“And in those earthly tones of the naked landscape, lies an unearthly beauty. Its ruggedness and ruthlessness will mesmerize you, as much as it would intimidate you under harsh conditions. It is for these naked mountains that you would go back every time, for your soul is lost there, as is your heart.” – Sanghita Nandi ;-)
Launching the first group trip of ‘A Traveller’s Diary’ and to none other than the Baap of all Indian destinations - LADAKH.
Come August 2nd, you can join me on this epic full circuit road trip as we enter Ladakh through the breathtaking Srinagar-Leh Highway, explore ways of getting Leh’d, check off Khardung La – the (disputed) highest motorable road from your bucket list, roll in the sand dunes of India’s only cold desert in Nubra Valley, camp by the shore of the ethereal Pangong and be bowled over by the stunning Tso Moriri. And once we are done with all these and more madness like racing to the top of that mountain, throwing snowballs at each other and finding those cute marmots (and may be Galdalf’s horse too), we’ll head out of Ladakh through the challenging Leh-Manali Highway which passes through terrains like the Moore Plains, Gata Loops and the Baralacha La. Now who can say No to that eh?
To all those adrenaline junkies out there, remember the road is life and there are no better roads in India for a road trip than the ones in Ladakh. From the excellently laid tarmac to tire cutting road to dirt tracks perfect for off-roading, Ladakh has it all. So what are you waiting for? Come along!
