I loves it the best thing was culture, people, calmness, chant of Lord Buddha in the air. Apart from that most important thing was the helpful nature of local people. Leh is heven.

Ladakh is another planet. I have been to quite a places now but Ladakh is stunningly beautiful. Its way beyond comparison and one can't capture the beauty of the most spectacular scenery on earth. If I get a chance, I'd keep going there.
