Ladakh

Ladakh is the largest district of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir, covering more than half the area of the state (of which it is the eastern part). Nevertheless Ladakh is one of the least populated districts in India. It is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and Tibetan Buddhist culture; it is sometimes called "Little Tibet". The capital is Leh. Recent protests by the people of Ladakh have called to make the Kashmiri district a new Indian union territory because of its difference from predominantly Sunni Islamic Kashmir.
