Beautified with pristine lakes, Tibetan monasteries, mystical mountain ranges, and out of the world landscape, Leh never ceases to enthrall its visitors. Like millions, we’re also moved by its beauty and elegance. We recently tied our nuptial knot and we thought there could be no better place than Leh to spend our honeymoon. Both of us are nature lovers and wanted to spend some days in the lap of nature and also wanted to try our hands at some adventure. Quite away from the busy city life, we spent 5 days in Ladakh and frankly, the wonderful time we had there have etched in our hearts. Also, planning it with TravelTriangle turned out to be a smart decision for us. The team took great care of everything and made sure that we enjoy our vacation to the hilt. Moreover, Ladakh had everything we were looking for and we were able to enjoy each and every moment there. Here we are jotting down the delightful experiences that we will cherish forever.

Weather Of Ladakh In July
We visited the place in the first week of July so the weather in Leh was absolutely pleasant. The temperature was around 23-25 degrees during the afternoon and in the night, it would drop till 2-3 degrees. However, as and when we moved outside the city, it was colder. Also, we felt that night in Pangong was quite cold.
Best Experiences & Delightful Moments Of Our Ladakh Trip
Here are some of the best experiences we came across while spending 5 days in Ladakh. While indulging in several out of the world experiences, we made blissful memories.
1. Sightseeing & Much More In Leh
Upon reaching Leh on day 1, we took a rest for a few hours at the hotel and visited Shanti Stupa in the evening. Apart from being famous for its religious significance, the stupa is a tourist attraction because of the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape. After relaxing and enjoying the beautiful landscape we headed to Leh Palace
2. Getting Into Patriotic Vibes At Hall Of Fame
The next day, we went to ‘Hall of fame’. The museum has been constructed in memory of the courageous Indian soldiers who got martyred during Indo-Pak wars. It is divided into various sections that contain several displays. Here, we saw many weapons used in the Kargil war. There were also several types of apparel and other items displayed which the Indian Army uses in the Siachen region. There was also a souvenir shop where visitors can buy various items including caps, t-shirts, pashmina shawls, coffee mugs, etc.
3. Exploring Bewitching Magnetic Hills
After enjoying a fantastic time at Hall of Fame, we headed towards mystical magnetic hills, and also a few gompas on the way and a gurdwara. Post to which we went to Sangam, the confluence Indus and Zanskar Rivers. Needless to say, the view was mesmerizing. The colors of the two rivers can be distinctly seen at the confluence. We spent a good amount of time over there and then returned back to Leh Market. Every day, we were exploring something new and since it was our honeymoon, everything seemed to be utterly blissful.
4. Diving Into The Beauty Of Pangong
Now was the time to explore Pangong on day 3. We started for Pangong early after having our breakfast. Experienced a memorable road journey with beautiful landscapes. We stopped at a few scenic places and captured those moments and then we reached Changla Pass. It was all snowy over there. The time we reached the place it started snowing, we enjoyed the chill at the pass and then started from there and after about 4-5 hours of the journey, we reached the “Paradise”. It was a clear sunny day we visited Pangong. I can say have never seen anything more beautiful and peaceful than that till now. Every nature lover must visit this place once in a lifetime. No trip to Ladakh is complete without visiting this magnificent natural wonder with its vast blue water base, clear skies & spine-chilling winds. We clicked pictures in the lakeside and then had snacks and enjoyed the scenic beauty of the place. Also, we stayed in Ladakh Summer Camp in the night.
5. Treating Our Souls At Monasteries
On day 4, we started our journey back to Leh. While coming back we visited a few monasteries and the famous school which was shot in the movie ‘Three Idiots’. Als, while playing our visit to some of the best monasteries in Ladakh, we could feel our souls getting a unique sense of peace and relaxation. It was such a soul-soothing experience for both of us. Also, we realized that our trip came to its end and we could hardly believe how fast these 5 days in Ladakh went.
Our Personal Expenses In Ladakh
Out total trip package for 4 days & 5 nights was of around 37k for two which included a stay with Breakfast and dinner, and transportation. Apart from this, we had spent on flight tickets from Delhi to Leh and vice versa. Rest, we also splurged on shopping and lunch while roaming.
Shopping In Ladakh
We got stuff like Jackes, pashmina shawls, and various souvenirs, etc. Also, after so much shopping, we realized that the prices of the products were very reasonable in Leh Market. If you buy the same thing from Places like Hall of Fame, it would cost you more.
Food In Ladakh
We mostly visited the small restaurants that we used to pass through on our way. Pangong restaurant is one eatery we can vividly remember. It turned out to be a great choice as we were served with a veg full meal that tasted more like simple homely food. The wifi was also free there which was like a bliss our mobile services were not working there. Apart from this, there are also various restaurants in Ladakh where one can find both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
Hotels In Ladakh
We stayed at Hotel Nature’s land in Leh. The people there were very humble and rooms were spotlessly clean. The best part was that they organized a special candlelight dinner for us on the first day of our visit. Besides this, in Pangong, we stayed overnight in Ladakh Summer Camp which had all the basic amenities and was very cozy.
