We got up early morning for a 12-14 hour journey to Keylong! It was going to be a long journey and more of travelling.
Since we could not capture Tsomoriri well last day as we had reached late, we took photos in the morning on our way to Keylong.
The water of Tsomoriri has many colour gradations. Because of windy weather the lake is quite wavy with a lot of blues, greens & violets. This lake has more gradations of colour than even Pangong.
There is a beautiful countryside view immediately after you pass Tsomoriri Lake on the way to Keylong.
Then you cross the Tsokar lake which is also extremely beautiful. Its partly an icy lake and the place is extremely scenic.
We had another driver – Mr.Phunsuk (We call him Michael Schumacher from Ladakh!) we were following. He was driving a Mahindra Xylo and he was way too fast. We took a halt for lunch at Tsokar Restaurant in Pang.
We had to again have Chowmein for lunch! Then we proceeded further. We left before Mr.Phunsuk but he again caught us on the way pretty quickly.
The road and terrain is extremely rocky and gives the feel of the Grand Canyons. The road has a lot of loops and Mr. Phunsuk (Mr. Schumacher – we started calling him that!) kept taking a lot of shortcuts and before we knew, his car skidded on a short-cut turn over a loop very badly and just a stone saved the car and the people inside. Even we halted our car and our folks, Mr.Hadi & Mr.Salman Khan went running to help the car out from the trouble.
Everyone inside the car started cursing this guy for his rash & carefree driving.…
