Culture of Ladakh is a mix of both Indian as well as Tibetan tradition

The history of a place is the story of such generations that settled down in different places and enrich the culture and traditions.

Similarly, the climate of a place also gives rise to diversity. Climate influences clothing, food, dances, music and other aspects of human cultural life.

Diversity is the range of many people or things that are very different from each other.

Diversity in India has given us a rich taste of life. Our languages, monuments, dresses and way of life clearly show a mixture of influences.

The Culture of Ladakh

Ladakh is a cold desert. It is lies in the mountains in the eastern part of Jammu and Kashmir. There is no rainfall. Such forsake conditions don't permit horticulture, however a couple trees can develop in this cool desert. Individuals rely on upon the liquefying snow amid the late spring months for drinking water.

The life of the people is difficult. Wheat and barely are the main crops grown here. Apricots are also grown and exported. People mainly depend on sheep, goat, cow and yak rearing. The sheep in this region are special because they produce pashmina wool. Pashmina shawls are made from it .

The wool from the sheep is collected by the people and sold to the Kashmiri traders. The Ladakh region has many passes through which caravans travel to Tibet. These caravans carry textiles, spices, raw silk and carpets.

The culture of Ladakh is a mix of both Indian as as well as Tibetan tradition. Tibetan influence is visible in food, music and architecture. Therefore, `Little Tibet' is another name for Ladakh.

Buddhism is the boss religion of the state. Buddhism achieved Tibet by means of Ladakh. It has various Gompas or Buddhist religious communities. Ladakh has an exceptionally rich oral custom of melodies and sonnets. The Tibetan national epic the Kesar Saga' is performed and sung by both Muslims and Buddhists.
