Given its potential to provide a significant amount of cash and job opportunities, tourism has gained widespread recognition as a significant business in the district. The socioeconomic environment of the district is directly impacted by this industry. Many people working in adjacent industries like transportation, lodging and catering, cottage industry, etc., find work in the tourism business. The rural communities’ economies are boosted by tourism.
Since it first opened to tourists in 1974, Leh has seen an increase in the number of travelers drawn to it by its scenery, culture, traditional surroundings, etc. It also still has a lot of room for adventurous travel.
10 days / from INR 10000
Leh is well-known among travellers worldwide and receives a significant influx of visitors from both domestic and foreign countries. Therefore, tourism serves as the region’s economic foundation. Because of this, there are many hotels, guest homes, and taxis in Leh. Leh has 250 hotels and guesthouses of all kinds.
Among the most visited monasteries in Ladakh, Hemis, Alchi, Lamayuru, Shey, and Thiksay draw both domestic and foreign tourists. The world’s highest motorable road, Khardongla (18350 feet), and Pangong Lake (half of which is in China) are the primary draws for local tourists, although monasteries and mountains are more appealing to foreign visitors.
The Ministry of Home Affairs of the Indian government recently designated further Ladakh regions open to foreign tourism. These regions are among Himalayan Panorama’s standout features. It may become yet another travel destination for people throughout the world. These regions are more distinctive in terms of adventure and cultural tourism. However, the Indian government limited traffic flow on seven distinct tour circuits to the newly-declared Khaltse, Nubra, and Nyoma Sub-Divisions. The minimum amount of time needed to visit these places shouldn’t be less than seven days. These circuits are sketched and individually discussed here in order to make them easier to grasp.
Khaltse Sub-Division (Drokhpa Area):
And vice versa, Khaltsi-Dumkhar-Skurbuchan-Hanudo-Bima-Dha-Garkon-Batalik-Silmo-Kargil.
The Tour Circuits have identified the Drogpa regions. Foreign visitors are welcome to visit any of India’s five Drogpa villages. The villages of Dha Biama, Darchigs, Garkon, and Batalik—completely occupied by the last remaining Dards in the District—are the primary draws in these locations. The Dards are said to be the final Aryan group to remain in the Indus Valley. These towns are very significant in anthropology and ethnography. The most well-known event in this region is Chhopo sRubla, or harvest festivities. The Drogpa year, when everyone from these villages comes out to celebrate the festivities dressed in their vibrant traditional attire, is regarded as one of the rarest and most exciting times of the year.
Changthang (Nyoma Division):
Tourists must only follow the designated tour circuits; this is a requirement on the part of tour operators and other organisations involved in the organised trip. They must scrupulously abide by the government-mandated dos and don’ts. In terms of scenic beauty, brackish lakes, and wildlife, the highland plateaus of Changthang in the Nyoma Sub-Division may be the most alluring places in the District. The expansive meadows with their calmly running streams and lakes surrounded by brilliantly coloured mountains are unlike anything a visitor would see anywhere in India.
This lake is located 150 kilometres over Changla Pass from Leh at an elevation of 14,100 feet in the Eastern part of Ladakh (17,000ft.). One of the biggest and most exquisite naturally occurring brackish lakes in the nation is this one.
This lake is located in the southernmost region of Ladakh at a height of 15,000 feet above sea level, 240 kilometres from Leh. It has significant mineral reserves and is fashioned like a pearl. The settlement of Korzok is located on the lake’s south-western shore. The most notable aspects of this region are Korzok Gonpa and its nomadic residents.
The highest motorable route in Nubra, the Khardongla pass (18,380 feet), as well as the beautiful peaks, glaciers, and charming valleys and settlements, are its main draws. Tourists may also enjoy sunbathing in the sand dunes at Hunder, river rafting, exploring Diskit and Samstanling Gonpa, Panamik Hot Springs, double-humped camel safaris, and trekking. The valley of orchards and flowers, or Ldumra, is the most common name for this region. It is located in the northern Himalayas, between the Karakoram and Ladakh mountains. The average elevation of Nubra is around 10,000 feet above sea level. The region’s climate is mild, the soil is very fertile, and the vegetation is comparatively denser than in other parts of Ladakh.
