Restaurant in ladakh

One of the most idyllic destinations in North India, Ladakh is a beautiful highland region between the Karakoram and the Himalayan mountain ranges. Food is a very important part of this region, as it is the case with the other parts of India. Ladakh has a strong Tibetan influence because of its proximity to the country and the several migrants that live here. You will also find a number of restaurants that serve Israeli, Chinese, Kashmiri wazwan, and North Indian food that is cooked with fresh herbs and produce from the highland which tastes amazing at such a high altitude. Since Ladakh is a barren land, most of the ingredients and produce used to prepare food is sourced from the plains. You will find a warm plate of momos and delicious bowl of thukpa everywhere, whether yo are near the monasteries in Ladakh, or anywhere else.
