2015 Kashmir to Ladakh Overland


Ladakh is a region in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir that currently extends from the Kunlun mountain range to the main Great Himalayas to the south, inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and Tibetan descent. It is often referred to as little Tibet because of its historical connection to Lhasa.

Kashmir is the northernmost geographical region of the Indian subcontinent. Until the mid-19th century, the term "Kashmir" denoted only the Kashmir Valley between the Great Himalayas and the Pir Panjal Range. For the last 20 years Kashmir has been largely off limits to tourism.

Despite the high altitudes, rugged conditions and ever changing weather the mountain vistas between Kashmir and Ladakh are spectacular. The road, bordering Pakistan to the North, closes frequently due to snow and poor conditions and is impassible for most of the year. It is one of the highest, often unpaved and one track, roads in the world. It was a thrill to travel on it!
