The Dalai Lama visits the remote region of Ladakh, on the Chinese border

SRINAGAR, India (AP) — Tibetan Buddhist spiritual leader in exile, the Dalai Lama, has arrived in India’s remote Ladakh region, bordering China, where he received a warm welcome. On Friday, thousands of people lined both sides of the road outside the city of Leh in the cold desert region to welcome the Dalai Lama, who is touring outside his base in the city of Dharmsala , in northern India, for the first time since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. The Dalai Lama has made Dharmsala his headquarters since fleeing Tibet after a failed uprising against rule China in 1959. The visit is also his first after India split off the high-altitude region of Kashmir and took direct control of it in 2019.
