    I enjoyed visiting every place I visited! Learned something new every time. I will note that one Monastery was closed for the Season the Sunday we were planning to visit. It was near the glacier.

    Pongong lake has excellent scenery and weather at this time of the year. The road from Leh is presently under repairs and hence the ride can be quite bumpy. No other activity is allowed in the lake.
