Ladakh – land of high passes:  a region in the state of Jammu and Kashmir of Northern India, lies between the Karakoram mountain range to the north and the Himalayas to the south. The Indian portion of Ladakh is composed of the Leh and Kargil districts.

Ladakh lies between 32 to 36 degree north latitude and 75 to 80 degree east longitude.

Also famous as holding of the highest flat terrain of the Indian state of Kashmir with many of it being over 3,000m about Ladakh.

The best time to visit Ladakh is from June until September, the region’s summer season. At this time, Ladakh is an unmatched heaven, with patent, stunning views and warm and sunny weather – the average temperature range during the day is about 20–30°C. Keen trekkers naturally head to Ladakh during July and August, when the Manali-Leh and Srinagar-Leh highways are open to vehicles. That said, Ladakh is a land bound by two of the world’s highest mountain ranges – the Himalayas and Karakoram – anyone visiting Ladakh, even in the middle of summer, should be prepared for the sharp drop in temperatures at night.

Ladakh has a large selection of mid-range accommodation, with some offering decent value. If you’re coming from Manali you might find the selection somewhat limited, with attached bathrooms offering hot water somewhat hard to find. There are very few, if any, touts that are so common elsewhere in India, so looking around for accommodation here is much easier and less stressful as a result.
