In the very north of India, beyond the snowy passes of the Great Himalayan range, is the mystical region of Ladakh. ‘Ladakh’ translates as ‘the land of high passes’.
It is an autonomous region, unlike any other region in India. Ladakh is dominant by Buddhism… and mountains. The endless mountain ranges and valleys of Ladakh are home to monasteries, stupas and shrines of Buddhism.
The Leh-Ladakh road is a journey through the artistic palette of God Himself. The shadows from the mountain sun create a unique effect. The sky is crystal clear and so bright-blue that it looks unearthly beautiful. The mountain slopes continuously change colours: from yellow to lilac, brown, grey, pink and purple. Similar to the paintings of Nicholas Roerich. The artist did not exaggerate the beauty of the Himalayas.
‘Ladakh is especially significant,’ he wrote in the Trans-Himalayan expedition, ‘where Christ once walked, where Buddha preached, where ruins stand steeped in a heroic past, and where monasteries guard valuable relics…’
