Dharamsala -- Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai
Lama will visit forward areas of Ladakh in
bordering Tibet this week for delivering religious discourses.

The Centre recently gave a nod for the trip but
asked him to exercise restraint in making
"observations about China" so that Sino-Indian relations are not affected.

The Dalai Lama will also visit a Buddhist
monastery located at an altitude of 10,315 feet
and other monasteries in Ladakh's Nubra valley.

"The Dalai Lama will stay at Nubra valley in
Kargil for a week from July 21 where he will
bless his followers and attend religious
functions at different monasteries," Tenzin
Taklha, joint secretary at the Dalai Lama's office, said.

The trip will be the Dalai Lama's second visit to
Jammu and Kashmir in less than a month. The
Tibetan spiritual head had visited Gulabgarh, the
only Buddhist dominated town in the Jammu region, earlier this month.

He will also visit the Khardung La (18,380 feet),
one of the highest motorable roads in the world.
