1) THINGS TO KNOW WHILE COMING TO LADAKH:
Before leaving read about Ladakh on our website and get an idea of the terrain, culture and the ecology of Ladakh. You are starting off well.
Try learning some simple pleasantries, it will help in opening conversations and your interest in the place will only bring more smiles.
We highly recommend DZOMSA centers in Ladakh for laundry, water refill, battery disposal and locally produced goods.
Support locally owned businesses, hotels, restaurants and other services.
Just save water as and when you can.
Shop from traditional artisans and for locally made products, helping keep traditional crafts alive and favour local products over imported items. Bargain if that is a local practice, but bear in mind that a small amount to you could be extremely important to the seller.
Dress respectfully with an awareness of local standards. Dress modestly at religious sites and check what swimwear is suitable for pools and the beach.
Always ask first before photographing or videoing people. Send them back copies of photos to help make it a two-way exchange.
Spread the smile with everyone you know will be visiting Ladakh soon.
