We were welcomed by my friend at airport who owns a Guest house in Leh. Junaid Guest house is a nice place to stay in Leh for people travelling on budget. The hosts are welcoming and the place is neat and clean room with Ladakhi style architecture plan was to have rest for 1 day in Leh for acclimatization and arrange our Inner Line permits for visiting Nubra Valley and Pangong lake. We had breakfast and refreshing Kahwa at beautiful Dining area in Guest house.
After having some rest our task was to arrange Inner Line permits (ILP) which are required to visit border areas Nubra Valley, Pangong Lake, Hanle, Tso Moriri Lake. Four of us took some rest as they were awake whole night and two of us decided to search for District collector office for ILP. The documents which are required for ILP are ILP form, any Identity proof and planned dates for visiting border areas. After confirming we have mentioned all areas which we will visit, we took some photocopies of form and our documents and headed over to DC office. The procedure was very much easy and they gave us the Permits with their Stamp. After getting permits we decided to explore Leh town, Shanti Stupa and Leh palace.
