I flew north out of Delhi over the Himalayas. Leh in sparsely populated Ladakh is in the rain shadow, not affected much by monsoon.
This is one of the very best hiking destinations in the world in September. Spectacular arid, jagged mountains.
I’ll walk the most famous trek for sure – Markha Valley. Perhaps another after that.
I’m staying at Hotel Chube for the first 3 nights. Will likely leave my luggage there when I go off trekking.
Everything fantastic so far. Bright sunshine. Warm weather. Gorgeous vistas. 🙂
