Leh it is! Leh it is! We had been waiting for this day since years. When we could sit comfortably on a chair (not in the car) and appreciate the beauty of the Himalayas. The town is surrounded by snow capped mountains, we could see the shadow of clouds on barren mountains. Ah! I could live in that moment, forever.
We visited the Thiksey monastery early in the morning. It's located on the top of a mountain. Walking 200 meters there really made me question my fitness.
Later , after breakfast, we went to see the Pathar sahab gurudwara. It is completely managed by the Indian army. *Proud feeling*.
It was extremely peaceful 💙. Next, we went to see a tourist spot called 'Sangam'. It's the point where river Zanskar meets Indus! How cool!
We then went to see the Shanti stupa. It's huge and extremely peaceful. Go there to live your breath to the fullest. It's that fulfilling.
And then, we spent the entire evening roaming on the streets of Leh. Aahhh, please take me back :')
We then visited, the War memorial 🇮🇳
That place gave me goosebumps. We learned about how army men survive and fight in tough conditions (please exaggerate tough), how in past, wars were fought, lives were lost and a lot more. It definitely raised the level of patriotism in my veins and blood. Jai Hind!
