We tried on some local foods like Kashmiri kawa (a mix of kawa tea, saffron, cardamom and cinnamon) and Thukpa (Tibetan dish with noodles).
The day two started with going around the places in Leh. Make sure to keep sipping water(we used tang to keep hydrated). The sun rays are harsh at this altitude so carry sunscreen and sunglasses to protect your eyes. The early mornings and evenings are cold so carry along jacket for protection from cold breeze.
Hall of Fame- A place to feel Pride: It is a museum constructed by the Indian Army in memory of the brave Indian soldiers who laid down their lives defending the motherland in the Indo-Pak wars. You can see the memorabilia, eminent defense personalities with biographies, images and weapons used during the Kargil and other key strategic battles fought in Ladakh. And belongings of the enemy soldiers found at war site. All the martyr and the gallantry awards. Also there was a picture of MS Dhoni in army uniform taken during his visit to Leh.
Spituk Gompa: It is at the top of hillock striking a panoramic view of the Indus Valley. Prayer flags flutter all around the place. Gompa also houses a collection of ancient masks, antique arms, and an awe-inspiring image of Mahakaal. The face of the Kali image is kept covered and is revealed only at the annual function at January every year. We sat inside the gompa for a while, you can feel the peace within you.
Magnetic Hill: Defying the law of gravity. It has been noticed that when a vehicle is parked on neutral gear on this metallic road the vehicle slides up-hill.
Gurudwara: Built in the everlasting memory of Shri Guru Nanak Deve Ji the great prophet who sanctified the place by his sacred visit during the year 1517. It is run by Army official.
Confluence of Zanskar and Indus: On way to Sham Valley before Nimu village one can have this magnificent view of two rivers, they have different colors and flow. You can also go rafting here.
