Ladakh is already on the must-see destination list for people during the summer holidays. It is full of natural beauty and panoramic views that pull the tourists to it each year. Now, Ladakh is giving you another reason to plan a visit to the place.
India has welcomed its first ice café in Ladakh. This ice café is situated at a height of 14000 ft. and it serves traditional food, noodles and various hot drinks to counter the cold. The ambience is extremely unique and welcoming.
The cafe is basically an artificial glacier and has been constructed by running pipes under the front lines. Making artificial glacier is a popular practice to conserve water in places of high altitude. Ladakh initially suffers from water scarcity during the summers. The water flows through these pipes and is made to fall on the ground in freezing temperatures and leads to ice towers. These towers melt during the spring months and the water is collected in the tanks.
