An unforgettable experience in the mountains

The vast mountains are my place of solitude, a place to experience my inner self. They never fail to surprise me by their sheer magnificence. And if the place is Ladakh, they make a heady cocktail.  Ladakh is a place which never fails to awe its visitors. The colourful mountains make the place even more interesting.    Trekking the Chadar has been perhaps the most unforgettable experience in my life. The Chadar trek is perhaps one of the most alluring treks for all the trekkers. There are more difficult treks than Chadar, but those who did Chadar trek seem...

Visit Ladakh – nothing can substitute the experience

Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a story teller.  – Ibn Batuta   Leh must be visited once in your lifetime! This is something which I have heard about Leh often.

But actually walking over...

Be it the picturesque valleys, the rugged mountains, the azure lakes or the difficult trekking trails, Ladakh seems to have it all to captivate the souls who are always in search of nature’s wonder. During the summers, Ladakh is vibrant with all the colours and sound of life. The same place bears a desolate and bleak look during the winter months. It is almost cut off from the rest of the world during this time and almost all the passes connecting Leh are closed due to heavy snowfall. The...

Entering Leh, The Srinagar-Leh Highway

Ladakh has always been a panacea for travellers. We too wanted to have the taste of trans-Himalayan adventure, get the feel of the cold desert and wander round the mighty monasteries. Having heard much and seen a lot of google images, the blue waters of the Pangong seemed to beckon us; the monasteries called us with all its splendour and mystery.  So when during July 2013, we planned for the Amarnath Yatra, we decided to give Kashmir Valley a miss, and foray into the mighty Ladakh. And the best way to enter Leh is by the Srinagar-Leh Highway. After completion...
