One thing comes in my mind every time that I should write about good memories, Experiences, adventures of my life. I could not write earlier about Ladakh but yes now I am available. So here I am with my new travel experience of Ladakh " The land of Lamas". We had a morning flight from Delhi to Leh. 5 friends with different nature, Mood, Passion, beliefs but with same zeal to visit The land of Lamas. So after 1 hours 15 Minutes air journey we reached at Leh Airport. And believe me the sceneries we have seen during Flight those were Amazing. We took Local vehicle to reach our Hotel. We checked in and took some rest over there. I suggest to take rest for whole day on the day of arrival for acclimatization. We all are travel professional and visited so many destinations so we just took rest for two or three hours maximum and then started to explore the City of Leh. On day one our first destination was Old leh palace by car which is one of the famous tourist attraction in Leh. It is very old palace. Later we moved to Shanti Stupa. I found a peace what exactly I was thinking that time. We all spent our evening time at Shanti Stupa. So we covered two destination on day one. On day two we started our road trip by Bullets. You find bullets easily over there in Good prices. Day two, That was the moment when I saw, I can say, the range of "Happiness mountains". What exactly the Happiness???? Yes, When you forget about everything and feel the moments. We started to visit nearby places from Leh city center. First we moved towards Alchi Monastery. On the way we found beautiful views which takes you to the another world. First places on the way was Pathar sahib. After visiting Pathar sahib we reached to Magnetic Hill after few kms bike ride. After that we reached to Alchi Monastery spent some time there. Our next destinations were Likir, Spituk and then Thiksey Monastery. Came back to the hotel and overnight stay there. Day three, It's time for Nubra valley which is around 140 km drive from Leh city. After breakfast we were ready to ride for Nubra Valley. We started our trip with three bullets. After asking too many people there then finally we found the way to Nubra. Day 3 experience was unforgettable because we ride bullet one of the toughest road for bike riders in the world. First we reached at South Pullu and we faced that Dangerous road but we were excited because we would be going through the world's highest pass which Khardunga la. After a very dangerous ride we reached at pass. It was very cold and faced oxygen problem as we were at very high altitude. We had tea and coffee there and warm up our body to continued. Took photograph over there to capture the memories. And here we again started riding our bullets and drive towards Nubra. Now we reached at North Pullu, had a Momos and Thukpa (Local Cuisines) then again started for Nubra. On a way we faced problem with  bullet and asked for local person to help. He checked our vehicle then we reached to Nubra valley. And the place we were supposed to reach was Hunder valley famous for sand dunes and Double humped camel. So we reached stayed at Tents in Hunder village. Next morning on fourth day, We checked out from the hotel and drive to sand dunes to see the beauty of Dessert between mountain area. Enjoyed camel ride and believe me it was very comfortable ride as compare to ride in Rajasthan. After sand dunes we proceed to visit Diskit Monastery and then our way back to Leh. Overnight stayed at Leh City. Day five, It's time to visit famous Pangong lake which most of the people have seen in the movie "Three Idiots". Morning around 6 am we started by car. When we reached at first point from where you can see the view of Lake that time our faces were like someone says "Statue..!!!!!". It was really really amazing experience to see that magical lake. i don' want to describe it's beauty. I just want to say visit and feel the magic of it's color, Feel the moment, Feel the loneliness, feel the peace. Now time to back our way to Leh. Same day we did Pangong but i suggest to stay there for one night. There are so many thing to write for that i need to write a Book. He he.. I have pointed out some part of my Journey of Ladakh. So take my word and visit this place definitely you can tell to your friends, Relatives, Children that you had been to one of the most fascinated destination in this world. Different Culture, Different lifestyle, Different thoughts, Different Language and so many things.

Thank you..............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
