    Always wondered how the experience would be to stay n spend some days in the land of high passes in winters. Many travelogues and write ups n infos about LADAKH in WINTER on bcmtouring encouraged me and helped me to finally go there and experience it first hand. i wish to showcase my journey through my photographs and also provide whatever first hand info i can ....


    THE PLAN :
    DAY 1 - 24th JAN 2018 : 9.45 pm flight from kolkata to delhi
    DAY 2 - 25th JAN 2018 : 7.30 am flight from delhi to leh. visit spituk and namgyal tsemo.
    DAY 3 - 26th JAN 2018: sham valley visit (basgo, likir, alchi, lamayuru monasteries and zanskar - indus sangam)
    DAY 4- 27th JAN 2018 : leh - khardung la - leh
    DAY 5 - 28th JAN 2018: leh - pangong tso - leh
    DAY 6 - 29th JAN 2018: leh 9.30 am flight to delhi. 5.55pm flight to kolkata

    Total Members 6 : DWAIPAYAN DAS (me) , PAYEL DE , SHOUBHIK ROY , PALLABI ROY , DIPTANSU SENGUPTA (1st time to ladakh), SURYA SHEKHAR GANGULY (1st time to ladakh).

    There are a thousand things to consider whenever one visits ladakh anyway, and when you visit in winters the list of considerations just gets longer, specially with 2 first timers. I will let you know about such things as i move along.
