Gegraphically, Leh is known as the capital of the great Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh, but one look at the magnificent mountains will tell you that the place is beyond any description could be given. Visit the beautiful Buddhist stupas, and say hello to the snow leopard at Hemis National Park. The region offers some of the most memorable trekking routes for avid travelers, and is also a biker’s paradise. The thrill of riding a bike on the Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable road is something you must experience.

From the countless monasteries to the breathtaking landscapes, Leh weaves the mountains into a beautiful story lined with clear water lakes, scenic cold deserts, quaint towns and piece de resistance – The Leh Palace.

Leh is well connected to the rest of the country through regular flights from major airports and is best visited between May and September as the place doesn’t experience monsoon. The preferred way to travel to Leh, however, is by road as the scenic beauty during the journey is an experience by itself. Well, who said getting to heaven was hard?
