Ladakh in June 2017

Ladakh is extremely fragile despite the seemingly impenetrable terrain that surrounds it. Like most mountainous tourist towns, Ladakh is welcoming more guests than it can accommodate. It can be contained if both guests and hosts act rather than react to the consequences brought about by tourism inflow.

I would feel irresponsible sharing this Ladakh video without bearing these reminders:

If and when you decide to go to Ladakh – or anywhere – leave no trace. Shun plastic bottled water. Walk where possible. Share transportation. Keep quiet. Forego overly luxurious hotels for family-run and eco lodges. Manage your consumption.

It’s really simple: before walking out the door check if you’re leaving the place better than you found it.
