Once we got the permit we decided to service our bikes. Since we have travelled almost 1300+ kms. It took 2hrs to get serviced. Since we are 7 in numbers. We divided ourself in task. Prashant, Dhirender and khush was buy in servicing the bikes. Rest of the four went to look for the hotel for night stay.
It is highly recommended, one should stay atleast one day to acclimatised the body to such high altitude. Leh is at the height of ~11k feet. Which is great height if you have been living your whole life in plain area. So, we chose to stay at leh for one night.
Since June month is the extreme peak season for the leh-ladakh. Starting hotel prices would be around 4k per room for 2 people. After asking into 4-5 hotels we were just standing besides the road, a lady came to us and asked if we need hotel room for stay. I immediately jumped out the car and went with the lady. She took me through the under constructing building to a home stay hotel. The back was already developed. Rooms were nice. King size bed. Nice washroom. Everything was nice, I immediately asked lady about the price, she said, 2300 INR for 2 rooms. But we got the deal in 2k INR only for 2 rooms for 7 people.
After freshen up we decided to cook pasta rather to go outside and eat. Owner of the hotel asked if they want to eat momos she can cook for us. She explained, people of ladakh call mok-mok rather than momos. Yummy pasta and after that mouth watering mok-mok has made our day.
We all assisted Vishal to cook pasta. It was yummy and we offered to owner of the hotel and his cute little 10 year old child, Tenzin.
