Home India City Guide Travel to Leh India

Leh is the main town of the Ladakh region, situated on the Karakoram Mountains at a height of 3500m. It is at the crossroads of Central Asia and still retains powerful traces of its history. Centuries ago this was an important stop on the old caravan silk route from China. Today it’s a military base and tourist centre, but wandering the winding back streets of the town is still fascinating. It’s about 10 km north east of the Sindh (Indus) River in a fertile side valley.

Leh Palace The town of Leh, an oasis in the remote ranges, has highly developed tourists facilities besides being the take-off point for various treks in the region, whitewater rafting trips on the Indus or just sightseeing from the warm comfort of a taxi. Take a walk in the narrow and winding lanes in the bazaar at the foot of the sprawling Leh Palace and you will see – burgundy robed monks going about their usual tasks, rows of vegetable sellers, gnarled old men selling apricots
