Himalayan rendezvous with Maitreiya Apr 05, 2011
If you are looking to get up close and personal with the mighty Himalayas, a road trip is the order of the day.

If you are not driving yourself, I recommend a home-grown tour operator like Maitreiya to ferry you around. The proprietor DORJEY DAYA is one of the most helpful and patient itinerary planners you will find, who will be happy to detail out a plan that promises to cover most of the Himalayas from Ladakh.

Right from picking you up at the airport in Srinagar or train station in Jammu, you will find yourself amidst awe inspiring beauty and magnificent landscape.

If you are lucky, you'll be ferried around by Tashi an earnest young musician who doubles up as your driver and guide. He is happy to take you through the more scenic route and halt for impromptu picnics amidst wild horses grazing or by a lake full of swans.

The trip which took us via Kargil, Drass to Mublek a small village to halt for a night in a homestay. It's an ideal halt to get used to the altitude before proceeding to Leh via Alchi and other key sites. Leh itself is charming... even more so with the pretty guest house with rooms overlooking several snowy peaks.

An overnight trip to the white sands in the Nubra Valley and another couple of days at Pangong by the bluest of icy lakes in the mountain range is enough to inspire you to change your domicile and seek citizenship there.

Saying goodbye is bittersweet, because there is still a whole long way to go - past the famous Sarchu plains to Keylong, another beautiful halt enroute to Manali.

Manali of course is touristy and a bit of a wake up call from the serene magic of the sparsely populated mountains, but pretty all the same.

Sonam Guest house - Nubra. over looking the Diskit Maitreya Buddha statue. wonderful location. recently constructed.
run by lovely middle-aged couple(both are School teachers) .
Food is home cooked - awesome. vegetables fresh from kitchen garden. they organize a momo party also at night. very affordable.
bathrooms and rooms very nicely maintained and cleaned.
authentic Ladakhi cuisine served if asked for.
the lady is a very good in cooking Parathas and North Indian food also.

we stayed at 300rs/day rate. food was 150Rs/person/per day. rates fluctuate according to number of tourist in that particular week. subject to change.

located on main road(highway).
ample parking space.
very nice view.
cosy rooms.
best for families and single lady travellers.
rooms have huge windows and a great view.
kitchen is very big and very traditional.

the best part we enjoyed was d vegetable momos(never thought vegetable momos will be so tasty. it seems they taste heavenly because of the fresh cabbage and carrots)

do try this place.
