Ladakh “The Broken Moon Land” Popularly known as ʺBroken Moon Landʺ, Ladakh is a land of snow carved peaks, translucent Lakes, barren terrain and mystic culture. The district of Ladakh lies at the border with Tibet at the most eastern corner of the State of Kashmir. Bounded by two of the worldʹs mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, Ladakh is a land like no other. Ladakh is often referred to as the ʺLittle Tibetʺ, or the ʺLast Shangri‐Laʺ. Ladakh is the trans‐Himalayan region, which separates the western Himalayan peaks from the Tibetan plateau. In geological terms, this is a young land, formed only a few million years ago by the buckling and folding of the earthʹs crust as the Indian sub‐continent pushed with irresistible force against the immovable mass of Asia.
