Starting From Heart



Ladakh is known as “the Moonland”, “Little Tibet” or even more romantically as “the last Shangri-La”. Ladakh is the most remote region of India. It is a barren, virtually rainless area. Ladakh beckons for more than one reason. The defiance of its barren landscape, its unique flora and fauna, its culture, its clear blue skies, and clean air, and its land where snow never melts and only corn ripens has more to offer a good holiday for you.
