Leh:
A one-time highly flourishing trade center along the historic Silk Route, Leh has forever been romancing with awe and mystery. With enough fantasmical elements to conjure up a swashbuckling story by someone like Robert E. Howard, this city spins a web of attractions that you would seldom find anywhere else. With colorful prayer flags fluttering on rooftops, lofty mountains walling the city (as if) from foreign winds, sprawling valleys cradling opulent meadows of green, mud brick houses that seem to emerge right off the face of the mountains, a silence broken only occasionally by somber ritualistic chants - Leh is your earthly ground for a cosmic experience. It is here that you will break your shackles from the outside world and become a wanderlust meanderer.

Snow covered boulevards, massive mountains, rushing rivers and verdant valleys together craft a landscape in northernmost region of India known to world as Ladakh. Remoteness of this valley from rest of the country has kept it away from urban culture and that differentiates it from usual Indian states. Karkoram and great Himalayan range are crowns of glory complimenting the raw beauty of the state. Existing amid all these natural creations are warm Ladakhi people with great cultural and traditional beliefs.
Distinguished geographical features act as magnet for ardent travelers who have that zeal to explore the unusual. Its barren mountain ranges have listed it as one of the most forbidding regions of world. This land is manifested with a fascinating unification of venerable religions, affluent cultural history and varied ethnic influences. Credit for cultural diversity goes to many missionaries, traders and explorers who crossed this valley in past. Leh being the capital city attracts a lot of tourism towards itself. This post shares information about Leh Ladakh that will help them to know all regarding Leh Ladakh.

Best season to visit Leh Ladakh:
Time period from June to September is regarded as ideal time simply because of warm bright days and pleasant nights. Although summer is the best season to visit Leh and Ladakh, it still gets a bit chilly.
Visitors can access this place by plane and by road. However, the roads here are only open for a few months in the year due to heavy snowfall. So best time to visit Ladakh is during summer.

LEH Religion:
Buddhism is the way of life in Leh . There is ancient Buddhist rock engravings all over the region, even in areas like Dras and the lower Suru Valley that today are inhabited by an exclusively Muslim population. The divide between Muslim, and Buddhist passes through leh (on the Kargil-Leh road) and between the villages of Parkachick and Rangdum in the Suru Valley, though there are pockets of Muslim population further east, in Padum (Zanskar), in Nubra Valley and in and around Leh. The approach to Buddhist village is invariable marked by mani walls which are long chest-high structures faced with engraved stones bearing the mantra in mane paddle hum and by shorten, commemorative cairns, like stone pepper-pots. Many villagers are crowned with a gompa or monastery which may be anything from an imposing complex of temples, prayer halls and monks dwellings, to a tiny hermitage housing a single image and home to solitary lama. Islam too came from the west. A peaceful penetration of the Shia sect spearheaded by missionaries, its success was guaranteed by the early conversion of the sub-rulers of Dras, Kargil and the Suru Valley. In these areas, mani walls and shorten are placed by mosques, often small unpretentious buildings, or Imambaras imposing structures in the Islamic style, surmounted by domes of sheet metal that gleam cheerfully in the sun.

Work Culture:
The demeanor of the people is affected by their religion, especially among the women. Among the Buddhists, as also the Muslims of the Leh area, women not only work in the house and field, but also do business and interact freely with men other that their own relations. In Kargil and its adjoining regions on the other hand, it is only in the last few years that women are emerging from semi-seclusion and taking jobs other than traditional ones like farming and house -keeping. The natural joie-de-vivre of the Ladakhis is given free rein by the ancient traditions of the region. Monastic and other religious festivals, many of which fall in winter, provide the excuse for convivial gatherings. Summer pastimes all over the region are archery and polo. Among the Buddhists, these often develop into open-air parties accompanied by dance and song, at which Chang, the local brew made from fermented barley, flows freely.

Ladakh Religion:
The predominant religion in Ladakh is the Tibetan form of Buddhism, although Islamic influences are found from the Kashmir Valley as far as Kargil, and there are some Christian families in Leh.

The Tibetan influence in Ladakh is manifest: all religious books and prayers are in the Tibetan language, the monastic orders in the gompas are those developed in Tibet and the gompa artwork is clearly Tibetan in origin. Even the architectural design of Leh Palace is very similar to that of Lhasa's Potala Palace. Tibetan Buddhism is built on an earlier Tibetan religion - Bon or Bon-Shamanism - and it incorporated many of Bon's demons and gods. It similarly incorporated many of the gods in the Hindu pantheon, transforming them into Bodhisattavas or different incarnations or manifestations of various personalities.

The walls of Ladakh's gompas are covered with illustrations of the Lord Buddha, his manifestations and followers, and the incorporated Bon and Hindu guardian deities in their various incarnations. It all makes for colourful and varied wall murals in every Ladakh gompa.

