Ladakh is one of the most rugged, elevated and driest regions in the world. Yet, its high mountains shelter a rich and vivid archaeological heritage: its valleys are scattered with fortresses built on top of steep reliefs, with temple ruins at the verge of fertile oases, with ancient cultic sites on desertic plateaux, etc.

These mountains peaks have since times immemorial represented fantastic corridors travelled by merchants and armies from varied origins.

It is this rich and little known history that you will discover through a visual panorama of the remains of Ladakh.
