We left early morning to Leh again. We took few more pics of the Pangong Lake in the morning. After reaching Leh, we took a short break.

We had lunch, then took a short siesta and then headed for Saboo Village to see the traditional ladakhi kitchen. We were very excited to see the traditional ladakhi kitchen.

Mr.Hadi explained a few things about the traditional ladakhi kitchen and to greet us, we had a very caring and warm lady (she was Mr. Padma Tashi’s Sister-in-law). Mr.Padma Tashi was our tour co-ordinator.

She served us Hot Tea, Biscuits & Cake and also educated us about the traditional ladakhi kitchen.

Then we met Mr.Norbo Kartok Tsering who gave us an extremely detailed info on Food, Lifestyle, Marriage, Festivals, Work, how they maintain their houses in winter etc on Ladakh.

He was extremely warm, humble and a true gentleman by nature. We had a real nice time chatting with him. In fact we didn’t realise how the time flew and it was quite late evening.

We bid him goodbye and left for our Hotel in Leh. After reaching, we had dinner and went to sleep.

Here is a Slideshow version of the above pics.

Early morning after having breakfast at our favourite Dosa joint (The sambar is beyond words!!!) we left for Pangong. We had a new friend joining us along with Mr.Hadi and his name was Mr.Salman Khan (Yes! His name was SK!!!)

He was very quiet and shy at first (very much unlike the Real Sallu Bhai) but slowly started opening up. We first headed to Hemis Monastery. Hemis Monastery is the largest monastic institution in Ladakh. This makes the Monastery a must visit.

We took a halt at Chang La for getting fresh. Then we continued further…. on the way we saw a few extremely cute Himalayan Mermots. We took a halt and tried feeding some fruits to these cuties.

But most of them were very scared of humans and ran inside their holes. One of them was very friendly and he was absolutely comfortable with us to feed him fruits. These Himalayan Mermots are very soft and furry. They have quite sharp teeth but they don’t bite.

We had fun feeding him and also took a few photos and videos. We were lucky to get a chance to feed one of these Mermots as most of them are generally scared of humans and simply run away at just the sight of people. Finally we headed to Pangong. This is also the lake where some scenes from the movie – 3 Idiots were shot.  This is an extremely beautiful salt water lake.

The blue water of this lake is even more blue than you would see in the pictures. Its a lake that only must be experienced. The water is aqua blue all through. After reaching Pangong Lake, we halted and took some fun pics.…
