Whatever the description, Ladakh is one of the most remote regions of India. For the Ladakhis it consists of rugged and inhospitable terrain, tempered only in the depths of the valleys where the minimal rainfall has been diverted along irrigation canals. Here willow trees contrast with the barren mountain escape. These fertile reaches support human habitation, where whitewashed settlements and monasteries perched on top of Sugarloaf Mountains add the essential character to this incredible landscape.
