      "The name Ladakh conjures an image of a land of many passes. It nestles in the trans Himalayan region bordered by Pakistan and Tibet at heights of 2,600 to 7,000m above sea level. Ladakh receives less than 100mm of rainfall in a year and is a high altitude, cold desert region with temperatures dropping to -40 degrees Celsius.

      Home to an estimated 170,000 people who live in remote villages and hamlets, it is completely cut off from the outside world for more than five months in a year. More than half the villages and hamlets are accessible by foot, up to three days walking from the nearest motorable point.

      As other energy forms were unviable, Solar energy was the natural choice, considering that Ladakh is blessed with sunshine for more than 300 days in a year.
