LEH LADDAKH.. the journey to HEAVEN
« on: September 09, 2014, 09:32:00 AM »


Trip to LEH, I advise all the travelers who are going to LEH via flight please take Diamox 250 mg tablet 12 hours before the journey.
I along with my 6 friends, we boarded GoAir from Delhi to LEH. As soon as I arrived, I could sense the calmness in the air. Oxygen level is quite low in this part of the world so it is advised that you take rest for a complete day and drink at least 4-5 ltrs of water. This gives your body time to acclimatize. From airport, we went to Changspa, the mall road of LEH. This area is flooded with guest houses and travelers from all over the world. If you do not want to spend much on room, I suggest you try OTSAL guest house. Very good rooms with caring owners. We got a room for 2 at Rs 650 per day. I am putting down my itinerary so that it will be easy for others to view:
Day 1: complete rest at LEH
Day 2: We hired bike and went to see nearby areas and monasteries. The route we took:
LEH à Shey à Thicksey à Hemis à Stakna à Matho à LEH
Matho is the must visit.
8751-0

Hi Ashish,
 
I am also planning to visit, early next month. Looking for information on this blog, how you went there, where did you stay what are the places to visit over there. As you just came back from Leh(I guess), I am looking forward to the details.

Day 3: We hired a cab to visit Magnetic Hill and Lamayuru.
Day 4:
LEH à Khardungla à Nubra Valley
You will experience what heaven means when you will see Khardung village and Deskit monastery.
 Day 5:
Nubra Valley à Pangong Lake
During the way, you will cross wari la. I have no second thought in saying that the whole driveway was the best I have seen anything in LEH. This is definitely the must visit.
Day 6:
Pangong à LEH
Day 7
LEH to Tsomoriri
For the photography enthusiasts: On the way, there is a village named Puga Sumdo near to Tsomoriri. Don’t forget to stop by to capture some shots for 
If you want to experience village life I would suggest you to visit Tsomoriri rather than Pangong. The later has been commercialized while in Tsomiriri one can experience the village life. Homestays are available in the villages at the shore of the lake.
Day 8
Tsomoriri à Manali à Gurgaon
I rather not speak on this part. L
