So, Leh’s been cropping up a lot recently on the blogs I read, triggering the ‘me too’ syndrome. Here are my two paise on the enchanting roads from old Manali to Leh.
Leh, the travails…
At first, you think it's only a traffic jam. Yeah, a traffic jam : |
Then you realise, "Oh, a car's stuck" : (
And then we see WHY it's stuck. "Fuck!" :O
Leh, the treasures!
Barely 3 hours into the trip from old Manali, we saw the clouds rushing to meet us at our level and then ascend further away. I also truly understood the meaning of 'rolling plains covered in velvet'
I touched snow. And I have no words to describe how good it felt, after craving snow for years
Mountains, snow, sand, grass, water... Everything that Mum Nature has to offer, all together
See the storm-in-the-waiting in the background? And we have reached a boastful 15, 547 feet
The breeze will play with your hair at all windy places. But when it does in Leh, rest assured you have discovered your most favourite place on earth.
