Summer Vacation in Ladakh, Pangong Lake, Nubra Valley, And Many More
Summer Vacation in Ladakh, Pangong Lake, Nubra Valley, And Many More: Hello World, I’m in Ladakh right now and I’m making this six-day trip to Ladakh.
- Distance From Kharagpur to Ladakh Is Approx. 2,485 Km Via Leh-Manali Highway
- Google Map: Ladakh
And the season for this trip is from May to September. So, I think that I’m here at the best time. Let’s see, how do I spend these six days? I know it is going to be a great, great feel-good trip for me. Let’s see…
Shanti Stupa and the Leh Palace
Day 1, was slow, mainly for resting and acclimatization, and visiting Shanti Stupa and the Leh Palace in Leh. And after that, we went to Leh market. The famous Leh market. You can do a lot of shopping here, right from Pashmina, junk jewelry, and Tibetan stuff and I have heard that we can get amazing nature lip balm here. I think I should just go and hunt for that lip balm and found it finally. I have got an organic lip balm in a small shop called Dzomsa, it is all pure organic stuff and this particular lip balm is made with Apricot oil and b wax.
Zanskar and Gurdwara Pathar Sahib.
Day 2, was also meant to be slow for getting used to the high altitude and low oxygen. So went to see the river Zanskar in Leh itself. Here it is called the Sangam and here the river Indus and another local river confluence both have completely different water and the water doesn’t seem to mix with each other and also, the world’s highest rafting point. And on the way back we ate at Gurdwara Pathar Sahib. And today begins the six-hour journey from Leh to Nubra valley via Khardungla pass.
Hey guys, I’m at Khardungla pass, it is 18000 ft above sea level. This place is the world’s highest motorable point. The kids here are as lovely and beautiful as this place. And their smile. I’m still in Ladakh can you believe this. I’m in Nubra valley right now and this is the desert area here. So the famous double hump camel of Nubra valley.
I’m very much enjoying this ride right now. Friends, I am at the Diskit Monastery. And the buddha you saw, is called the future buddha. And this place is really peaceful and divine. This is like a 14th-century old place. After Diskit Monastery in Nubra valley, we began our journey back to Leh. Which was full of adventures. Guys, what we found here is a lovely Ladakhki sheep. The fur from we get pashmina. From desert to a frozen lake! This is too good. It’s super awesome. After this fantastic journey, we reached our hotel in Leh just in time, for some yummy dinner.
On day 3, a new journey begins to Pangong lake from Leh. I am at Chang La Passen route Pangong lake. This place is the world’s 2nd highest motorable point after Khardungla. This is 17,688 ft above sea level. It’s too cold here, but I’m having great fun. It’s the 2nd highest motorable road I think everything in Ladakh is the world’s highest. World’s highest rafting point, and world’s highest motorable road. I can’t get enough of this place, seriously. After a 5-hour-long journey from Leh, finally, we arrived at Pangong. And look at where we’re staying we are staying in a tent or a camp right in front of Pangong. Do you know it changes colors five times a day? It is so beautiful, divine, and pristine.
I can’t tell you what I’m feeling right now that you can feel only after coming here. And after 30-40 km this lake flows into China. It sounds so exotic to me. Do you know, the place where I am right now is the same spot where the climax of the 3 Idiots was shot. And can you see the lake behind me? I can see four colours. I have travelled a lot in my life, but I haven’t seen this kind of scenery, I swear. And now the final journey back to Leh. Another very very important thing while coming to Ladakh people think that they might not get much to eat, but surprisingly it’s a delight for vegetarians, everywhere you’ll get locally made dal and rice, momos, and our all-time favourite Maggi, you will get it everywhere. So there is no worry about food here. And now I can’t wait to get back to Leh and visit our final destination the Hall of Fame. Giving a tribute to the Indian Army.
Hall of Fame
This is the Hall of Fame. And while standing here I want to give a huge salute to my Indian Army. At such a high altitude, in such extreme weather they protect our country, they protect our border sit’s simply amazing. Well, that’s all from LadakhI love you all, take care.
