Popularly known as "Broken Moon Land", Ladakh is a land of snow carved peaks,
translucent Lakes, barren terrain and mystic culture. The district of Ladakh lies at
the border with Tibet at the most eastern corner of the State of Kashmir. Bounded
by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the
Karakoram, Ladakh is a land like no other. Ladakh is often referred to as the "Little
Tibet", or the "Last Shangri-La". Ladakh is the trans-Himalayan region, which
separates the western Himalayan peaks from the Tibetan plateau. In geological
terms, this is a young land, formed only a few million years ago by the buckling
and folding of the earth's crust as the Indian sub-continent pushed with irresistible
force against the immovable mass of Asia.
