Ladakh-Spectacularly Jagged

Spectacularly jagged, arid mountains enfold this magical Buddhist arena, picture-perfect gompas(Tibetan Buddhist monasteries) dramatically crown rocky outcrops amid whitewashed stupas and mani walls. Around the rugged mountains, the colorful fluttering prayer flags share their spiritual messages metaphorically with the mountain breeze. The walls of dramatic mountains that hem in Ladakh make for an unforgettable landscape.

Ladakh’s short tourist season(July to early September) typically sees mild to moderate hot T-shirt weather by day and pleasant chilly nights. Early July is great for flowers and peaks are still dusted with snow but August is better for high passes, which can still be snowbound peaks. By September snow is likely on the higher ground although major passes usually stay open until October.

Few places in India are at once are so traveller-friendly and yet so enchanting and hassle-free as mountain framed Leh. DEL-LEH Spicejet flight takes around 55mins of flight time. The last 10mins of before landing at LEH AIRPORT(Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport) is breathtaking moments. The only thing I have seen is snow-laden peaks and some clumsy clouds. I captured the touch down very carefully as the airport is under the Defence(Indian Army) and turn down my gopro.
