Leh Ladakh Tour

At a distance of 17 km south of Leh is one one of the most beautiful monastery of Ladakh region - the Thiksey Monastery. Initially, the gompa was constructed by Sherab Zangpo at Stakmo, however, later, his nephew, Paldan Sherab, established the monastery atop a hill to the north of Indus River. The monastery, belonging to the Gelukpa order, spreads over 12 storeys with a private abode of incarnate lama at the top.

Ladakh's landscapes and wilderness beckons every traveller. A trip to this place uncovers its sheer beauty of mammoth mountainscapes. This trip to the Himalayas and more so to the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir state is one of the most fulfilling experiences one can have. Aimed at the production of meaningful and jaw dropping landscape photographs, a small group of photography enthusiasts will form this team. Destinations that are worth investing one's time are picked after careful forethought especially keeping in mind the tour's objective being Landscape Photography. Though not a promise one can expect to sight and photograph some of Himalaya's endemic wildlife like the Marmots, Gulls, Goose, Ducks, Wild Asses and Blue Sheep.

Ladakh known for its beautiful landscapes, provides some great opportunities to make pictures of contrasting terrain, landscapes, mountains, ridges, alpine meadows, clear blue skies and lakes, snow-peaked mountains, winding roads and the list can go on. To enjoy Ladakh fully, one has to first get accustomed to the place, its weather, the altitude and more so, to the beauty of the magnificent land of the painted mountains. One can probably get acclimatised to the altitude by spending a day or two there, but getting to witness the sheer beauty of this amazing place is something which is usually beyond imagination.

SHEY PALACE AND GOMPA: Situated on a hillock 15 Kms upstream from Leh, it was once the residence of the royal family. According to tradition, it was the seat of power of the pre-Tibetan kinds. A 7.5 mts high copper statue of Buddha, plated with gold and the largest of its kind, is installed here.


 

THIKSEY GOMPA: 19 Kms from Leh, spectacularly sited, Thiksey is one of the largest and architecturally most impressive Gompas. There are several temples in this Gompas, containing images, stupas and wall paintings of Buddha, which are exquisite.

    
HEMIS GOMPA: 40 Kms from Leh, it is the wealthiest, best known and biggest Gompa of Ladakh. Its popularity stems from the major annual festival held here in summer. The festival is in honor of Guru Padma Sambhava's birth anniversary. It also has the largest Thanka in Ladakh which is unfurled once in 12 years (nest in 2004) Hemis was built in 1630 during the reign of Singge Namgyal, an illustrious ruler of Ladakh. It flourished under the Namgyal Dynasty for the royalty favored the Drugpa sect, which is managed the monastery. It is divided into two, the assembly hall on the right and the main temple on the left. The hall (Dukhang) is also used as "green room" by the dancers during the festival. The temple is known as Tshogkhang. The verandahs have a surfeit of frescoes, among them the Buddhist "Wheel Of Life" (Kalachakra) and the lords of the four quarters, besides the prayer wheel.

 



Leh Fort

Acclimatisation is important, so we'll take it slow on arrival: we'll settle in at the hotel and your Shoot Director will probably take advantage of the lull to brief you on the visual treats and challenges coming over the next few days, and what to expect when we're out there shooting and exploring.

  

Come early afternoon, we’ll set out by car to the 17th-century Leh Fort, the most famous landmark in town. From the Fort there's short trail up to Tsemo Palace; the light walking can help you acclimatise, but we’ll gladly whisk you to the top by car if you prefer. At the top is a big reward: sweeping 360° views of Leh, the valley and its surrounding mountains, which includes the well-known Stok Kangri peak, towering in the distance at a height of 6,137m.
