The month of September and some of October are considered to be the best time to visit Ladakh. The enticing landscape furthers your desire to be in a dream land like this! The month of March is considered to be the best time to visit Ladakh for adventure trip. However, the months from April to mid-May remain the peak season for Ladakh tourism and therefore, it isn’t a very good experience for people primely in search of serenity.
Well, Ladakh could be reached by a number of ways. Firstly, via air, or even by bus. Various government and private buses run from Srinagar and Manali. It could be reached by Train. The nearest railway station being Tawi (700 km away from Ladakh). Bikers often travel on their bikes with the mooching swag! Car or shared Taxi are two other possibilities to reach the same!
Ladakh is truly a piece of heaven. The beauty of the same stuns you like no other. You are compelled to get lost in the hypnotising charm of the same. But before you are completely high on the scintillating beauty, let’s brief you on some of the best places here!
- Sangam At Nimmu
Along the Srinagar-Leh highway lies Sangam, that is the meeting point of two rivers at Nimmu. Here, Indus waters meet the Zanskar waters. The confluence is magically propositioned into a bamboozling sight. Aah beautiful is the word! It is located in the Sham Valley.
- Shanti Stupa
Located in Leh, Shanti Stupa is a white-domed monument situated on a hill facing the snow-capped peaks. Celebrating 2500 years of Buddhism, it was built by a Japanese Buddhist. The stupa holds a golden Buddha statue, imaging his birth and death. Being at a height, the Stupa offers you a magical view of the valley below. At night, it’s all lit up, thus mesmerising you totally. Trust us, much like us all, you too will end up saying that you all haven’t come across something like this ever before!
- Leh Palace
Leh palace is a stupendous example of being the finest examples of medieval Tibetan architecture. Its stature is further risen by being compared to the world famous PotaPalaceace in Lhasa. The walls of the palace are made of stone, sand, mud and wood- making it warm and cosy in winters and breezy and cool in the summer season! The interiors are festooned with crowns, ceremonial dresses, jewellery and artistic paintings, as old as 450 years and made from colours derived from powdered stones and gems. There are even murals etched on the walls that tell us of the glorious past. It’s truly your place to be if you happen to be a staunch aesthete!
- Khardunga La Pass
If you recall your GK books from your primary classes, then you would surely know of what we are talking about! Khardunga La pass is the world’s highest motorable road. It’s located at an astounding altitude of 18,380 feet. Tea lovers often stop here for hot and promising Chai amidst the surreal snow-covered landscape. We know of none who don’t have this place in their bucket list. It’s your turn to finally tick off this from yours! It’s a favourite passage amongst bikers, cyclists and travel junkies.
P.s, higher altitudes (lesser oxygen) prevent you from being here for too long!
Turtuk is the closest village to the LOC that tourists are permitted to visit. The landscapes are crazy since it’s barren wastelands all overs with rather lush green apricot and peach fields. The village is much known for the prevalent Balti culture. The Balti cuisine is promising and rather delicious- especially the apricot-based stew. The river Shyok meanders through the village, Turtuk making it hell more aesthetic and truly promising as one of the best off-beat places in Leh-Ladakh!
- Pangong Tso Lake
Remember the Pangong Tso- the one you saw in the movie “3 idiots” towards the end. Yes, the lake is now the most popular destination in Ladakh. Now, there’s this thing about this authentic lake side that’s phenomenal to look at, at any point of time in the day, even night! The clear blue sky right above peeps at the crystal-clear waters down below, making it a picturesque scene already. Dear photographers, here’s pointing out to your respite!
Ps, the surrounding mountains make the place alluring beyond words!
- Hemis National Park
It’s located in the eastern Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, and is often referred to as the Snow Leopard Capital of India. The national park as the local name says is best known for sheltering the highest density of snow leopard in the world. Moreover, it is home to 16 mammal species and 73 bird species as per records. Snow leopards are a frequent sight here. You can also engage in bird-watching in the Rumbak Valley!
