The high and long stretch of Indian Himalaya comprises the regions of Kashmir, Ladakh, Zanskar, Himachal, Uttrakhand, Sikkim & Arunachal Pradesh. Part of Himalayan range is in Nepal, Bhutan & Tibet as well.
The world’s highest mountains stretch from the 8000-meter massif of Nanga Parbat to Namcha Barwa. This mighty range of mountains, 2500 km long and 350 km wide, is composed of an extensive system of parallel ridges. From the west, the Indian part of Himalayas begins with the charming Kashmir Valley – the paradise on earth. From the foot of the rocky mountains and magnificent glaciers extend green meadows and apple orchards and in the spring myriads of daffodils, tulips and crocus are in bloom.
The heritage and old traditions are thriving around the beautiful lakes and rivers, dotted with the pleasure gardens laid by the great Mughals and the peaceful medieval shrines and mosques founded by the spiritual Sufis. The British later introduced the concept of houseboats for holidaying in the cool mountain summer and staying on these comfortable floating palaces. Kashmir is famous for its saffron, cuisine and handicrafts.

To the east and south-east of Kashmir, all the way to the north of the main Himalayan chain and in the shadow of the Karakorams, are the magnificent landscapes of desert like Ladakh, Zanskar, Nubra Valley on the old silk route and the Changthang Tibetan plateau with its green oasis of villages along the Indus river Valley and Buddhist Monasteries rising above them. Ladakh and Zanskar offers some of the finest trekking routes in the world during the summer months with an opportunity to witness local Buddhist monastic festivals. Ladakh is famous for its apricots and Thangkas.
To the south of Zanskar lies the state of Himachal Pradesh, a cultural mosaic of various old small former fiefdoms which came into being in valleys separated from each other by mountain ridges. Because of the trails that join the valleys via the mountain passes which were used for trade, Buddhist and Hindu cultures are closely intertwined in many places like Kinnaur, Spiti and Kangra valleys. Himachal is famous for its apples and caps.
