“The land of high passes”, placed bang on the Himalayas- Ladhakh and its scenic wonders. I have been looking forward to this trip for the past few months, and finally, I’m off today!
Known for its alternate dry and green landscapes, and of course, its passes, glaciers and snow capped mountains, it is said to be a piece of heaven on earth. Driving on the highest motor able road in the world- the Khardhungla pass, camping beside the highest fresh water lake in the world-Tso Pangong, the Magnetic hill and the various monasteries, are some of the highlights of this trip. But the thing that I am really looking forward to in this trip, is the snow- that frozen form of water that I have wanted to touch and feel all my life.
Being allergic to cold, I have packed all the jackets and sweaters I own, and a lot of other stuff too, to cover various parts of my body. I will be off-grid for the next ten days, and to cap it all, I have my university course registration bang in the middle! There has also been a landslide in that area recently, leaving almost 400 people stranded. Well, all I can do is keep my fingers crossed.
It definitely sounds like a great trip, and I hope it turns out to be one too! Adios!
