Picturesque Ladakh

“No, LEH via plane, Whats the point?”

“No, real beauty is on the way that leads to LEH”

“Early April is off season”

Yes, I had to hear it from a lot of people.. But sometimes in life you want to enliven yourself and it does not matter what the world thinks.. After a lot of contemplation and research on altitude sickness, it seemed we (me and my parents) can survive the altitude…..

I embarked the flight with no rue,

Over the snow Summit we flew

The Placid city elevated so high

commands a day to Acclimatize

Astonishingly unpretentious and Divine

The profoundly captivating territory

Magnetic prominence that flouts gravity

The stretch of river confluence so hushed

which otherwise is ravingly uncurbed

Radiates chill unerringly resistant

In pursuit of Pinnacle

Triumphing heaps of obstacles

Atmosphere, subtle and thin

Forcing quick descent with the kin

Splendid pictures to frame

Umpteenth memories to retain

Until I see you again

as Pangong remains unattained

But can rightfully claim

Yes, I have been Leh’d!!
