Leh

Leh Town and Surrounding Hills

Unimaginable Beauty ……

Seen from air, the veins of dazzling Leh fan out across a tiny valley nestled in the lap of the majestic Himalayas. Mud houses and fields of barley mix with sparkling streams and endearing local people in Leh, which is the biggest city in Laddakh and its headquarters.

Adding another layer to the incredible natural beauty of the place is an array of mesmerising stupas that dot it, vibrating with timeless strains of Buddhist spirituality. Leh refreshes every city-worn visitor in no time. If Srinagar is the peacock feather in the crown of Kashmir, Leh is surely a gleaming jewel.
