Releasing the list, Time Patrika said that Ladakh attracts people due to its stunning alpine landscape and Tibetan Buddhist culture. After visiting here once, like to come here many times.
In 2023, India designated its first dark sky reserve in the village of Hanle, about 168 miles southeast of Leh, the capital of Ladakh. The village has about 270 clear nights a year, making it ideal for astronomical splendour.
