Destinations Undefined : Route 1: Traveled like never before Incredible Ladakh
#Tripoto #MumbaiHights #DestinationsUndefined says that "The Almighty has listen to all those prayers" and the gentle shower of rain is gradually coming our way :) .....with the pleasant atmosphere around while listing to#TereBin from #Wazir and sipping a cup of tea at my terrace garden ....i remember all my #TravelDairies and hear i am going to shear my experience during #KhardunglaPass #Diskit #NubraValley #Hunder#Panamik and #SamtanlingMonastery ...an incredible route to travel for the first time...this route is recommended for at least 02 days....our travel started with a bright sunny morning an amazing driver of#TOYOTAINNOVA accompanied by the dear husband Ravindra Kumar...with some bare minimum essentials (Water/Cup-Noddles/strong Woolens and some candies) that everyone is suppose to carry to take a better care of themselves.....driving down the valleys wild we came across river #Indus...where.... with the opening of the tourist season ....... people were setting up their temporary tent-houses alongside Indus to attract the tourist...most of the area is under Indian army and mostly these are great people manning and managing the show....crossing the smooth #BRO roads we reached #SouthPullu and took a tea break ....had the most delicious#Momos (made of local spinach..because there is hardly anything to grow) with #HoneyGingerLemonTea .....and got to know the fact that south pullu is the first point in this route where the actual acclimatization starts....and will take you till the height of #18380feetAboveTheSeaLevel and "not beyond" because the #HighestMotorableRoad in the world ends there and that place is called #Khardungla .....these small things at times.....for a person like me.....make the journeys even more interesting.... the direction of NorthPullu onward is actually towards North-East of Leh....and the distance of #NubraValley is around 150Km from Leh. .......going ahead alongside the road i saw some small capillaries of water bodies were joining in the middle of #colddesert where people were busy clicking their pictures ....my inquisitive mind asked the driver about that......and humble driver in his response told me that its " Shyok River" meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges.its basically a subsidiary of River Indus......and than a long stretch of Ice-Covered Mountain ranges ...super narrow roads and we reached the great Khardungla Pass....at a height of 18,380 feet above the sea level.....it felt actually "on the top of the world"...... a superchill feel when at the temp of -30 degrees you face a snow-fall ...........your hand are immediately frozen soon after coming out of the car ...eyelets have a layer of fresh ice..roads become slippery ..and a huge absolutely fresh mountain develops just in front of the "loo"...... while you are so desperate to go there.........
