I love travelling and visiting unexplored places. Today, I’m going to talk about a place that is not visited by many tourists.
The name of the place is Ladakh which means land of high passes. It’s a mountainous region in Jammu and Kashmir State of India. I went to Ladakh last year with my friends.
Ladakh has a lot to offer to its tourists. It’s known for its unparalleled beauty. Arid mountains, exotic lakes and mighty rives can leave visitors mesmerized. We stayed there for a week and every day was packed with lots of activities. My friends and I did rafting in the Indus River. We tried mountain climbing too but found it quite challenging. We visited some monasteries as well. Overall, the whole stay became a memorable experience for all of us.
Even though Ladakh is a marvellous place to visit, sadly, the number of tourists is quite low. The main region behind this is its location. Jammu and Kashmir is a disputed state which is terribly affected by terrorism and other host of problems. Safety becomes a major issue for visitors. Only adventurous and thrill seekers dare to go there. Another key reason is that the government doesn’t promote tourism in this area. People have to pay a lot of money for accommodation and other facilities. All these factors certainly affect people’s decision when it comes to visiting a new place.
