The different colours on the surface are a treat to observe.

Its such a beautiful lake, made more beautiful by the lack of tourists (of the scale that go to Pangong).

The next day was a rest day, we went to the Sanchi Stupa in Leh in the evening.

I keep thinking, why do these Japanese come all the way to remote parts of India and build these. Agreed they are important Buddhist historical places, but building a stupa here seems like the Japanese coming and saying “Hey, these historical places are not just your heritage but our heritage too, and therefore we will also erect something here to leave our mark.” Is this the reason? I like the stupas, they are generally peaceful places (there is a one nice one next to the Asoka edicts near Bhubaneswar which we used to frequent in my school days); but that money can be better spent- we do not need new religious places in this country (and this is true for all major religions in this country, we just need to maintain the ones that are already there).
