Marvel at this stunning high-altitude desert


Leh occupies a beautiful setting, looking out at the entire Stok Range and its centerpiece, 20,190-foot Stok Kangri, a popular summer climb. The city is known as ‘Little Tibet,’ and is a far cry from the rest of India. It has a low population density, minimal traffic, excellent environmental programs (the city is trying to become polystyrene-free, has refillable water bottle depots, and an automobile-free central downtown area), and is a great place to rest and enjoy a wide array of international restaurants and cafes after some rough time in the Ladakhi outback.
