New Adventures on Day 6 – Leh Ladakh Dairies!

Leh Ladakh Diaries Day – 6

For the day-6 journey, there were another few places of Leh Ladakh to visit, the most important one was the Alchi and Lamayuru Monastery. There was also an option of river rafting but for only those who drop the option of visiting Lamayuru Monastery, since the Lamayuru Monastery was far and also it was not possible to visit all the places and return back on the same day. Since my sister and her husband and few other couples who never did river rafting opted for it. So, the two buses took two different routes, all the places were almost the same except the Lamayuru Monastery and river rafting.  After having breakfast they left from hotel and first visited Shri Pathar Sahib Gurudwara. It was a very beautiful and peaceful place situated on Leh-Srinagar road and was created in the memory of the founder and the first guru of Sikh religion, Guru Nanak Dev ji. T was the first time my sister visited the Gurudwara, she finds it very holy and peaceful.

Leh LadakhEveryone was asked to place some dupatta or cloth on the head before entering the Gurudwara and should be wearing full clothes, no shorts and capris were allowed. The man sitting inside the Gurudwara narrated the entire history behind the ancient stone of Gurudwara and how and why the Gurudwara was built. The story was very inspiring. After that, on the way, they stopped to see the Magnetic Hill. It is basically a small stretch of road located about 30kms from Leh Ladakh towards Kargil, one can clearly see the road ahead going uphill. The tour guide with them explained the mysterious story of Magnetic Hill, he said if you turned off the engine of the vehicle and stand it in neutral, it will start moving because of the magnetic force of the hill pulling the vehicles towards them. And so, like every tourist even they tried doing this and find it true to some extent. While some people try this, some people just pass through this place unaware of the Magnetic hill.

Then they all went to experience the new and thrilling experience of River Rafting at6 zanskar River. It is said to one of the wonderful activity on the land of Ladakh. For the River Rafting, they all were taken to the place where they were given all the information about the River rafting and also its prices. Once they all were convinced, they were asked to change the clothes and footwear available for River Rafting. There were three options for River rafting, Rafting for about 25kms, 16kms or 6kms. They opted for the 16kms one and for kids 6kms. After wearing the rafting costumes, they all were dropped on the starting point of the rafting, there the rafting driver explained all the rules to follow while rafting.

Leh LadakhIn the beginning, many were scared and nervous but as the Rafting started, they all got busy enjoying the rafting experience with beautiful scenery. The rafting driver also dropped everyone sitting inside the boat purposely to experience how cold the water of the Zanskar river was. At the end point, they saw was the Sangam point. It was a beautiful view, where you see two different rivers flowing in the same direction but not getting mixed i.e the crystal clear water of the Indus River and the muddy water of Zanskar River. After River rafting they all left for Alchi Monastery were yummy and tasty lunch was waiting for them.

Alchi Monastery is considered as one of the oldest and most architecture Monastery. The major attraction point of this Monastery is its temple having elaborate artwork with wood carving and also the view of huge ancient statues of Buddha. Several monks worship and perform ceremonies inside the temple. The temple entrance door still remains the same with low height and is made up of wood. After worshipping, they left back for Leh i.e. to their Hotel.
