Freeze – e – Ladakh

  • drvictor19 on #23598

    Freeze/ frozen is the most common word we hear.. when we talk about Winter Ladakh.

    Yes Ladakh freezes in winters … temp. dips to -40deg.C… and this is the reason we avoid going there in this season.
    But on the other hand we say Ladakh is a heaven….. so should weather be the criteria to visit Heaven.?

    Friends this is my first travelogue in this wonderful community which is working with a vision in mind. I hope You’ll like it and ignore my grammatical mistakes. :) :)
    I dedicate this travelogue to all people who make our stay, travelling comfortable even in minus temperatures during winters in Ladakh.

    Ladakh in winters was always a dream for me and this January (22nd Jan – 29th Jan 2015), the dream was fulfilled and what we saw was……………………………….!!

    Before going there .. I thought of clicking lot of pics of frozen Pangong…. but when I reached there the weather and wind made it impossible to stand there for more than 15 min. 😆 😆 😆

    Really awesome pics mate. Specially the one with the monastery. Love the rising mist. Might have to plan a trip sometime in the winters too.
