The Spic and Span Hotel was great fun. With splendid views of the gorgeous ever changing Stok Kangri Mountain (altitude 6,153 m) and a backdrop of the majestic Zanskar Ranges, this lovely Tibetan styled hotel boasts super friendly and helpful staff, nicely appointed clean rooms and a very pleasant restaurant. We found the food and service very good. We enjoyed relaxing in the small pleasant gardens where we could order food and drinks, including alcohol. Local dance performances were held here also. We would highly recommend this venue.

We crossed over Khardung La pass at 18,379 feet (5,602 meters) to go down into the Nubra valley to visit a few distant Himalayan villages. Most of the villages were established by Tibetan immigrants who were buddhists. At the end of the valley was a ancient village called Turtuk that was on the Silk Road. Most of the people were Muslim decendants who once lived ...
... the Spituk Monastery. We first had to cross the Indus river again. The sight of any water in this extremely dry climate is always a welcoming one. It would have been great to just have a picnic under a tree by the river, but we had no food, no time and weren't hungry anyway, having had a soup back at the Museum. Spituk Monastery also offers great views of Leh and the Indus valley. The temple with the Buddha was closed unfortunately. After this, we still had a couple of hours to kill, so ...
... faiths to the Kalachakra Initiation also stating that it is important for people to remain true to their own faith while appreciating the truth of other traditions (I don’t have an exact quote, just a paraphrase). In Leh and around Ladakh you can see the vibrant beauty of the Ladaki dress and Buddhist imagery most everywhere you go, while also hearing the call to prayer from the ornate mosques that may be right next to a Buddhist stupa. Buddhists, Muslims, ...

On the way to the next monastery, we stopped at an anomaly called the Magnetic Hill. Our driver stopped the vehicle and put it in neutral. Sure enough, the vehicle started to roll up hill. Now, all of these type of phenomenon are all optical illusions. I am assuming this to be the case here as well!!!
Our last monastery of the day is Spituk. It was built in ...
