A trip to Ladakh in northernmost India brings you to the most authentic, traditional, fascinating Tibetan Buddhist communities on earth. Ladakh is separated culturally, geographically, and politically from Hindu and Muslim areas of India. In Ladakh, you can explore the tranquility of remote Buddhist communities, ancient monasteries, and wild mountains where snow leopards still roam. Ladakh is the best place in India to travel for cultural interactions with highland Buddhist people. Ladakh trips reward the patient and persistent ecotourist with incomparable experiences, friendships and memories. Visit safe, compassionate, beautiful, remote, ancient Ladakh on a tour with Journeys.
