Not seen in Jharkhand in Ladakh, I did not see anything. Kadrat has lavished so much beauty in this place that no time in the eyes The name of Zanskar Valley lies in the name of a mountain range here. This mountain Mala connects Ladakh with Jammu and Kashmir. Some part of it separates Kinnaur and Spiti from Himachal. It is also considered the highest mountain range in Himachal. Zanskar falls under the Valley tahsil. Where Zanskar is connected to Kargil by road, he can cross the Singoli Pass from the Tracking Route and reach Jhanskar even from Himachal. It is not easy to reach here but by looking at these amazing views by crossing the difficulties of the road, you will realize that the difficulties of the path are nothing. For this beautiful view. You will forget all the tiredness in a moment. Seeing nature in such a broad form is an experience that can not be described in words.
Some very exciting tracks
The clutter track is one of the world's exciting thrill tracks. Tracking in the queue on the white sheet of the Zanskar river, which was frozen in winter, is like a dream for adventure lovers. At the same time, the advent of river rastering in the Zanskar river in the summer season is also amazing.
This valley is like paradise for the lovers of the Himalaya trekking trends. Here are many exciting tracks like Baby track, Tangyar track, Kanji - Daracha track, Saruchu Padum track, Kanji Jangla track and Lamayuru Padum track etc. Some of these tracks are one month old.
The journey is not incomplete without the pangong lake
3 Idiot's famous pangong lake is not seen, it seems that the trip to Ladakh is incomplete. Built on a hill of 14270 feet, this superficial lake is famous for its blue water all over the world. 60 percent of Pangong lake is in China and only 40 percent in India. This lake is spread over five kilometers. The water of this lake is very saline, yet in winter the entire lake gets accumulated. It takes approximately five to six hours to reach Pangong from Leh. This road is full of gorgeous and adventures. There are many Ladkakhi villages in this path, and with the help of the snow-covered good pass, which is 17,590 feet high. It's a dangerous and risky pass. It is said that reaching nearby peak should not exceed 15-20 minutes. Due to the lack of oxygen there often the people of the area begin to feel uneasy.
The village of the people of the army of Alexander the Great is alive here today. It is called Pure Aryan. But you will not believe until you see them. This village is special in many years. Go to Ladakh, then go here. Aryan Village extends to the Batalik near India's Pakistan border. It is located approximately 65 kilometers from Kargil. The villages of Aryans are found around the Indus river. They do not have to give proof of their being Aryan. Apart from the people of other Ladakhi villages settled around these villages, these people are able to see Aryan only. Long thick stick, high chickbone, blue blue eyes and blond hair.
Even today, if you wear new fashion clothes, but in their festivals, you can see them in their traditional costumes. Due to nature's nature, natural objects are very important in their life. This makes vegetarian meals daily in Mirah. Only on a special occasion when they offer a goat's sacrificial offering to their favored deities, then they consume masahar. Their women are very beautiful. Due to desertification along the Indus river, these people cultivate despite the desert terrain. And the mother of many civilizations, with the boon of the historic Indus river, find two crops in this year.
Gurudwara stone sahib
Although Leh Ladakh has saved the common heritage of many religions, such as Buddhists, Muslims and Hindus, besides this there is also an important monument associated with Sikhism. Gurudwara stone Saheb is 25 kms away from Leh, an important site of Sikh community built at an altitude of 12000 ft. It is said that Guru Nanak Dev Ji had come here during his visit to Tibet in 1517.
Ladakhi khokh khok
Where one is present at the Buddhist Festival, you get a chance to be impressed with the cultural traditions here, while there is a chance to taste the traditional food of Ladakh. Momo, Thuppa and a special kind of liquor that these people prepare themselves. Taste the butter tea here. Bagkadka is eaten specifically in Ladakhaki food. To avoid colds, noodles, vegetables, and meat pieces are cooked together, and it is served with the local bread, which is called yeast. Thupka will be found in the smallest shop in Ladakh. Mokthuk is another dish here, which Ladkakhi people eat with big fan. In this dish, Momos is cooked with soup and hot hot is served. Chang is the indigenous liquor here, which Ladakhi people prepare themselves. It is a lightweight addiction. When these people go to work in the fields, they carry the chhangha, which they keep warm by drinking them and also gives the power of handing two two hands in the cold weather of Ladakh.
Modern house of Ladakh
If you have learned the art of living life, then learn from these Ladakhis. Its won Examples are their home The center of the house of Ladakhi families is their kitchen. This is the place where people spend most of the time. When the white sheet of Ladakh ice is covered under a few months of the year, then this is the place from where the whole family receives energy. Ladakhi kitchen has been modern since centuries. I got a chance to see 600 years old kitchen here. This kitchen had a modular cooking top made of granite, which had four burners and had a baking arrangement below. The cooking stove attached to the fireplace was run by the woods. It was very surprising to me that in the Ladkakhi society, today 600 years ago, there was such a modern system. Their home walls are also about to beat the modern insulin system. The walls that are visible from the outside of the soil are almost two feet wide, which are made from straw, hail and soil layers in such a way that even when the mercury minus 20 or 40 goes, then the heat remains intact within the house.
Shopping-Old Town Market
There is a small but all-purpose market for shopping in Ladakh, which is called Old Town Market. From here you can do shopping for Sovaniyas associated with Buddhism, as well as take the equipment and accessories used in tracking. Because of China's border near here, China's good things are found here. For women it is a good place to shop.
To be beautiful with the best views of the country and the world, remain same with me.
Will meet again on any other trip
