Ladakh in India
English: Ladakh (Tibetan script: ལ་དྭགས་; Wylie: la-dwags, Ladakhi: [lad̪ɑks]; Hindi: लद्दाख़, Urdu: لدّاخ; "land of high passes") is a region situated in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir between the Kunlun mountain range in the north and the main Great Himalayas to the south. It is inhabited by people of Indo-Aryan and ethnic Tibetan descent, and is one of the most sparsely populated regions in the area. A majority of Ladakhis are Shia Muslims and the rest are Tibetan Buddhists. Some Ladakhi activists have in recent times called for Ladakh to be constituted as a union territory because of its religious and cultural differences with predominantly Muslim Kashmir. Ladakh has been a focal point of numerous wars between India and Pakistan and the Sino-Indian War of 1962; the Saltoro ridge in the Siachen glacier region is an active military zone even today. Today Ladakh consists of two districts — Kargil and Leh. The largest town in Ladakh is Kargil.
