Day 5 :- We booked a sharing cab last night from Leh main market area near by "Leh Jama Masjid" for Pangong Lake which is 140kms from Leh. One can also reach Pangong by rental bike.So we started around morning 8am from Leh for Pangong via Leh-Manali Highway. We reached Changla Pass after 80kms. Changla Pass is the 03rd Highest Motor-able Pass in the World at 17,590 ft. We took some pics and done with our breakfast there at the highest point and again started our journey. We reached Pangong Lake by 13:00pm in the afternoon and we gone straight to the lake which is fully blue in colour due to crystal clear sky reflection above it. We took Yak ride over there. Remember that Yellow Scooter of Kareena Kapoor in the movie 3 Idiots with her Red Helmet. Yes it is there and we took many pics of Pangong. 30% of this lake situated in India rest 70% is in China. There are nothing much to see but one if want can do night halt over there but we came back to our Hotel at Leh on the same day near around 20:00pm.Expenditure-Sharing Cab for Pangong - 1700/persons (same day return).Yak Ride - 100/personKareena Kapoor Scooty Ride - 50/personHotel at Leh - 600/room for 02 persons per night

Tip – I forgot to mention in my earlier posts that as far as possible carry change while you visit Ladakh. Especially while commuting it’s very difficult to arrange for change at dhabas, hence make sure to carry more of 100’s and 50’s rather than big currency notes.Right from the time I started planning the trip to the time I reached Leh, one thought that kept racing my mind was that we should be able to cross Khardungla pass without any difficulty. infamous for being unpredictable, catastrophic, the journey from Leh to Nubra via Khardungla was by far the most difficult drive. Horrible road conditions, threat of landslide and bad weather are some of the common experiences while you are on this route. For us fortunately, the journey was smooth both ways and we didn’t experience any major difficulty apart from a rocky-shaky drive. This route is not for the faint hearted as on some of the twists and turns, you are almost driving on the edge of the road.

Weekend Getaways from Leh  

Best time to visit - April,May,June,July,August,September,October
Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.
