Default Re: Five brother's winter trip to Leh - Ladakh

Thank you for the compliments dailydriver, luvtandon, procrj, behaln.

For those who are from southern part of India trip to Leh - Ladakh in their own ride is not easy, requires months planning. Driving all the way can be managed some how. But getting atleast 2 weeks leave, getting permission from "home ministry" are the biggest challenges.

Easier option is air route to Leh and then visiting places opting road trip or going for a trek.

Winter season, snowfall, amount of snow everywhere, very less crowd, good weather with bright sunshine added much required charm to otherwise normal trip of ours.

Waiting for the rest of the report.

Fantastic travelogue. Really felt like going there in winter. Since Im planning EBC latter this summer I can already imagine the issues due to cold and lack of oxygen. Images of Pangong Tso fully frozen are not as widely seen ! Great to also know you could spot some wildlife along the route. Doing Hemis in winter for Snow leopard is also a wild dream I have ! Some day.....

Thank you nilanjanray. You must plan winter trip to Ladakh. I am sure the beauty you capture through your lenses will be even better.

Thank you (i) for the wonderfully narrated piece and (ii) also for sharing the pictures in detail.

I enjoyed the narrative and the pictures and this also helped me take a decision if I should be taking a 4 year old to Leh end of this month. Having seen the pictures - I now have the answer. No points for guessing. I am not taking the 4 year old.
