We took a direct flight from Delhi to Leh and landed around 8am.. The weather was awesome with bright sun and cold breeze..
We did not book a hotel in advance, so took a pre-paid taxi to Leh main market.
This was when we realized how super friendly people were here.. The taxi driver dropped us to a restaurant where I waited and had breakfast while my husband checked a few hotels around.. This was Gesmo Restaurant on Old fort road.
We later checked in to Hotel Tso Kar, 2 mins away from Gesmo.. We rested for a couple of hours to acclimatize and get ready for the evening.. During this time, we had spoken to a guy who sent a bike on rent to our hotel itself.
People are so good in Leh that they ensure you take only good memories back... Around 3 pm, we has lunch in hotel itself and moved out to get some air and loosen up.. Rode the bike back forth from Sangam(confluence of Indus and Zanskar rivers) stopping at Magnetic Hills, Gurudwara Pathar Sahib and Hall of Fame.
Reached back to Leh by 6 and spent the evening watching mesmerizing sunset at Shanti Stupa..
