Cultural Tours Ladakh, Culture Tours Attractions

When it comes to culture, history, heritage, traditions and their reflection in daily lifestyle, of Ladakh is one of the places that offers a rich combination of these. Consequently, a Ladakh cultural tour becomes a pursuit replete with excitement for those who love to explore. Cultural tours in Ladakh are utterly satisfying, for herein lies the way to expand one’s horizons, discover new lifestyles and come up close and personal with a way of life that has remained unchanged for decades. There are various ways in which one can have such experiences. Home stay is one unique option. You can choose to stay with a local family, and participate in their everyday lives: share meals with them, play with the children and even work in farms alongside. A no-frills affair, homestays are a perfect way to peep into a world that remains unseen for most tourists.

Far away from the simple lives of Ladakhis are their lavish and ornate Buddhist monasteries, called Gompas. This is where the spiritual soul of Ladakh lies. The region’s history is etched on its people’s faces, lifestyles, homes, buildings, etc. But it is best seen in the alluring monasteries of which you can find aplenty. Pilgrimages to these holy sites is an age old phenomenon. Inside gompas, one can see decades-old manuscripts wrapped in cloth, which are used till today; beautifully painted idols; impish novice monks; grave but kindly old monks; innumerable khataks that are representative of wishes that people made; offerings in various currencies, and much else.

Try to time your visit around monastery festivals which are high points of the region’s celebrations. Some of the festivals of the larger gompas are world famous. A few examples are Hemis, Lamayuru, Spituk, Alchi, Thiksey, and others. Be sure to check the dates of the festivals as they change according to the Tibetan calendar each year.

With Ladakh being a region where ancient trade caravans once passed through on their way to the teeming markets of Central Asia, you can very well understand and observe the mingling of several faiths and beliefs that have left their mark here. Cultural tours are a perfect way to be a part of this place that has friendly and extremely hospitable inhabitants, ancient traditions, wizened monks, festivals, harvest, and a natural joie-de-vivre.
