Starry skies

This is one place in India where you can see Milky Way. The stars are amazing and because of the clear skies, it makes it possible to see the dust easily.

Tree trunks, bridge and the post box

The life of Ladakhis is interesting. They have found ways to adapt to the climate and nature. And because of this, one can see some of the different ways these people live.

On our first day in Leh, there was a cultural dance and music show performed by the Ladakhi localities. One of the dances, the dancers performed was the Surahi dance. The Surahi dance is also known as the Chang Rches. In this dance the dancers place the pots of Chang on their heads and dance. The Chang or Chhaang is a local alcoholic beverage in Ladakh. It is a barley wine.
