0830hrs Morning duties completed, both wife and I were packed to get the hell out of this hotel. As we waited for our vehicle to arrive, we decided to have some breakfast. Egg Paratha rolls, coffee, toast butter, jam. The rest looked inedible. At 9 am sharp, Mr Haq showed up along with Arjun, our driver for the next 3 days. Bill paid, travel permit forms filled, statutory safety briefing by Haq heard, we were on our way, to cover some 125 km of adventurous terrain from Leh to Hunder in the Nubra valley. At Rs 6,000 per night Half board, I could not really complain, as hotels function for only 180 days.
