Ladakh Experience (Women only)
So many experiences. So many stories to tell. That’s what Ladakh is. The land of high passes is blessed with natural beauty any other place in the world would envy. In ancient times it was an important outpost in the important silk route trade. Much of that richness esp. in culture and heritage is still very much reflective in the present day Ladakh. Not much else needs to be said about Ladakh. A surreal landscape vastly different from anything imaginable. Though so much has been talked and written about it that most people have an idea of the place, yet nothing can prepare you for what to expect the moment the door of the aircraft opens and this land opens its arms to you.
Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.Anonymous
