ABSTRACT:
Ladakh is mentioned in the majority of the historical texts that pertain to the Silk Route, and many people saw it as an extension of the route itself. Throughout the millennia, Ladakh played a significant role as a port of entry for the movement of people, goods, and ideas. The city of Leh, which is the capital of Ladakh, used to be a major hub for commerce between South Asia and Central Asia. Because of its location at the crossroads of India and Central Asia, Ladakh was an important region in the history of politics, commerce, and culture throughout both the ancient and medieval eras. Ladakh became the transit port in the bilateral Indo-Central Asian commerce as a result of its physical closeness to Central Asia as well as its ties to the historic Silk Route. Along with examining the current geopolitical and geostrategic situation of the area, the purpose of this research is to investigate the historical connections that can be shown between India and Central Asia through Ladakh. In addition, the revitalization of Ladakh's historic trade routes and the advantages that accompany it has also been highlighted.
