Have you ever had that feeling when you are just in awe of what you see in front of you? a sight what can be best described as the magic of god and you have to actually take in a deep breath and give yourself a couple of seconds so that your brain can actually register what is in front of you. Well if you haven't then you are missing out on something called life. You then need to come to Ladakh – a civilization over a 1000 years old in the most hostile enviourment in the world is nothing short than gods magic.
Located in the state of Jammu and Kashmir Ladakh was not open to foreign tourists till a few years ago, even Indian nationals needed a permit to venture in ladakh. Things have now changed .most of ladakh can be accessed by roads, many of them having the credit of being the highest in the world.

The road from Manali to leh on which I have traveled more than five times never lets you down in terms of the awesome sights, sheer adventure and of course the challenge that it presents to you while riding a bike. It is 480 kms of pure adrenaline and is a bikers delight. Crossing passes at a height of 16000 feet plus requires determination more then skill. These 480 kms can take anything between 2-4 days with 3 days being ideal and you get to stop at some of the most pictureous places you will ever come across. A nights halt at the pictureous town of Jispa followed by camping for a night in the valley of Sarchu or next to the Tso kar lake . The next morning you leave for the city of Leh crossing the Tanglanga pass which is the second highest motorable road in the world.

While traveling on Leh Manali road one can experience first hand the change in mountains, people, and culture. You leave the Manali hills full of trees and enter a land where nothing grows. You come across fellow riders who stop at a tea stall at 13000 feet and then cross the lake at Baralacha pass which cannot be described in words. One sight after the other, one experience after the other, it is definitely an experience of a lifetime. A pilgrimage one needs to undertake year after year. Do not think that the journey finishes once you reach leh. There are things to see like 1000 year old monasteries where way of like has not been corrupted, places to go like camping like the Nubra valley, and lakes to visit in this cold desert. It is a place that just sucks you in by its beauty and the warmth to its people.

I promise you, a road trip to Ladakh is a journey of a life time. Its sheer beauty and starkness will make you wonder if you are on planet earth. Ladakh is a high altitude desert and is a pretty harsh place to stay; the beauty of this place can only be experienced first hand. Ladakh is crisscrossed with ancient Buddhist monasteries and small villages which provide color to other wise barren Ladakhi landscape.

Tibetan Buddhists are represented in Ladakh by 5 different sects.
The principal town in Ladakh is Leh (3500meters) known as the Roof of the world.
This town is the hub of activity and the starting point of many an adventure treks and exciting road trips. The dominating feature of this town is the Leh Palace; this 9 storied palace was built by Sengge Namgyal in 1630. The architecture is same as the Potala Palace in Lhasa. The other important forts and monasteries in and around Leh are the Namgyal Tesemo (Kings Palace) ten minutes from the town is the Zorawar Fort and the Moravian Church. The Peace Pagoda (Shanti Stupa) was built by the Japanese Buddhists in 1980 is situated near the city.
