Leh, India

Leh, India is a sleepy, remote town in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, once the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh.  It is set at just about the northern most point of India, and in fact sits very close to highly disputed borders with China and Pakistan.  The great majority of the local population is ethnic Tibetan, Tibetan Buddhism is the majority religion, and after spending months in Tibet, I can say that it has a very Tibetan feel to it.

I’m writing about Leh now, 5 years after I visited it, simply because I’ve been researching places to travel this summer, and this one is high one the list.  I’m afraid that it has been so long, that I really don’t have much to write about.  I’ll just give you a few memories, and of course a few pictures!
