Leh is a potpourri of a vast desert habitat, enclosed by yellow colored rocky mountains, travelers and backpackers from across globe, a unique mix of Tibetan and Muslim culture, and Stupas and Monasteries dotted landscape. The city is strewn with markets, tour operators, and Bullet renting workshops. I bet you'll not have a single dull moment roaming around the narrow alleys or pick up some local artifacts, or maybe laze in a cafe sipping coffee or beer.
Its been almost 4 years to the day we decided to attempt Stok Kangri. Aug 2017 I flew out from Bengaluru to Srinagar. To be honest, till date I don't know why tried to attempt this trek as my first Himalayan trek. Nevertheless, I went.
