Famous for the best rafting tours in Leh, it is a place where the forces of nature conspire to render a magical unrealistic landscape of contrasts between the browns hues of a desert and sapphire blue lakes, between burning sun and freezing winds and snow-capped mountains and sand dunes. This highland is a bridge between heaven and earth.
Open to tourists only in the last decade, Leh is enchanting and faithful to ancestral customs yet traveler friendly. The highest inhabited land in the world casts a spell on all tourists with varied attractions. Life in this land is characterized by spirituality with Stupas reaching the sky, monasteries literally hanging from cliffs and crags and monks in ceremonial dresses unfurling scrolls.
The enchantment of rugged valleys, snow-covered mountains, barren hills, clean and curvy roads and the confluence of green ‘Indus River’ with the brown ‘Zanskar River’ cannot be described in words. A hill with magnetic properties which can pull cars upwards and compel aircrafts to change altitude to escape interference is a wonder of nature.
Camp at the iconic Pangong Tso Lake with clear turquoise waters and watch the moon rise between hills with its mirror image on water. The startling sight will be inscribed permanently in your mind. Scale the highest motorable pass ‘the Khardung La Pass’ in the world on bike tours and admire the beauty of Himalayas. Lamayuru will blow you away with moon-like landscapes carved into the hills. Rafting through the Zanskar River is a thrilling and must have experience on your holiday in Leh. Leh is easy to fall in love but take things easy on arrival, acclimatize and start enjoying a gamut of adventures.
