Pangong Tso Lake

The sights of the picturesque lake from the Aamir Khan movie 3 Idiots is etched in our mind vividly and it’s none other than the Pangong Tso lake from Ladakh which stretches across the Indo-Bhutan border. Despite the administration’s rules against boating in the lake, you can ice skate at the edge of the frozen lake in winters.

Khardungla Pass


Apparently, popular as the highest motorable road, Khardungla Pass is well known amidst adrenaline junkie circles due to the travel being aptly named ‘adventure of a lifetime’.



Zanskar River


Zanskar River, like the beauty of Ladakh, is evergreen! During summers, the river offers one of the best rafting experiences in India whereas in winters, the frozen translucent river hosts travelers for the Chadar trek usually done in November.



Monasteries


Ladakh houses not only beautiful terrains but also exemplary people and enchanting architecture in the form of monasteries. Some of the popular monasteries that sway you with their charm are the Spituk Gompa monastery, sitting atop of a hill like the cherry on top of a cake; the Namgyal Monastery which has hosted the Dalai Lama himself; the Hemis Monastery; the Lamayuru Monastery where star-gazing is a thing; Likir Monastery, and more.

Leh Palace


The once royal abode of the Namgyal King, the 9 storeyed Leh Palace now lies in ruins. Built in the 17th century, the historic architecture of the Leh Palace is something to watch out for and the Stok Kangru and Zanskar ranges that surround the place are also a sight to behold.



Unique Flora and Fauna


The flora and fauna in Ladakh is rare and unique, which makes a visit to the zoo mandatory. The place has preserved the flora and fauna well and a snow leopard is one of the most beautiful creatures found in this area.



Biking


A bike trip across Ladakh is on the bucket list of zillions from around the world. Bikes can easily be rented here, however, avoid the monsoon season as during this time there is a high occurrence of landslides which leads to long traffic jams in the area where traffic is just stranded and despite best efforts by the administration, the road takes hours to clear up.
