About the event
After centuries of relative isolation, Ladakh was suddenly thrown open to “development” and tourism in the mid-1970s. This brought many changes to the previously peaceful, prosperous and largely self-reliant culture. Along with junk food, plastic waste, toxins and pollution, Ladakh was suddenly confronted with unemployment, homelessness, and religious conflict.
Recognizing that tourism is a powerful agent of change, we make great efforts to reach out to visitors to invite them to participate in solutions at every level: from cultural awareness, to ecologically sensitive behavior, to supporting alternatives both in Ladakh and in their own home communities.
