Day 2 :- We took a sharing cab from Kargil Taxi Stand for Leh. We started our journey around 10am in the morning from Kargil and reached Futula Pass (13,478 ft). We reached Lamayuru around 13:00am and we requested our cab driver to stop the cab for 30min as we wanted to visit the famous "Lamayuru Monastery", he asked his other co-passengers and i got really overwhelmed when nobody said NO. We also enjoyed the scenic beauty of "Moonland". Then we again started towards Leh Via Nimmu (Where Zanskar River meets Indus River and flow towards Pakistan). We came to Magnetic Hill where we feel the magnetic phenomena of gravity how without gear our car rotate its wheels...then we passed by the Gurudwara, Hall of Fame (Army Museum) and Leh Airport and entered Leh Taxi Stand. We took a hotel (Namkha Guest House) just near to the Taxi Stand just opposite to it situated Leh Bus stand.Note- Leh main market is 20mins walk from this Taxi / Bus Stand. There are many hotels and guest houses at Leh main market also. Even 100rs/bed was also available. So will suggest d'nt book rooms in advance through online or so.Expenditure -Sharing Taxi for Leh - 900/personHotel at Leh - 600/room for 02 persons per night
We had planned our stay in Drass. Looking at the condition of hotel, we were booked in, we thought of travelling ahead till Srinagar, but Sonam refused as the road was risky. We just entered the hotel room which had broken window panes, shabby beds, dirty toilets and shady environment. But we had to stay as the only better hotel in the town was booked and we had no other option.
