Julay Leh, the traditional Ladakhi greeting, is on the tongues of thousands of visitors who are flocking to Leh to escape the summer heat which is baking the rest of the country this summer season.

Bikers, backpackers and the average holiday makers are experiencing the cold desert region, which is a delight for most of the first timers, as snow covered mountains in May, sprouting greenery and water bodies that change colour in the sunlight is a sight unique to the region.

“All kinds of tourists visit Ladakh to experience a very different kind of landscape, culture, traditions and peaceful surroundings,” Phuntsog Dorjay, a tour guide and travel industry entrepreneur said.

“Over the years Ladakh has gained immense popularity amongst tourists of all age groups, from bikers to backpackers and families on holidays. The destination has something different to offer to everyone.”
