Manali and Ladakh are both famous tourist spots in India. Nestled in the lap of the Great Himalayas, both the regions are much similar in atmosphere and scenery, the only difference being Ladakh is far more sparsely populated than Manali. Ladakh is adorned with remote mountain beauty, sparse yet mesmerizing meadows, quaint rivers, exotic lakes, and challenging high altitudes.
The last feature, usually, proves to be a hindrance for people. They who are not accustomed to heights are advised to take it slow when in Ladakh. People are prone to AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) when in the region but this is usually not the case with people of Manali as high altitude and low temperatures are something they are used to. Hence, for the people of Manali, Ladakh is both exotic and familiar.
