This is my first day of the first trip to Leh Ladakh. It is a beautiful place, very calm and serene with clear blue sky and mountains but the oxygen levels are low. One has to acclimatise on the first day. Breathing is slow and heavy. Roads are not so good. Connectivity, especially wifi is a problem. During peak tourist season, the prices go too high. These are my Day1 pictures when I visited Shanti Stupa, that is close to the hotel I am staying in, in Leh. More pictures of the trip coming up in following blog posts.
