The landscape of Ladakh, a high altitude desert, is defined by craggy, barren cliffs and plateaus. Ladakh is a land of snow carved peaks, translucent Lakes, barren terrain and mystic culture. People of Ladakh are mostly Mahayana Buddhists belonging to the sect of the Red or Yellow Lamas. The faces and physique of the Ladakhis, and the clothes they wear, are more akin to those of Tibet and Central Asia than of India.
Ladakh lies at the border with Tibet , bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram. Ladakh is a mysterious land shrouded in myths and legends. Much of its ancient history is known only through the mythology of its people as its written history is of very recent origin. Known for centuries as the 'land of passes' (La-pass; Dakh-land), Ladakh was described by Fa-hian, who travelled across its inhospitable terrain in 399 A.D., as 'The land where snow never melts and only corn ripens'.
