Ladakh – Leh – IndiaJuly 13, 2016
Posted by Kanga. Please do not reblog.
We spent five days in Leh, India which is in the Himalaya mountain range at an altitude of over 11,500 feet. Our first day was spent sleeping and trying to get over the altitude sickness. We woke up around 2 pm, walked to the nearest cafe to have lunch and then right back to the hotel to sleep some more. We were mostly okay by the second day, but were not ready for anything strenuous.
Leh is both beautiful, as you can see above, and rustic.
We took it easy, ate lots of good food…
… saw plenty of cows, dogs, and donkeys …
Why did we go to Leh? You might ask. We were invited by a dear friend to join her and her family to celebrate her birthday. It was a pretty spectacular place for a birthday party. Aside from the altitude sickness and the unseasonable warm weather, we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
