Leh, the highest plateau in the Himalayas of India is a desert city, is the capital of the Leh region in northern India’s Jammu and Kashmir state. Originally a stop for trading caravans, Leh is now known for its Buddhist sites and nearby trekking areas. Massive 17th-century Leh Palace, modeled on the Dalai Lama’s former home (Tibet’s Potala Palace), overlooks the old town’s bazaar and mazelike lanes.
Being the northernmost part of the country it extends from the Himalayas to Kunlun Ranges and also includes the upper Indus River valley. Ladakh region is divided into two districts, Leh and Kargil. Ladakh is a sparsely populated region but is dominated by people following Buddhism and Islam.
The word Ladakh means Land of High Passes. It is also called the Moon-Land and the Cold Desert because of its barren topography and extreme temperature during the night and in winters.
Summers are quite pleasant, all the passes open and snow at some regions.
