Hi all

I'll be making my sixth visit to India in mid June and am very excited about visiting Ladakh for the first time

On my visit I'm keen to find an authentic source of the Ayurvedic mineral Shilajit. This potent Ayurvedic tonic is prohibitively expensive over here in the UK and most supplements contain very little purity.

Does anyone know where in Ladakh it's farmed and gathered? I'm very keen to find the direct source of this mineral. Whilst it's a remarkable supplement it's currently costing me over 50 for a small 10gm tub which has to be imported from the US! At the moment it looks like my trip will involve starting in Leh and then travelling North West, perhaps as far as Skardu.

Many thanks in advance

I heard Shilajit collected from Hills and then purifies, which is next to impossible. In India you will find Shilajit from roadside shops to Medical Pharmacy stores in big cities. It is only peace of mind that you buying it from Ladakh or other hill stations. Please check procedure how Shilajit made then try to buy it.
Best Regards,

Skardu is in Pakistan. Which border post will you use to cross?
