Tour Summary
Buddhism was introduced to Ladakh by Emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BC and religion has long played a pivotal role in local life as attested by the ubiquitous monasteries and colourful festivals for which Ladakh is famous. Tucked away in formidable mountain ranges in a region of extreme harshness and beauty, Ladakh, a land of gompas, journeying traders and entrenched traditions continues to hold enigmatic appeal.
