First Day in Leh 7th 0f July 2015

I Reached Leh in the early morning hours by Air India flight on 7th July 2015. The flight landing was smooth and fantastic!

The taxi was in time and transferred me to a guest house as planned. The Guest house was really good and are at reasonable rates. Enjoyed welcome Tea and got into my room! Leh being a tourist place i observed there are guest houses every corner, ofcource hotels too.

The views from the room were nice, especially from Bathroom 😉 The mountains below in the photos are from Bathroom, it has big windows, I think that was the purpose.

Leh, being at an altitude of 3524 meters or 11562 ft, it is common that one can get altitude sickness if came from lower altitudes by Flight. An announcement also can heared on Leh Airport as well as you can read board which suggest to take rest for 24 Hrs to 36 Hrs.

I took rest for that day, Sleeping and viewing from the windows. In the evening just took a small walk on the road and captured few snaps. Roads were very narrow, where I was staying and its very difficult for two vehicles crossing each other at a time. Well, not many vehicles come there.

It was 19:00 in the evening, and I saw few children came out for playing football. I have seen that until 19:30 the visibility is very good, and seems like sunset timing is 20:00

Check out the photos below which I took on the first day. Only 5-6 Images are of DSLR and remaining from mobile.
