It was a magical surreal moment when I saw the vast expanse of white salty marshland .I had read about the place being the largest salt desert stretching across 7,505.22 square kilometres.One has to see this place to believe that.We reached there by 4.30 PM and left after witnessing the beautiful sunset. Also walked on the crunchy salt barefoot and took a camel ride.None of us wanted to leave .
The best time to visit is from October till March.The Rann Utsav is an annual cultural festival and is held in December.I can only visualise the ethereal beauty of this place on a full moon night.And I will be coming back some day soon to witness that.
I have found a way to bounce back whenever I feel out of sorts and it has always helped me. What I do is very simple-think of a place I have always wanted to visit ,read about it and see the images .This is a sure way to get the endorphins rolling and I am back to normal in no time.
Yesterday I was going through my Ladakh pictures and made a promise to myself that I would go there again.
Ladakh is fast becoming the most favoured destination for Indians.I was happy to see “desis” of all age groups when I went there in August 2014. This was on top of my wish list for a long time .Whenever I read a Leh travelogue I would tell myself that I am going there at the first opportunity.Well ,finally I found myself in this magical land and it was a dream coming true after months of frenetic planning and unanticipated delays.
How can one process so many emotions ?Can anyone do justice to its beauty?We can take zillion pictures but can we capture all the moments?You have to be there to experience the magic .I wish this land retains its purity and charm and that one never gets to see a KFC or Pizza hut there.
.You may go there with minimum expectations but I assure you that you will return a different person.I have read that many got the wander bug after being there once.As for me,I want to go back and explore more .Are you a wanderer? Do you have a dream destination?
