Ladakh officially lies in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, but is very different from them in one simple respect: the majority of the people in Jammu and Kashmir are Muslim, and the Ladakhis are principally Tibetan Buddhist.
Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist ex-kingdom. Picture-perfect gompas (Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crown rocky outcrops next to fluttering prayer flags and whitewashed stupas, while prayer wheels spun clockwise release merit-making mantras. Gompa interiors are a riot of golden Buddhas and intricately colourful murals and home to red-robed monks. It's a little corner of Tibet marooned in the furthest reaches of India.
