AT AN AVERAGE ALTITUDE OF 15,000 FEET, the tranquil region of Ladakh is a deeply impressionable place. The geography is humbling and spectacular, this desert in the Himalayas has a knack of turning every photograph into potential desktop wallpaper—and the people, locals and visitors, are inspiring. After a day in Delhi fly to the picturesque Leh valley at an altitude of 11300ft. Over the next few days visit some of Ladakh`s spectacular Buddhist monasteries. Take the high road to Nubra valley via Khardung La Pass, the world`s highest motorable road at almost 18390ft and experience a thrilling ride in the silver sand dunes on rare Himalayan double-humped camels.