The monasteries follow each of the two main sects of Buddhism that developed in Tibet: the Karyu pa or red-hat sect and the Gelug pa or yellow-hat sect. The Dalai Lama, believed to be a reincarnation of the Boddhisattva Avalokitesvara, is the head of the Gelug-pa sect.

The gompas represent the monastic side of Buddhism, or lamaism. The lamaist side of Buddhism, requiring lon tation, contrasts with the everyday practice of Buddhism by Ladakhi lay people.

For Ladakhis, religion is a daily affair with visible rituals that are frequently observed. These include spinning prayer wheels, making pilgrimages to gompas, chortens, mani walls and holy tombs, chanting mantras and reciting prayers in the area of the home set aside as a chapel.

Ladakh Rrligion was Lamaist Buddhists inhabit most of Ladakh and have been believed to come from Tibet originally. The ancient Buddhist inscriptions and frock engravings are found all over Ladakh including the now Muslim-majority areas of Drass and lower Suru valleys. The 'Mani' walls mark the beginning of the Buddhist villages and Gompas or monasteries can abundantly be seen here ranging from a tiny hermitage to the large temple complexes of the monks. The culture and lifestyle of the people of Ladakh is deeply influence by their religion. However, there are a number of Muslim inhabitants here too, especially in the valleys of Drass, Kargil and Suru, mosques and Islamic-style 'Imambaras' can often be seen.

Work Culture:
People Religion and Culture Ladakh, the people of Ladakh bore much resemblance to Tibetans and Central Asians with their round faces, short stubby noses and small 'chinki' eyes with pronounced cheekbones. The people of the mountains, they have good stamina are accustomed to manual labor. However, they are considered to be soft and plain at heart. Originally, Ladakh was believed to be inhabited by the Indo-Aryan race of Dards, who originated somewhere down the River Indus, the regular influx of Tibetan people has resulted in the disappearance of racial characteristics of 'Dards' here and most of the population of eastern and central Ladakh wears Tibetan facial features. Fusion of the facial features of different origins. 'Arghons' of Leh are a community of Muslims that are believed to be the descendants of the mixed marriages of local women and merchants who came here from Kashmir and Central Asia.

Ladakhis are known for their cheerful disposition and most of their festivals fall in winters, which serve as an excuse for social and convivial gatherings. In summers, archery competitions and native version of polo are quite common and especially among the Buddhists, these competitions are often a local ball where folk songs and dances add to the jovial atmosphere and 'Chang', the local barley beer is amply used. The rich collection of oral literature of the region is full of occasion-special songs and poems and includes the localized versions of the Tibetan epic, 'Kesar Saga'. This is Culture of Ladakh.

Ladakh Fairs Festivals. In Ladakh every occasion marriage, birth, harvesting, commemoration of head Lamas founding of the monastery, Losar (new year) and flowering is marked by feasting, dancing and the singing of folksongs that forms a part of its living heritage. Most of the festivals are held in winter but some popular festival take place in summer too. The monastic festivals are the heart of all the festivals. Monks wearing colorful silk garments and different facial mask perform them.

The Ladakhi language is called Bhoti, and by linguists more generally called Western Archaic Tibetan when the Balti and Burig or Purig or Purki dialects are included, is the predominant language in the Ladakh region of the Jammu and Kashmir state of India, and is also spoken in Baltistan. Ladakhi is closely related to Tibetan, and the Ladakhi people share cultural similarities with Tibetans, including Tibetan Buddhism. There is disagreement as to whether they should be considered distinct languages, but Ladakhi and Central Tibetan are not mutually intelligible, though they share a written form dating back to Old Tibetan. Ladakhi has approximately 200,000 speakers in India, and perhaps 12,000 speakers in the Tibet region of China, mostly in the Changthang region. Ladakhi has several dialects, Ladakhi proper (also called Lehskat after the capital of Ladakh, Leh, where it is spoken); Shamskat, spoken to the northwest of Leh; Stotskat, spoken to the southeast in the Indus valley; and Nubra, spoken in the north. The varieties spoken in Upper Ladakh and Zangskar have many features of Ladakhi and many other features of western dialects of Central Tibetan.
Most dialects of Ladakhi lack tone, but Stotskat and Upper Ladakhi are tonal like Central Tibetan.

Butter is considered essential to keep the body warm in the cold climate. Gur-gur tea is offered in every house, between intervals at a cultural programme, or during a puja. It is considered an offence not to finish the contents of the cup.
Chang on the other hand, is a kind of beer made from fermented barley, integral to most Buddhist rituals and celebrations. It is much easier to acquire a taste for Chang than Gur-gur chai.
Tsampa, roasted barley flour has been the staple food for centuries. It is used in various forms – as a broth mixed in tea or kneaded with butter, as dumpling wraps in momos, or Thukpa, a soup of vegetables and flour dumplings.
