Jispa to Leh
Waking up to foggy mountains is not a routine for a Mumbai-ite like me. The view from the dormer was blissfully peaceful. Birds chirping, the soothing sound of Bhaga river leaves you in a trance like state.
I was enchanted seeing a thick blanket of clouds hovering above two high peak mountains. As we left Padma lodge to hit the onward journey to Leh, little did I know that very soon I will be witnessing exquisite landscape that can blow one’s mind.
We were told by our driver that we will be seeing two tals on the way which are smaller but only in size not in beauty. Deepak tal was the first small water body that we saw with emerald green water surrounded by snow clad mountains. You then pass by Zing Zing bar which is also called as the peace zone and baralacha before you reach Sarchu.
