After having a two hours sleep, went for bathing and then head to market. It was a 3 km walk and everything seems fine till then. I had lunch in the market – Thukpa – with some raw vegetables in it and as usual had a less amount of liquids.Roaming around Leh Main Bazar was fun. It was colourful and it made me reliase that next 5-6 days will be fun.
What we enjoyed doing the most in Leh market was to stroll around the narrow lanes; collected souvenirs from the Refugee market; bumped into small bookshops and enjoyed thupka and momos.
We bought few winter wear from the Tibetan Refugee Market and strolled through the bazar streets.
We wanted to carry a part of Ladhak with us back home and immediately the Tibetan Prayer Flag crossed my mind. You get to see them in every nook and corner of Ladhak and they supposedly bring luck when gifted. They come in varying sizes and are available in almost every shop.
You can either go back to Leh for overnight stay or travel towards the famous Pangong Tso for overnight stay from Diskit via Warila (17,428 ft) if the roads going towards the lake are operational. It is recommended to travel on this route via Warila only after first week of July till last of August. There are possibilities that the roads are washed away due to melting snow water or heavy rainfall.
