The way back started at about 11 am and the target destination for the day was Sarchu.
On the way back, at Taglang La, we met two 63 year young people who came in a rented car.
I was awestruck by their energy at this age and it again underlined that age is just a number!!
Again our plans went awry as we reached Pang only by 5.30 pm.
Hence we decided to stay at a tea house there.
I enquired the shop owner about their lives and he told me that his home is at Leh and they stay here until the Manali-Leh highway is closed, that is they stay here for about six months and the rest at their home in Leh.
During their stay at Leh, they don't have any work as it is winter and it would be snow everywhere. Hence the earnings they make in the other six months is their way ahead for the living in Leh.
