After watching snow leopards play in the high mountains of Ulley, it was time to start our journey towards Hemis. In the next 3 days, we will walk though Hemis shukpachan, Temisgam and finally Tar.
Starting towards Hemis, on the way Stanzin(my guide) suggested that we take a small detour and visit a meditation retreat, high up in the mountains of Ulley. These individual meditation houses are spread across Ladakh. They were used by Buddhist monks of high calibre to carry their meditation alone, in the most remote environment.
The way to the meditation retreat was pretty steep, so we hid our bag in the opposite mountain top, away from foraging wild animals and started our climb.
