Bike/Jeep Ride to Leh-Ladakh Festival season tour From 25th July to 8th August 2015

LEH-LADAKH…Land of Heavenly landscapes
————————–—-———————-——–————-
Leh is the land of valleys and mountain passes offering breathtaking views and panorama to remember for a lifetime! There are many passes on the way to Leh and in Leh. The most famous is the Khardung La or the Gateway to Shyok and Nubra valley. The territory of Ladakh represents some 70 per cent of area of the State of Jammu and Kashmir with the lowest density of population in the world which is less than one or two per square kilometer. 
The effect of elevation and isolation amidst snowy mountains has made the countryside forbiddingly arid and produced one of the most unusual climates in the world. Burning heat during the day is normally followed by extreme cold at night and dry cold air makes you feel its presence. The average annual rainfall is less than four inches. As you drive up and down this arid, barren, sun-beaten and wind-swept countryside, you may get a peculiar feeling that you are somewhere on the lunar surface – this topography character has given Ladakh the term “Moonland”.
A place which is a Heaven for Bikers and Photographers……
