panoramic Ladakh

There are many flights that reach Leh like go air and vistara. But all the flights are in the morning and go via Delhi. The flights are in the morning because the temperature goes in minus in the night and as it is a hilly region, it is very difficult to land. Due to high altitude, there is a risk of Acute mountain sickness. So it is recommended that we carry a oxygen meter and certain Tablets. If you like beautiful scenery, Leh is the place for you. There are quite a few hotels in Leh Like Grand dragon which is highly recommended it provides taxi services with spacious rooms. There is an oxygen cylinder in case of Acute mountain sickness. In every taxi, there is a oxygen cylinder. Then we went from Leh to nubra valley. On the way we get the mighty Khardungla pass which is the highest motor-able road in the world. We saw snow because we went there in the start of winter that is why we saw fresh snow. There is snow in Khardungla pass year round due to high altitude but other than winter we can not see fresh snow. There are mostly camps in Nubra valley as it is a remote area. One of them is Ecolodge. Which is quite a big camp where we are away from the world and we get to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the natural world. There are only two options of rooms there. A Safari tent and a Himalayan cottage. we were in a Himalayan cottage which is a type of cottage with electricity only from 7:00pm-11:00pm. The food of Ecolodge is very tasty with a homely touch but the quantity is a lot. In Nubra valley we visited Hall of fame which is quite big with all the geography of Ladakh Along with the Martyres of Ashok mahavir and param vir chakra and all the weapons that were captured and also a light and sound show which is at night and shows how the Kargil war was fought along with an Adventure park for kids. We also saw the beautiful Sangam where two rivers Indus and Zanskar meet. There is a lot of scenic beauty around it with the beautiful snow-capped mountains. On the way we got Magnetic hill. In which army research says that the vehicle gets pulled very slowly but we saw nothing like that. On the way to our camp, We went to the Sri Pathar Sahib Gurudwara where they had just started serving the Langar and the whole temple is operated by the Indian army. Then we went for river rafting which was very fun. As it was winter, the water level in the river had decreased. They give very helpful instructions on how to paddle the raft. .We went to the camel safari. There were huge double humped camels there. Instead of taking us separately, they tied the camels together.Then we got back to our hotel. The next day, we went to Pangong lake which was very panoramic. There were a lot of mountains covered with snow around us. The water in Pangong  lake is very cold as we went in the winter season. There are many cafe’s around the lake. But if you want a night stay, there are only tents available which are a bit away from the lake. On the way back to Leh, We crossed Changla pass which is not a very good road it is the second highest motorable road in the world. We saw snow even there but it was not fresh. When we reached Leh, we again stayed in Grand dragon. Grand dragon’s food was very good especially the quality of  paneer was very good. The next day we were going to checkout. Our overall trip was meritorious and Leh is very nice to visit with family.
