What not to miss in Leh

Leh is a very simple and clean city. Most of it is maintained by ITBP (Indo Tibetian Border Police) and hence is pretty much in shape. You won’t find people littering on roads. Most visitors would spend their time shopping in roadside shops that sell good stuff like shoes, bags, hats, woolen wear, etc. You can try your negotiating skills. Local grocery vendors live hand to mouth hence don’t be too difficult on them. Surprisingly, you will rarely come across beggars in this city which is a thing to appreciate if you have been to other cities in India.

There are a lot of small cafes where you can eat local as well usual food. Maggie is something that you can get in every possible tent on the road. You will probably eat a lot of Maggie on this ride. The one thing that you should not miss in Leh is riding to Pangong-Tso and camping there for a night. Not many people would stay back at night since it gets way too cold, but, you can put up in a tent there provided by the locals and be one of the very few who has witnessed the sky and water at night. The scene is something beyond description and feels like a fairy tale. Do not miss this one. Other thing not to miss is a night at Nubra Valley OR Hunder. We recommend Nubra over Hunder if you have to make a choice.
