The fifth myth of a Leh Ladakh trip “Ladakh has banned self-drive cars, taxi mafia is creating a nuisance and beating everyone”
Most recent addition to the myths of traveling to Ladakh is that every self-drive car is being beaten up and thrown away from Ladakh by Ladakhis 🙁 🙁
In the last series we talked about the mistakes but in this series I will share with you top 12 myths of a Ladakh trip and will bust them one by one. Do share the series with your friends if you like it, may be a shoutout in your story so that more people get aware about these mistakes and myths😁
The Fact: The TRUTH is that apart from that one very sorry incident in 2015 where a private self-drive car was attacked, nothing else major was reported in a person with concrete proof except few cooked up stories. I personally went in a huge convoy of cars on our Mega Meets and did the remotest of places in Ladakh without any fuss at all.
It is the outside RENTED self-drive cars and taxis which are banned for sightseeing in Ladakh, they are also allowed to reach Leh and exit Leh. .
So, don’t let these cooked up myths spoil your self-drive experience to Ladakh. To know more details, refer my article on Rented Self Drive Cars in Leh – Ladakh Banned “FORCIBLY”

Trekkers of Travel Banjare team at stok Kangri.
Stok Kangri lies in the beautiful area of Ladakh. Stok Kangri summit is above 20,080ft and is recommended for experienced trekkers. Situated in Hemis national park, the Stok Kangri is the highest peak in the Stok range of Ladakh. This is a popular choice for trekkers to foray into the world of high altitude mountaineering, In summer (Mid of June-August), the mountain becomes snow free except the top. The trekkers can explore the shortest and most popular way to the peak, which ascends the Stok valley, along the Stok Chu. Being at 20K feet, it is still considered as an easy peak as this peak does not require technical skills.
Note : Do not litter in the mountains during the trek. Carry all your waste with you in a bag and dispose it after reaching plains, as mountains have no proper disposal system.

A Nepali man on his way down from Namche Bazaar carrying at least 60 pounds on his head across the highest bridge of the Everest base camp trek. This is one of the main ways to get supplies in and out of these tiny mountain towns. These guys are so well acclimatized that they will pass you with all this weight on their head, smoking a cigarette and having a conversation on their phone, going uphill. It’s really quite incredible to watch them haul their goods around. We watched one woman carry about 80 bottles of Coca Cola with her head. The Nepali people are amazingly strong, kind and happy.
Changtang in Ladakh is the home of the changpa nomads. They believe that their goats are everything for them, they sell the pashmina wool to buy rice and grain. Usually the nomads stay in one place for 3 or 4 months before they move on to another spot. They prefer to settle in prepared places, where stone walls give shelter to their goats and yaks. Nearby the settlements there are water springs and grassland for the goats.

Hola!!! Today was a lovely day with @MachusCottage people where I am staying at, as you might have noticed in the live video as well. Seeing the sunset and the depth of the valley was scary and peaceful at the same time.
To tell you about the place, Chauli ki Jali is half an hour away from Mauna (where I am staying). And #Mauna is right in the middle of #Almora and #Mukteshwar giving the best of both the worlds. :).
If you plan to stay at Machus Cottage you can get a discount of INR 1,399 per room for two nights stay. Just use the code "Radhika" *tee hee* .
Bir is such a lovely and peaceful place to spend your evenings at. Especially at a time when there is hardly anyone around but you still enjoy the most beautiful landscape! .
I cannot thank @zostel enough for giving me this opportunity to experience Bir peacefully and fully and to meet so many amazing people on the way!
