LADAKH, AN extension of the Gobi Desert and Tibetan plateau, comprises some of the world’s highest and harshest terrain. Large stretches of stark high-altitude deserts and ‘moonscapes’ makes this a forbidding landscape of view even from within the safe embrace of an aircraft – but there is also a strange beauty, an attraction that is almost addictive. At an altitude of 14,000ft, it is essential that you acclimatise yourself, it the rarefied air is not to overwhelm you. Accommodation is simple, even basic, but comfortable.
Driving out of the capital Leh, you are faces with the everchanging palate of the mountains…… …unbelievable hues of purple and red that stand out in sharp contrast to snow-capped peaks. Scrub and rough tenacious ground cover do little to clothe the starkness. The land seems empty, until a faint tinkle of bells heralds the arrival of pashm goats, whose coat veilds the famous pashmina, followed by the nomadic herdsmen with their yak and sheep. The predominantly Buddhist region has Gompas (monasteries) clinging to mountaintops in what seen the most precarious locations.
