Dalai Lama’s former home (Tibet’s Potala Palace), overlooks the old town’s bazaar and
mazelike lanes.
Ladakh is a region administered by India as a union territory. Until 2019, Ladakh was a
region of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. In August 2019, the Parliament of India passed an
act by which Ladakh became a union territory on 31 October 2019.The largest town in
Ladakh is Leh, followed by Kargil.The Leh district contains the Indus, Shyok and Nubra river
valleys. The Kargil district contains the Suru, Dras and Zanskar river valleys. The main
populated regions are the river valleys, but Ladakh is one of the most sparsely populated
regions in India and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. It is renowned
for its remote mountain beauty and culture.

Nakeela is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 4.769m (15,647ft) above sea level,

by the Manali-Leh-Highway, on the way to Manali from Taglang La. Nakeela Pass is the third
of the five passes to be crossed while traveling from Manali to Leh. It is between Sarchu and
Pang. You've got to be really careful with the wheels because of pathetic road conditions
that could test the patience of even the most seasoned drivers. But you really deserve a
medal if you've driven on the road.The ascent to the pass is called 21 'Gata loops'. It’s 23km
ascent from 4250m to 4980m to the Nakee-la, with 21 hairpin bends. The road is said to be
haunted by the ghost of a tourist who was buried here. People offer cigarettes and mineral
water on the spot and then carry on with their journey.

India at the Indo-Pakistan war.
Leh Palace The Leh Palace, also known as 'Lhachen Palkhar' is one of the most historically
rich edifices that can be found in the country and is located in the breathtakingly beautiful
town of Leh. This grand structure was built in the 17th century by King Sengge Namgyal as a
royal palace, overlooking the town of Leh and the King and his family were the former
residents of the majestic mansion. The Leh Palace is also one of the tallest buildings of its
time with nine stories in all, and offers marvellous panoramic views of the entire town of
Leh, as well as of the Stok Kangri and Zanskar mountains of the mighty Himalayan ranges,
thereby giving the palace a strategic position.The palace was abandoned when Dogra forces
took control of Ladakh in the mid-19th century and forced the royal family to move to Stok
Palace.
Magnet Hill is a "Cyclops hill" located near Leh. The layout of the area and surrounding
slopes create the optical illusion of a hill. The hill road is actually a downhill road. Objects
and cars on the hill road may appear to roll uphill in defiance of gravity when they are, in
fact, rolling downhill.
Gurudwara Pathar Sahib is a highly revered gem located 25 miles away from Leh town on
Kargil Leh Highway. Devoted to Guru Nanak Dev Ji, the founder of Sikh Religion, the sacred
place beautifully commemorates his visit to Ladakh. Dating back to 1517, the Gurudwara
houses a boulder with imprints of the head, shoulders and backside of Shree Guru Nanak
Dev.

bylanes, all of which have small shops selling a variety of products. One can find everything
here from shoes to clothes and woolen wear as well as jewelry. Also, carpets, shawls, and
souvenirs are available here. The Tibetan Refugee Market is also set up here which sells
