Snow-capped mountains, stunning vistas, unexplored valleys and villages, fascinating ancient town, whitewashed monasteries, maroon-robed monks that are abuzz, bazaars that whine the musical sounds, multi-lingual folklore enjoying the simple delectable delights of their life. Yes, this is Ladakh in India! A dream destination for any escapist and nature lover.
Known to be one of the rare places on earth which is original, fresh and un-explored, Ladakh is one of the best kept secrets of India. Located in the far north in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, with a high altitude desert dominated by rugged snowcapped mountains and deep turquoise lakes, it is one of the most picturesque places on earth. Also referred to as ‘little Tibet’, Ladakh is a gateway into the timeless world of the Tibetan Plateau. Geographically protected from the ravages of the Chinese Cultural Revolution, it is one of the few places where Tantric Buddhism still exists and thrives.
A special place like Ladakh asks for a unique way to stay. How about a luxury glamping experience? A stay in an opulent canvas bastion, surrounded by the stunning scenery is a good way to unwind in an aura of unmatched beauty and serenity.
Besides the feeling of staying right in the heart of Ladakh, a lot of activities can be found in this part of India as well. From Morning Prayer to an adrenalin River rafting. From spinning prayer wheels at the monasteries to candle light vigils at hilltop villages and gentle walks. The mix of dramatic landscapes, cultural charm and the activities provide an authentic local life experience, including religion and customs.
The best way to marvel the rich and diverse culture of Ladakh, is by experiencing the Hemis Festival (June 2015). At this prominent festival, you can reconnect with your spiritual side while immersing and rejuvenating in the teachings of His Holiness the Dali Lama.
Enjoy and discover Ladakh in your own style and pace. With summertime just around the corner, a luxury sojourn during the summer months (June to September) would be a good idea.
