Ladakh, popularly known as ‘Little Tibet’, is a dream come true for any motorcyclist of the world. Ladakh lies at an altitude from 9000 ft to 25170 feet above the sea level. At these heights, you are on the roof of the World. Its a Land of peaceful Buddhist monks, medieval monasteries, Fluttering prayer flags, pretty villages, cold desert, high passes, dramatic mountain scenery & surrounding countryside jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical, Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crown rocky outcrops amid whitewashed stupas and meditational mani walls topped with countless mantra-inscribed pebbles. Colourful fluttering prayer flags spread their spiritual messages metaphorically with the mountain breeze. Prayer wheels spun clockwise release more merit-making mantras. Gompa interiors are colourfully awash with murals and statuary of numerous bodhisattvas. Ladakh’s remarkably well-balanced traditional society has much to teach the West in terms of ecological awareness.
