Dark skies, Ladakh

I noticed a fascinating article The Dark Side by David Owen, in New Yorker magazine, which incited me to look for and find the International Dark-Sky Park program. On a related note, see this article by H. T. Goranson. It struck me that Ladakh fits the bill as being a place with an incredibly clear and dark sky. The `Bortle Dark Sky Scale', measures the darkness of the sky but googling didn't yield the value for Ladakh.
