Now you gotta be a special person in your heart to 'feel' this place. You can be just another tourist, or you can lose your city soul here to feel 'the purity' of lives lived here. It's a mental thing.

The national park is a unique high altitude national park on Leh-Manali highway houses Hemis Monastery which is a famous place for tourists. The park traverses a large area housing monasteries and snow leopards. There are small villages and very few people living here.
