Still Breathless!

Back from a 14 day visit to Kashmir that covered Leh, Kargil, Srinagar, Pahelgam and Gulmarg. Ladakh seems to be the best kept secret, more beautiful and spectacular than anything that I have seen before, Yosemite National Park, Swiss Alps, Rockies etc. We were breathless in every way, difficulty in breathing in Leh at an elevation of 11,500ft, out of breath while we trekked from Leh to Rumbak, the spectacular views of Pangong Lake, the engineering effort to build the highest motorable pass at 18,356 ft., 2 day drive from Leh to Srinagar, the sacrifice of our soldiers during Operation Vijay, at Tiger Hill, at Drass near Kargil, the contrast views at Jozilla Pass, a 9 hole game at Gulmarg Golf course, the highest course in the world, a 18 hole game at Royal Springs, the best Golf Course in India. I will write more about the trip shortly.
