Magnetic Hill Leh

Magnetic Hill Leh

It is the phenomenon that really defies gravity. I never believed this sitting in Delhi until I experienced it myself. Just park your vehicle and you will see it moving forward as if someone is pulling it. The impact of the giant Magnetic hill is such that even the overloaded trucks start moving.

Magnetic Hill is located about 18 Kms from Leh on the Leh Kargil highway. After visiting Gurudwara Patthar Sahib you can proceed further towards the Magnetic Hill and experience the phenomenon which is trully amazing. Few Kms from Magnetic Hill you can experience yet another mesmerising view i.e. meeting of two historical rivers, Sangam of Indus (Sindhu ) River and Zanskar. The two rivers with two different colors meet so elegantly and is a treat to watch.

Leh to Pangong Lake via Changla Pass

Leh to Pangong Lake
Pangong Lake in Leh Ladhakh region of Jammu and Kashmir is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Distance of Pangong lake from Leh is around 160 Kms and it takes around 5 hours to reach Pangong via Changla Pass world's second highest pass in the world. It is advisable to get acclimatise to the high altitude climate and stay in Leh for two days before you head towards Changla Pass. No need to worry even if you encounter any problem of lack of oxygen there, just do not pannic and get in touch with the Great Indian Army personnel. They will help you out with all the medication and oxygen that you need.

The panoramic view throughout the journey to Pangong Lake from Leh is amazing and mesmerising. Pangong Lake is completely frozen during December to March.
