MAJESTIC LADAKH

Our program is subject to modification and adaptation based on opportunities, local and weather constraints or unforeseen circumstances.

Itinerary

The traditional culture of Ladakh evolved from Tibetan Buddhism. Evidence of this can be found in the many, centuries old, monasteries that are found in almost every village throughout Ladakh. A large population of monks provides for the religious and spiritual needs of the people, and are the most respected members of society. Most Ladakhi homes have a small chapel, even in the tents of the nomads, containing various religious objects and sacred images. Other visible signs of the Buddhist faith are prayer flags, stupas and Mani walls. An infusion of more Tibetans has occurred as a result of the Chinese invasion of Tibet in the 1950’s.

The people in the Dha Hanu area and around Drass descended from the Buddhist Dards, who originated in Gilgit, Pakistan. Those in the Dha Hanu area are called Brokpas and still practice their Buddhist faith. Those around Drass have converted to Islam under the influence of nearby Kashmir. In Kargil and the Suru Valley, the population is predominately Baltis. This area was part of Baltistan until 1947. They have Tibetan origins, but were converted to Islam in the 15th century and the majority of them are Shiite Muslims.
With its history as a trading centre on the old caravan route, Leh has a mixture of cultures living and working together.
