The sparse region of Ladakh officially became a union territory administered by the government of India at the beginning of this month. Despite the tension, I still think it's a good idea to visit Ladakh on this occasion

There are assessments that note that the risk in Ladakh is way more elevated now than it has been at any point in prior years. And tourists that go to Ladakh -- even those that want to spend time in the more sparse regions of Ladakh, still tend to mainly hit a few of the same spots during the trip, spots all of which are now more in the sight of increasingly disgruntled locals -- be they Ladakhi Buddhists, Kargil Shias or otherwise -- and foreign elements too.

As much as I like Ladakh and had been telling people it was fine to visit for many years, that is not the case at this time and won't be next year either. The now-former state's areas made into union territories are all hot spots in one or more ways and at a much worse security risk level now than they were a few years ago.
