LADAKH

General Information

The largest town in Ladakh is Leh, followed by Kargil, each of which headquarters a district. The Leh district contains the IndusShyok and Nubra river valleys. The Kargil district contains the SuruDras and Zanskar river valleys. The main populated regions are the river valleys, but the mountain slopes also support pastoral Changpa nomads. The main religious groups in the region are Muslims (mainly Shia) (46%), Buddhists (mainly Tibetan Buddhists) (40%), and Hindus (12%) with the remaining 2% made of other religions.[16][17] Ladakh is one of the most sparsely populated regions in India. Its culture and history are closely related to those of Tibet.

Ladakh was established as a union territory of India on 31 October 2019, following the passage of the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act. Prior to that, it was part of the Jammu and Kashmir state. Ladakh is both the largest and the second least populous union territory of India.
