    Day 6
    12/09 (Wed), Local Leh

    One more time Dorjay Bhaiya (Ling's owner) took care of me so well that I was feeling much better today morning and was ready to move around with not full but with manageable energy. We got ready around 10 ish to start our local excursion in and around the city. We gave our IDs and itinerary to Dorjay Bhaiya to arrange our permits for next few days.

    We straightaway went to Spituk Monastery from where we could see a spectacular view of AI flight landing at Leh Airport and later we realized it was not allowed to click Leh airport or runway due to security reasons.

    After that, we visited Hall of Fame which was on the way to SNM Hospital where blanket had to be returned. Dr Dorje was not available today as well but I handed over the blanket to the caretaker of same ward.

    We had only one day to visit so many places in and around Leh so after SNM we went to Shey Palace, Thiksey Monastery, Rancho School, Stakna Monastery then moved back to Ling's for lunch.

    After an hour's lunch break at Ling's we went to see more places in other direction like Magnetic Hill, Nimmoo (confluence), Pathar Sahib, Local Leh Market and Shanti Stupa.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Met a friend 'Lobzang Zotpa' suddenly at fuel pump in Leh, he is the guy who was a great help last year in arranging the copy of FIR from Diskit post our accident.[​IMG]

    After a busy day, Col. Pawar kindly came to see us at Ling's around 9 pm. Such a wonderful person he is, another biggest support he was last year in Leh.

    Thankful to him and yes he made our Day 8 of this trip memorable too :)[​IMG][​IMG]
