Oh Leh, oh Leh, oh Leh, oh Leh...

Leh, India

Joolay !!

Well we have finally arrived in the desert city of Leh, and what a time we had getting here !! Day 1: the bus had 2 punctures on the way, so we spent 17 hrs on bumpy roads with sore arses and then spent the night in a tent at 4200m - very cold !! The next day wasn't as long fortunately, but all the way the scenery was spectacular, changing from one valley to the next. We went over Taglang La, at 5328m, the second highest road in the world....the whole journey it was amazing !!

There is quite a contrast between the lushness of Manali and the dry, desert of Leh. We're gonna relax for a few days and get used to life at the new dizzy heights.

The internet connection here is notoriously slow so we will endeavour to post some more photos soon.

Hope you are all well,


Jon & Nik.

Sounds great! There's a joke there about your sore arse but I won't be the first to make it ;-)

Wish I could nip over mate sounds really nice. Shame I gotta start my new job as the new (and improved) Jon "The Boy" Walton!

Take care of each other

Makes our trip to Chatsworth seem very tame, but the monsoon season is still with us.
Tried to ring you today but unable to get connection, will try again soon. All ok at this end love to you both and take care. M and D.
