Road Trip to Leh Day 15 - Diskit to Leh

Crossing Khardung La once is tough and due to Shayok overflowing at some parts, here was our second attempt in as many days. Very lucky. We left Diskit at 7:15 am and had lovely roads for the next 65 kms.

We reached the peak soon without much drama. Khardung La crossing can be treacherous due to many reasons - traffic jam or landslides or accidents that means you are stuck in high altitude. Luckily for us our fire to Leh was very uneventful; thank god for that.


Reached our home stay in Leh in 5 hours which is great time. After a lunch nearby and break in the afternoon we left for the Leh palace and market. After all how can u come to Leh and not shop??


Tomorrow we bid adieu to Ladakh as we begin our descent to Keylong enroute Manali. We expect to cross another famous pass - Rohtang Pass.

I found this awesome video on FB and wanted to ensure that everyone of my friends going there don't add to the problem while visiting this beautiful place.
