Ethnic and Culture of Ladakh
Dras (Drokpas) and Da-Hanu (Dukpas) belonging to the Aryan race, tibetans of Tsomoriri (Changpas) and the Ladakhies are nomadic tribes which inhabit the 95000 square km of the area. They preserve their ancient culture and tradition.

Rich Cultural background of Ladakh appeals to the lovers of art, culture and civilization. Monasteries, centuries old towns, ancient remains of age old religions like Buddhism make it a mystic land to explore.

It is the region through which ancient trade carvans passed to markets of Central Asia. Numerous monasteries lie within drive from Leh while many are more remote and require a few days to reach.

Each region and almost each village of Ladakh has its own Buddhist monastery. Providing shelter to monks and nuns, many of these edifices stand on rugged mountain sides, high above the valley floor and provide religious sustenance to the local populace strengthening their beliefs and traditions. All our pilgrimage tours are undertaken by Jeeps that provide easy access even to remote areas. We offer four select pilgrimage journeys to the major accessible monasteries and the villages that once hosted traders of the fabled silk route.

Friendly and extremely hospitable; a natural joie-de-vivre; ancient traditions; wizened monks; ancient famous monasteries; Tibetan form of Buddhism; socio-religious festivals; fertile fields ripening for harvest; Archery; Polo; dance and song. This is what Ladakh's culture is all about.

There are the ancient pure Aryan race of Drok pa, a small colourful community; the cheerful and hardy Changpa nomads with their herds of Yak, goat and sheep. Ladakh is rich in culture and our tours take you to experience this wide diversity of ethnic wealth.

Ladakh is the repository of ancient cultural heritage. It is the only place in the world where Tantrayans Buddhism is practiced as a way of life. People of this region are deeply drenched in music, dance and drama which embody religious fervor. Ladakhi songs and dances are simple in thought, content and performance and they portray simple and noble nature of the Ladakhi people.
