The Bactrian Camels around sand dunes are the main attractions of the place. Deskit and Samstanling monasteries are the other places to visit.

While in Ladakh, its weather will be the most influencing thing for you. It is not simpatico and only the ones with no health problem are advised to go there. Even the healthy people take some time to accumulate with the adverse climatic conditions there. The icy cold, swift wind and a jaw-dropping altitude are some of the challenges that Ladakh's clime presents for you. But if you brush aside the fear, then you'll collect the memories of a lifetime. This snowy heaven is superbly beautiful and offers a lot beyond your imaginations. The only time to enjoy a trip to Ladakh is between April and September.
