“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”
An important city of Ladakh region. This spiritual place will connect you with your inner soul. In the extreme conditions these ladakhi people live where 3/4th time of the year the entire place is covered under snow with temperature even dipping upto -40 degrees, you will really feel that god has given so much to us. Still without questioning anything, with their support and charm, you would definitely feel love for this place. The number of foreign travelers from countries like Israel, Germany would definitely outclass the Indian travelers. Staying here for at least 1 day and getting acclimatized to the natural conditions is a MUST.
Important places to visit:
Leh Market (Moti Market)
Magnetic Hill (30 kms before Leh while coming from Kargil)
Leh to Khardungla ~ 40 Kms
If you think you have driven through worst of roads then reconsider yourself because you are on the way to world’s highest motorable road, Khardungla where you will see the mountains covered with snow and you will drive under the depleted oxygen levels.
Bike check mandatory(Breaks, Air Filter, Tyres)
You might suffer from high altitude sickness as oxygen level is very low. So carry proper medicine
Carry plenty of water and drink regularly to avoid AMS
You are in a zone which is largely affected by UV Rays and radiations. So chances of sun burnt are very high
Where to stay:
There are many good hotels in Leh. So getting accommodation would not be an issue. We stayed at Shanti Guest House
