“Bhai hum dono na, bike pe Leh chalenge.”
How many times have you fooled yourself with this? A trip to Leh has to be the second most cancelled trip ever (after Goa of course).
So why don’t you, for once, pack your bags, and get Leh’d! Huge arid mountains, white desert, and sky in the hues of blues — your ultimate travel adventure awaits you.
And guess what, we’ve put together a list as to why this is going to be your trip of a lifetime. You’re welcome!
1. You’ll be surrounded with breathtaking scenic beauty
Enclosed between the Himalayan and Karakoram mountain ranges, Leh is blessed to be layered with large crystal blue water bodies. The rugged landscape of snow crested mountain peaks against the deep blue skies will leave you searching for words.There is something about the harsh brown mountains and its valleys that will just make you want to sit back, and tune into nature.
2. Bactrian camel safari
You cannot afford to miss this one. A ride on the double humped Bactrian Camels at the sand dunes of Hunder should definitely be on you to-do list. This is the integral part of the caravans that used to travel on the ancient trade route and you surely wouldn’t want to miss out on such a fun experience. Plus we almost never get to see the double humped camels anywhere else.
3. Try yak cheese special momos
4. You’ll get to attend vibrant and indigenous festivals
5. Ancient Buddhist monasteries and gompas
6. Drive through mountain passes
7. You can spot a snow leopard
There is nothing as breathtaking as looking at a snow leopard (only from a distance!) which can be found in only a few places in the entire world. You can spot the beautiful animal on the snow leopard trek, which is in one of the popular attractions in Ladakh – the Hemis National Park.
