The pinnacle πŸ—»

I survived 7 days without wifi and network !! I feel on top of the world !!

Wait, I am ACTUALLY on top of the world, at Khardungla pass – world’s highest motorable road which is approximately 18000 ft, in Leh-Ladakh πŸ˜€.

Leh- ladakh has got unrivaled beauty and solitude. You won’t believe that this is the place where there is acuteness of oxygen, sparse vegetation, lack of electricity, weak signals of wifi as well as network…. And this makes the place adventurous and all the more captivating. The place seems to be a great attention seeker!

The locals in Leh-Ladakh live a very simple lifestyle. They are polite, friendly, optimistic and united- all the characteristics which define an ideal human. Talking to them is always very pleasing. A group of rosy cheeked girls came running towards me and greeted me with a wide smile. I felt so nice and comfortable 😊.

People here have a great vision and they can sense things better than us. They are highly experienced people who survive the extreme with a cosy smile every single day. Yes! They are warriors and valient heroes.

The clouds soaring in the divine sky tenderly kiss the mountain peaks to form an eye catching and peaceful scenery.

Wherever you go in leh -ladakh you will always find mountains standing tall and high, looking down upon you with curiosity and eagerness. It seems as if each one of them has a story to tell. A story in which they reveal their glory, experience and wisdom.

It’s the place where you can click hundreds of pictures and still can’t get satisfaction! Every new corner unleashes a mesmerising scene accompanied by goddess of beauty.

We drank apricot walnut saffron tea. Natural sweetness of apricot and occasional crunchiness of walnut makes the drink heavenly.

Ever seen a circle rainbow ? 360 degrees ? Wonderful phenomenon it surely is 🌈!!

The sky obsessed with it’s alluring appearance looks down to see it’s reflection in the crystal clear water of Pangong lake.

And the wind that flows, aesthetically carves the sand dunes in Nubra valley.

Can I forget the deadly experience I had in the snowstorm?! My hair were turning white with snow flakes πŸ˜‚, toes were numb and I am surprised how I was still alive without my jacket on!

There’s always a fight between sun and wind. So we experienced all kinds of weather at the same place πŸ˜‚. One moment you are a stuffed teddy bear and next moment, sun suddenly becomes dominant and all you can do is to remove all the warm clothes off!

So… What I learnt from this trip?

Beauty lies in simplicity. Your inner self reflects your outer vision.

And as always, nature did not fail to impress me. It once again struck the chords of my heart 😊.

 

 

~Have a nice day !!

  1. Loved the halo 😊 Leh Ladakh!!! 😍😍 I have been wanting to go there for ages now. Heard a lot about it. Looks like you had a lot of fun, except for the snowstorm may be.. but that’s also a one time life experience isn’t it πŸ˜‰

  2. To be disconnected for a week sounds challenging yet incredibly freeing, I’m tempted to try it myself though I don’t think I’ll find anywhere as beautiful to visit as you did. I’d not heard of Leh- ladakh before, but I like the sound of the lifestyle and the views are stunning. Great photos πŸ™‚

  3. I wonder if they have a better vision and sense things better than us because they don’t have all the wi-fi, distractions we have everyday? We tend to tune out stuff, they are tuned in. It sounds heavenly. I could picture you all bundled up and then quickly peeling off layers to keep up with the quickly changing surroundings, and then quickly putting everything back on. The circle rainbow is spectacular, happy you were able to capture it. What a wonderful journey πŸ™‚

    1. Absolutely true 😊 and also because they have faced a vareity of situations and have a lot of experience. They know that life is not a bed of roses and remain strong when worse situations are yet to come.
      Haha exactly 😁
      The picture was just a random shot. The sun was extremely bright and difficult to see. So I positioned my mobile that way and… luck!!
      Thank you so much πŸ˜€ we enjoyed a lot!

  4. What a spectacular trip!! I adore that you left the techno world behind for a week. Sounds so small but it’s a huge triumph nowadays. We get lost in the world of our phones and laptops and yet we miss all of the true reality around us. Brilliant and beautiful!!
