In the mythical indus valley

Leh is the capital of the remote region of Ladakh , in the far north of India. The city is the region's only city with a direct air connected to the rest of India. Cut off for several months a year by snow, Leh is nestled in the mythical Indus valley under the shadow of the peaks of the Himalayas. In springtime, the area fills up with trekkers and adventurers since the city is an incredible starting point for hiking trails can reach, in some cases, all the way to the border with China. Leh was fascinating, possibly because it's so different from the rest of India. Its inhabitants arrived from Tibet centuries ago, and wear dark clothes made of rough wool which is decorated with jewels and colored stones. You can see Mongolian traits in their traditions and they still cling to Buddhism. The village has a large 'gompa' (Buddhist monastery) circled by colorful flags at the top as well as several very simple accommodations, shops where the Ladakhis sell their interesting crafts, restaurants to eat cheap, good homemade food, slow internet cafes, and trekking agencies to book an adventure.

Leh

This is where I learned that His Holiness, the Dalai Lama dictates:

1. Do not Think About the past or what may happen in the future

2. Let the mind flow of its own accord without thought

3. Observe the mind's nature of luminous clarity

4. Hold on to this experience

Another himalayan india ...

Discover Leh is done in small steps, first because it is more than 3000 meters above sea level, a high gradient between the bottom of the city - where stands a Catholic church and which rounds the dome of the provincial seat - the upper area of ​​Sankar, and secondly because it is only one foot can sample the delights of the corners of the city. Like most laddakhis villages, Leh stood on the bank of a tributary of the Indus. The waters of this stream are judiciously used to supply the city and irrigate fields. This would cut the valley strips parallel to the river to the west, the vast rocky extent is the field of military. Then, on an eminence, the Shanti stupa dominates the city. This plump monument erected to the glory of Buddhism through the financial support of Japan, was inaugurated by the Dalai Lama in 1985. Then comes the green zone, with its terraces of barley, rapeseed and vegetables, with tall poplars. This is where Leh is revitalized. In this garden of Eden, guest houses and hotels flourish. Tourists flock and businesses have hatched, led by Kashmiri merchants. On the left bank, at the foot of the hill the palace, the old town and the city center deserve a thorough visit. Then the polo field, plaza a little sad, is hardly ever used only during the annual festival. On the slopes, dry and mineral, live humble: fountains, women assume fetching water every morning before the stage, we see together hundreds of men, a food container to hand, come in a long wait sometimes let their arms the day.

Une autre inde ... himalayenne

Découvrir Leh s'effectue par petites touches, d'abord parce qu'on est à plus de 3000 mètres d'altitude, qu'un dénivelé important sépare le bas de la ville - où s'élève une église catholique et où s'arrondit le dôme du siège provincial - du quartier supérieur de Sankar, ensuite parce que ce n'est qu'à pied qu'on peut goûter aux charmes des recoins de la cité. Comme la plupart des villages laddakhis, Leh s'est établie sur la rive d'un affluent de l'Indus. Les eaux de ce torrent sont judicieusement utilisées pour approvisionner la ville et irriguer des champs. On pourrait ainsi découper la vallée en bandes parallèles à la rivière : à l'ouest, la vaste étendue rocailleuse est le domaine des militaires. Puis, sur une éminence, le stupa de Shanti domine la ville. Ce monument dodu, élevé à la gloire du bouddhisme grâce au soutien financier du Japon, fut inauguré par le Dalaï Lama en 1985. Vient ensuite la zone verte, avec ses terrasses d'orge, de colza et de légumes, avec ses hauts peupliers. C'est là que Leh prend un nouvel essor. Dans ce jardin d'Eden, guest houses et hôtels fleurissent. Les touristes affluent et les commerces ont éclos, sous l'impulsion de marchands cachemiris. Sur la rive gauche, au pied de la colline du palais, la vieille ville et le centre urbain méritent une visite approfondie. Ensuite, le terrain de polo, esplanade un peu triste, n'est plus guère utilisé qu'à l'occasion du festival annuel. Sur le versant est, sec et minéral, vivent les humbles : aux fontaines, des femmes assument la corvée d'eau et, chaque matin, devant le stade, on voit se rassembler des centaines d'hommes qui, un récipient de nourriture à la main, viennent, en une longue attente parfois, louer leurs bras à la journée.

Now is 50 km. Away from Leh, the capital of Ladak, the scenery was still spectacular. While urban cores made everything more real, no doubt you fit what you see through the window is worthy to see. When coming points of special beauty we look like not so much but here urban settlements are Buddhist character and continuing villages are dotted with "chortenes" and "gompas" an inordinate beauty, something not we can see in many more places in the world. Definitely a Grand Final for this journey from Manali to Leh did, stopping at Keylong in about a week. This trip traveler should be like going to the "Mecca" for Muslims, a must trip to do at least once in life ..

Ya a tán solo 50km. De distancia de Leh, la capital de Ladak, el paisaje seguía siendo espectacular. Si bien los nucleos urbanos hacían todo más real, que no os quepa duda que lo que se vé a través de la ventana es dignísimo de ver. Puede que al venir de otros lugares de una hermosura especial nos parezca que no lo es tanto pero, aquí los asentamientos urbanos són de carácter budista y los continuos poblados están salpicados de "chortenes" y "gompas" de una belleza desmesurada, algo que no podemos ver en muchos más lugares del mundo. Sin duda un grán final para este trayecto que hice desde Manali hasta Leh, con parada en Keylong, en aproximadamente una semana. Este viaje tendría que ser al viajero como ir a "la Meca" para los musulmanes, un viaje obligado que hacer al menos una vez en la vida..

Leh è la " Capitale " del Ladakh, che fa parte dello stato federato del Jammu e Kashmir.

Questa regione himalayana è conosciuta anche come piccolo Tibet, un'area di cultura tibetana rimasta in territorio indiano.
Leh è situata a 3500 metri di altitudine ed è uno spettacolo l'arrivo in volo fra le cime più alte del mondo !!!
E' il punto di arrivo per poi visitare questa regione che si estende su di un altopiano in prossimità delle alte vette del Karakorum.

La città non offre grandi attrattive, ma nei suoi dintorni si possono fare splendide escursioni e visitare i vicini monasteri di Phyang ed Hemis, nei quali si svolgono ogni anno famosi festival di danze rituali buddiste.
