Culture Tour Package Ladakh
Duration - 11 Days
The faces and physique of the Ladakhis, and
the clothes they wear, are more akin to those of Tibet and Central Asia than
of India. The original population may have been Dards, an Indo-Aryan race
from down the Indus. But immigration from Tibet, perhaps a millennium or so
ago, largely overwhelmed the culture of the Dards and obliterated their
racial characteristics. In eastern and central Ladakh, today's population
seems to be mostly of Tibetan origin. Further west, in and around Kargil,
there is much in the people's appearance that suggests a mixed origin.
