Day 07 (27.08.2015) – Nubra Valley returned to Leh, Ladakh (136km)
 

The return journey from Nubra Valley to Leh was just as magnificent as going there as we have to pass through the Khardung La Pass again.

At 6am we had breakfast followed by group photo, briefing and puja in the garden. At 7.17am we left the resort for the 136km back to MIMC Leh. We stopped at Khalsar Village to donate the amount of 15 thousand rupees to the village head as relief fund for the flood victims after the flood about three weeks ago before we arrived. At 9.35am we stopped for toilet at a small rest area. By 11.20am we were at the KhardungLa pass again and then continued our journey arriving MIMC at 1.10pm for our lunch at 1.30pm.
Sleeping at Global Family Home

As usual our morning briefing and puja for a safe journey.

The recent flash flood and heavy rain that destroyed parts of the Khalsar Village.







We stopped at Khalsar Village to donate the amount of 15 thousand rupees to the two villages head as relief fund for the flood victims after the heavy rain and flash flood about three weeks ago before we arrived.

















At 9.35am we stopped for toilet at a small rest area.

Our drivers and guides. The red cap was given by Ruby Song who got it from Gardenia Bakeries (KL) Sdn Bhd.





On the way most of the vehicles we met were the Indian Army trucks.








We stopped here in view that there was a traffic jam ahead the road.




We safely arrived here at Khardung La the world highest motor-able road.

I was standing at the edge of the road side with a thousand feet down.


The highest toilet in the world, higher than Everest Base Camp. I was not able to pee inside because of the smell, so I did it beside the toilet.

The splendid view of the mountain valley and the snow cap mountain.








One of our cars had a tyre puncture.




Another stop another toilet break. Ching Bee Geok and the donkey.





That was a terrible traffic jam here.


This car missed the truck in front by inches.


We have finally arrived at Leh safely.



Arrived at MIMC.

Best lunch at MIMC, from soup to Paneer Chilli, Paneer Kadai, Mix veg, Raita, Rice, Daal and Roti and not forgetting masala milk tea.
