'LADAKH', to the north of India, in the J & K State, has been referred to by many names like 'The Broken Moon land', 'The Land of Lamas & Monasteries', 'Little Tibet', 'Rooftop of the World', because no single name can essentially capture the essence of this mystical land. Ladakh is a perfect, unique, adventurous, and beautiful example of nature's gift to man. Lying between the great Himalayas in the south & the Karakoram mountain peaks to the north Ladkh truly signifies wilderness and adventure.
Being an abode of rivers like Indus, Shyok, Siachen, and shimmering lakes like Tsomoriri, Pangong, Tsokar, with abundant wildlife, it has increasingly attracted tourists for over two decades. It's still preserved ancient ways and culture is dominated by Buddhist traditions in the Leh district and Muslim way of living in Kargil. Ladakh in addition has many other races like the Mongolian, Aryans, Brokpas, and Nomads all living peacefully together in this land of bliss.
In the past Ladakh used to be ruled independently by its kings of which the Namgyal dynasty is the most famous, later after the invasion of Dogras from Jammu, it was ruled by Gulab Singh. Then came a powerful ruler, the British and subsequently it was incorporated with the J & K state of India after India's independence.
