WION Traveller: An epic adventure of Ladakh - Part 3

Aug 15, 2019, 04.45 PM (IST)

The episode's tagline is 'There's no place like Ladakh'. Ladakh is a newly minted Union territory, and this episode of Traveller focuses on Ladakh's allure as a destination, and the elements that make it unique. While Meraj sets out on an epic road journey from New Delhi to Leh, Johan chooses to take the picturesque flight. Once they arrive, they explore the markets, walk in the Old Town, visit the donkey sanctuary, meet the local ‘medicine man’, and undertake a short ride to the Chemrey Gompa, a Buddhist monastery built-in 1664. It concludes with the Aryan Festival that shows the diversity, and for lack of a better word, exotic nature of the region.
