Ladakh in winter. An unusual winter getaway
While summer is an obviously good season for tourists to visit Ladakh, winter is a time when you could really get a feel of the culture, when the local population of the place has a lot of time on their hands. It is a time when the winter monastery festivals take place, where an outsider is warmly welcomed. And then if you are a photography buff, you can take beautiful landscape pictures like today’s home page image, without the odd tourist ruining your picture. All this and more, if you are willing to brave the winter temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius and below!
