“Life is either daring adventure or nothing at all.” This quote pretty much sums up all the reasons why I love to travel. Nature has always been a motivator for me. It’s a great source of learning new things, a medium to expand imagination and creativity. And undoubtedly travelling is the best way to get closer to the nature.
My Ladakh journey has been one of the most memorable experiences of my life. It has brought me so much and changed the person I am for the better. There is too much to harp on about this memorable journey that I don't really know where to begin with. The magical word “JULLEY”, kind and generous Ladakhi people, picturesque landscapes, mighty mountains, majestic rivers, magnificent monasteries, starry nights....and of course the delicious food! There are so many stories to share.
I was working with White Magic Adventure Travel, a renowned adventure travel company as an intern where I got this opportunity to travel to Ladakh for almost a month. It was a great learning experience for me to work as an assistant trek leader for the first time in Himalayas. I started my solo journey from Delhi. An overnight journey in the HPTDC bus was an adventure in itself. I reached Manali next day, checked into a hotel and booked a shared taxi for Leh. We started our 470km long journey at midnight around two. My co-passengers were from Israel, Maharashtra and Karnataka. We all were excited about this road trip. They were surprised to know that I was travelling solo.
