There is a famous Ladakhi saying that “the land is so barren and the passes so high that only our fiercest enemies or our best friends would want to visit us”.
Ladakh is a heart-warming example of how nature allows life amidst the harshest conditions. And the people in Ladakh are one with nature. One smile from them, while they work, and you feel your materialistic worries melt away. Must like the snow on the mountains you can see from your balcony.
When you cross the Khardung La at 5602m (18,379ft) and enter the stupendous Nubra Valley, you understand why. Surrounded by the seemingly impenetrable Himalayas, the valley was once a hotbed of the thriving Trans-Himalayan trade. Originally known as Ldumra, meaning the valley of flowers, Nubra valley offers a bright panaroma of colors spread over a brown canvas.
The ever changing colors of Pangong Tso, makes you cry. And we narrate by experience. No religion of the world can give the peace and clarity you get by starting at those ever changing blue waters. Get your epiphany!
Loved the entire trip, the sense of adventure, fun n spotting unusual things, visiting unexplored places … Also the pricing was fairly reasonable- which is a huge plus point n there were no hidden charges ( a total relief) Overall- a fantastic experience n i feel really safe n tension-free n relaxed while undertaking your trips especially to distant far-flung destinations. Definitely look forward to probably planning an overseas trip- if any planned in the near future. Cheers to the entire team of F5 n of course a special mention – Malini, you truly rock!!!!
