The picturesque villages of Dah & Hanu are situated 163 km southwest of Leh & Ladakh region of Jammu &Kashmir. It is an important hill station that is surrounded by great HindKush Mountains. Situated on comparatively lower attitudes the Dah & Hanu Hill Stations are little bit warmer than Leh. Living almost in sheer isolation the villages are the best places to spend quite holidays. Te secluded region on the far side of great Indus River represents the glimpses of the life of Drokpa community which is believed to be the last Aryan Race. Both the villages of Dah & Hanu can be accessed only by backbreaking bumpy roads which skirt a sheer cliff face with fiercely flowing river below. It can be visited in two days with nights spent in tents which are a great fun. The major attraction of both Dah & Hanu hill station is trekking.

It is an important hill station in Leh & Ladakh with the major Airport a Leh. The best time to visit this hill station is from October to June.
