  Kerala and Ladakh are two places in India that are very different from each other. But they have one thing in common. They were both visited by traders from China and Arab countries long ago.

  • These traders came to Kerala for spices , like pepper and cardamom, that grow well there. They came to Ladakh for wool , which comes from a special goat that lives in the mountains.

  • These traders also brought many things with them, like new plants , buildings , languages , stories , songs and dances .
