I have 3 days itinerary on this area including 1 day trip to the Pangong lake. I was sick due to altitude sickness combined with gastro upset and wasn’t able to go out for 1 1/2 days.
I was grateful because my private tour guide, Sonam Angno was always there who looked after me while I was sick. If you are looking for a tour guide, she is highly recommended.
See my next road adventure from Leh to visit the famous Pangong Lake.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”
