Long time ago, in 1977 and 1978 I made a trip to Ladakh. At that time the region was just opened for tourism. The first trip was organized, the second one I did on my own travelling by public transport and sometimes sleeping in the Buddhist monasteries. It was one of the most special trips I ever made. Ladakh is also called West Tibet, but it is situated in India, high in the Himalaya. The bus trip from Srinigar in Kasjhmir to Leh the capital of Ladakh, was breath taking, because of the altitude but also because roads were not that good..
