    Default Untold Story: "Family Trip" around Cold Frozen Deserts of Ladakh in 2010

    Dear Friends,


    After the Bike Trip in 2008 , I had promissed Myself to take My Family to the land of lamas. Wanted them to experience the wonders that I did. My Son was just 3 years old and I didn't find any help online regarding AMS for kids! so the journey begins with a lot of Ambiguity and a Strong Will to Visit the places again.


    Plan is to Pack almost half the house (Family trip with a Kid you see) fly in and out of Srinagar
    Enjoy the 17 days in between visiting all places I did with Regzin Sir in his 2WD 2006 Scorpio.


    Some Good Pics Below, lets see if you can get the list of all the places visited by glimpses below.
    Me My Wife Anu & Son Tejas were Joined by Vaidee and His Wife Sree.
    They left in a Weeks time as his startup was very new & we got to spent two weeks in Ladakh.
    First few days pics were taken by both of us, have his node to upload & use pics in the log.


    Lets the Pics Speak & you Guess all the places







































































    Now Guess or list All the places!


    Cheers
    Sunil

    Thanks Monk,

    Day1: 5 June 2010

    Me My Wife Anu & Son Tejas with Vaidee & His Wife Sree landed in J&K Airport after changing flight in Delhi, Srinagar had one Armed soldier guarding each side of the shop, one Small gun carrier at each Circle! Telephone Network down! shows full signal, but wont call!. late in the noon we checked in to a hotel Malik Palace in front of Dal lake, went for a Shikara Ride in the evening, did some shopping in the house boats market and back to hotel, woke up early for the flight yousee.






    Thanks
    Sunil

    Day2: 6 June 2010


    We were in Pahalgam, Did lots of horse riding, Stayed at the JKDC guest house I guess, it was OK in 2010 but in 2012 visit it was Horrible! Would NOT recommend this place to stay. Tejas Has a Great Time riding the horse. This was My First horse ride too & couldn't believe the abilities of a 1HP 4LW (four legged walker) You have to lean back in down slopes & lean forward on climbs. watch out for your legs & Head as the horse does not include or care for your body overhang and will just brush pass bushes, branches & Trees. Lovely experience
    some pics:


    Hotel in the Morning:






    Me with Tajes



    Regzin sir checking out the HID kits I bought for Him



    Locals, watch out the water Mellon!








    We had a Ball of a time on the river side here

    Day3: Gulmarg:






















    Heir a Guide, he will avoid the BIG queues for Golkonda tickets at both ticket counters.











    Avoid Horse riding in Gulmarg, its useless!!










    Avoid The Slides too, again Useless, I was pestered & forced to take the ride
































    At the Top, First Experience in Snow!! was wonderful.


































    My Cam also got a Tast of it








    Others Skiing down







    What a Mess while we came down, even avoiding the ticket queue, still such a big rush to go down, CRAZY Adult bulls who cannot care for family or kids, Dangerously jumping across the path of arriving gondalas, No proper security or Police manning at the Top!.


    Met some Biker boys en route

    Thanks Guys

    We stayed in a Hotel in Kargil & Saw a Nano there! with BCMT stickers, dont like this place somehow. its hard to find Veg restaurants too.











    Hats off to folks doing this route on the 1st gen Nano!
























    We met some locals enroute to Dha Village, the landscape completely changes once you get off the LEH route!





    Onf of them looks with suspection!


















    Mush have been a BAD war, Yes All wars are bad.













    This Place is really good, wanted to stay a night here, Very peaceful with greenery too.











    That's not a short cut, but the only way in & out of Dha













    See no one comes here so they lock & hang the key there too





    Multi store complex I guess





    This is where they store the lifestock





    The dwarf door











    This pic is taken from the kitchen of the hotel, you can notice a Human face on the hill naturally engraved!





    Arayan race





    How Anu looks now & will look later in about 100 years ( I guess she never reads this)





    Was shocked to see the post box so fat=r in the corner!!





    The pic dose not do justice to the bridge, its way more beautiful.








    The Next day we rested in Leh, the Next one we wanted to go to Nubra but were caught in South Paullu for 3 hours, due to traffic Jam, we were all getting AMS & Shouting at each other, got hungry too & returned back to Leh, pics @ south Paullu.




    Refreshments @ leh























    Thanks Sunil
