The picturesque Dah and Hanu are the villages of the dards of Ladakh district. They are formally Buddhists but they also worship their own Gods. Situated on a comparatively lower altitude, the region is slightly warmer than Leh. This hill station is among the best places to spend quiet vacations. The secluded region on the far side of the great Indus River but attracts tourists interested in visiting the great Hindukush mountains.

While visiting Dha & Hanu, one may have a glimpse of the life of the Drokpa community, believed to be the last Aryan race. The divine and isolated natural beauty is the only attraction at Dah and Hanu. It can be visited in two days with nights spent in tents, which is actually a fun.
