Welcome To Our Site!

LADAKH, the far flung eastern corner of troubled Jammu and Kashmir state, is India's most remote and sparsely populated region, a high - altitude desert cradled by the Karakoram and Great Himalayas ranges. For tourists, this barren and breathless land offers a window on a unique glimpsed by a few intrepid western travellers.

The first settlements, along the upper Indus, were established by Mons, Buddhist pilgrims on their way from India to Mt Kailash in Tibet. The Brokpa tribe, who today live in Dha- Hanu, are the last Indo-Iranian people to still follow Buddhism.

In the 9th century, Ladakh's influence extended beyond the Indus Valley and during this time many forts and palaces, including Shey, were constructed. In the late 14th century Tsongkhapa, a Tibetan pilgrim, introduced to Ladakh a Buddhist order headed by the first Dalai-Lama. The new order, known as Gelupka, flourished and led to the founding of gompas at Tikse, Likkir and Spituk.
