“The land so barren, mountains so high, that only the worst of our enemies or the best of our friends would want to visit us” goes on old Ladakhi saying.
Spectacularly jagged arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crowned rocky outcrops amid whitewashed stupas and mani walls. Colourful prayer flags fluttering with the mountain breeze share their spiritual messages. Prayer wheels spinning clockwise release more merit-making mantras into the atmosphere. Gompa interiors are colourfully awash with the murals and statuary of countless bodhisattvas.
