A traveler who has never been to Ladakh is not a traveler. There's no traveler on this earth who doesn't have Ladakh on his wish list. Ladakh is all about experience and can hardly be described in words.
My journey began on a very low note. I had a connecting flight from Mumbai - Delhi - Leh. But the flight from Delhi got delayed and i had to sleep on the airport for 8 hours. Just because it was Ladakh, i had my excitement levels high.
Finally i got on the flight and after almost 1.5 hrs i could see the mountain ranges below the flight out the window. I was tired as hell, i hadn't slept the whole night, but the moment i saw that view, it was all gone and I was ready to start my trip.
Leh airport is small but one of the best airport i have been to. The airport is surrounded by snow clad mountains with clear skies overhead, simply breathtaking.
