Leh Diary@Day 9

September 12, Saturday: Back to Delhi

We have a 7.00 am Kingfisher flight back to Delhi. We leave the hotel early and soon I am on my seat, the seat-belt clasped. The aircraft takes off and I crane my neck- looking out of the window to see the last of Leh. The week we spent here was wonderful. We relaxed, we saw a different people and culture and more than anything nature at its best. I feel lucky visiting and learning about this place, which, in turn taught me some things about myself. So long!


  1. sounds like a fantastic trip. i want to go to leh too now !!!

  2. Hi... nice blog... I had gone thru ur Leh trip. Pictures are really beautiful. I was thinking to go there. Is it possible to tell me how much was the total expenses including air ticket Delhi-leh-delhi, hotels, treks, local transport, food, etc. per person. Rough figure is also ok.

  3. Hi Pratiksha,thank you. We booked 2 months in advance and our flight tickets came to about Rs 12,000 per head. The guesthouse room (Oriental) was about Rs 1200 per night excluding food. Trek and local transport cost is more or less fixed and will depend on what you choose to do. A trip to Pangong lake will cost Rs 5000 for a car, which means Rs 2500/head if you are 2 people but Rs 1000 if you are 5.
