About Leh

Located in the vast flat and barren dry desert surrounded by the craggy and jagged peaks of the Himalayas, Leh truly is an oasis of zen and serenity that draws you to come and drink from the Lethe-like calm it offers and leave behind, if only for a while, the frantic struggles of city life.

A testament to its rich history and crucial location on the trade routes during the medieval times is, still extant and largely in a sound state, the Leh Palace. Built in the 1640s and 1650s it is an architectural feat that evokes in one a sense of admiration as well as incredulity. It is an instance of the concourse of a variety of cultural influences which again reflect diversity as the ethos of the land.

The Drogpa region is home to the ethnic tribe of Dards who have piqued the interest of ethnologists and anthropologists and have been termed the last remaining Aryan tribe on this side of the Indus river.

The next attraction is one most will remember from one the most beloved Bollywood movies, Three Idiots. That is correct it is the Pangong Lake. Although around 150 km from the town of Leh, this is one natural wonder that is singular, being one of the largest brackish water lakes in the world. Also, it is one of the last land-bound water bodies to have remained virtually unaffected by human activity.

In addition, Leh is home to a number of monuments some of them are, namely, Sculpture at Drass, Rock Cut Sculpture at Mulbekh, Lamayuru Monastery, Stupa at T- Suru, Shey Palace.

In recent years a number of music festivals have been held in Leh so make sure you check out for them and try to include them in your itinerary; for the magical couple of music and Leh is bound to draw you out of your office and into its spiritually nourishing lap.
