Leh Ladakh Trip
Ladakh is ruled by only one force, that’s purely NATURE. The region is straight out of a folk or fairy tale with such a scenic view. The landscape is dotted with small stupas built by locals, blue azure lakes, deserts flanked by rugged mountains and much more.
These mountain ranges are going to be the rigid companions through most of the trip. One would feel small and intimidating as Lilliput in the land of giant mountains.The occupancy at Leh Ladakh is a setting defended with the blue-white skies, blue-green highlands and seren snow-white ends with the relaxed blue water of the lake and luxurious green grass. It’s truly a mesmerising experience to float through the trails of Leh Ladakh via road relishing the moments, scenery and beauty. This place is called “the roof-top of the world” as with the reference of its high altitude and location at peak with such a breathtaking panoramic vibe and views.
The vertical lands bunked with snow mirrored the divine skies, loud tributaries stream from side to side to these alps creating an extremely attractive mixture of vision and echoes. Each and every thing around existed an echo point. Scream, pour your heart out and sense the magic to hear the echo echoing from the peaks back to you. It was really worth enjoying the beauty of nature by being on top of the world. It is only in Ladakh one can undergo sunstroke and frostbite at the same time.
