Despite travelling in Ladakh is getting more and more popular, it is still not too easy to manage. „If a valley is only accessible via high passes, there will be just good freinds or worse enemies visiting”. What was valid during centuries for Ladakh is nowadays out-dated – not only because the plane is flying over the high pass in 1 ¼ hrs. from Delhi since quite a while. Due to the remote location in the high altitude, the arrival is still not easy – who gets out of the plane on the 3.500 m high airport has to gasp for oxygen and the journey overland from Delhi via Manali still takes at least 3 days. The heartiness and warmth of the Ladakhis, the breathtaking rock-formations, the spiritual atmosphere of the monasteries – all that compensates easily the effort combined with a journey to the Indian Himalaya.
