Leh Ladakh

Leh is a town in the Leh district of the Indian Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir. It was the capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh.

It was an important stopover on trade routes along the Indus Valley between Tibet to the east, Kashmir to the west and also between India and China for centuries.

The old town of Leh was added to the World Monuments Funds list of 100 most endangered sites due to increased rainfall from climate change and other reasons.
