We left Sarchu early, like 8 in the morning, crossed a gang of foreigners on Bullets, climbed the Gata Loops, and took a well deserved short break at the altitude of 16616ft at Lachulung la.

On our super leisurely ride from Keylong towards Pang (that it ended at Sarchu that day is another story), we found our very own Tso.

And clicked pictures.

This is the fifth last picture I’ve clicked using my camera so far 🙂

And I guess this is within 5 kilometres of the spot where I got my latest (internal) scars 😛

This cute Ladakhi kid became an instant friend of ours, sipping Slice from our glasses and playing with all of us, while her family prepared an early lunch for us.

I woke up at 3 in the morning at Sarchu, partly to prepare for the long ride that lay ahead of us that day, and partly thrilled by the prospect of seeing millions of stars at once (you get to stay in tents at Sarchu).

Despite not having an intervalometer with me, I could not give up the temptation to click star trails.

So here it is: the Northern Sky as seen from Sarchu.
