Jul’16 – Bare beauty of Ladakh and Pangong

Ever since I saw 3 idiots, I wanted to go to Ladakh. It seemed like one of those isolated destinations where you can be anyone you want to be – just like Aamir Khan who is a teacher cum scientist indulging in innovative experiments. 7 years later, I found the best travel companions to go on this trip and the planning began with https://www.makemytrip.com/

Singapore -> Delhi 6 hour flight + 6 hour stay in airport + 2 hour flight from Delhi -> Leh later, we found ourselves in the midst of this barren beauty.

Day 1 – Leh
