Leh is a fun place to be. Good food, tranquil monasteries and palaces make this town the perfect base to acclimatize before embarking on those eagerly awaited drives to Khardung la or treks to Stok Kangri.
With monasteries such as Tabo and Dhanker, landslide affected roads and 'anthill' landscapes, gear up for some real adventure!
The Satpura National Park is a treasure trove. Located in Madhya Pradesh, it is lesser frequented than Bandhavgarh or Kanha wherein lies its charm. This is the place to be if birding and sloth bears are up there on your list!
The gateway to the Spiti Valley has a unique charm: From non-existent roads and shooting stones to views fit for the heavens; this journey has everything a traveler can wish for!
The journey from Kargil to Leh is a one that you cannot miss, from breathtaking views that the monasteries offer, the Indus and the Zanskar to the humblest of people you are bound to meet; the fine roads ensure that this is an experience like no other!
The drive to Hanle, which boasts the 2nd highest observatory in the world is unlike any other: deserts, green plains, snowy peaks and parts of Pangong you might not have seen.
The Agham-Shyok-Durbuk route is one of the two direct routes from the Nubra Valley to Pangong Tso; taking this lonely route is not for the faint hearted!
For a particularly reserved person like me, the urge to share my experiences wasn't great, so why then; this beginning?
