Hall of Fame, Ladhak

Let’s travel today to Hall of Fame Ladhak. I heard about this place time to time when I was in Pune. These places have emotional bonding for an Army brat like me. Hall of Fame is a little yet sublime historical centre built and kept up by Indian Army in Ladakh. It is situated on the Spituk-Kargil street.

It displays things identified with Ladakhi social legacy. The key fascination of the historical centre is that it has shown on memorabilia, seized arms and courtesies of Pakistani Army, life stories and photos of the overcome fighters, and so on. This gallery was worked to recognize the souls of every single incredible trooper who lost their lives in noteworthy Siachin front lines amid Indo-Pak war.

I got little emotional after visiting the memorial and the name of the Army Personals lots their life in Kargil War on the stone carved. Leh and further high altitude areas are very difficult to live with oxygen supply at its lowest level. This place displays how our military personnel have done their best to protect our high altitude frontiers.

it’s the place where our heroes rest. It’s the great place to pay our tribute to all our heroes and pray for their soul to rest in peace forever. I like to request you guys when you visit to remove a good amount of time like 3 to 4 Hours for this place as you get to see a lot of arms and history. I cant describe the army’s glory but this place definitely does. Not only you find a sneak peak of Kargil war, 1971 you also find the wars and battles Ladhakhi people fought for this reason. It gives us a sense of what our soldiers do for our country. Also, its a memorial has been built for our martyrs. This place showcase Ladhaki culture, there struggle, Army achievements and so on.

There is a good stock of Kashmiri art and woollen cloths/shall/sweaters etc at a reasonable price. You can get Comics related to our Heroes who achieved India most respected Pram Veer Chakra and Ashok Chakra etc. do collect and share these stories with the coming generations. Do visit this place once you in Leh City. Cheers!!!

Coldest and Longest Night of Sarchu

It was not our choice to stop at an elevation of over 14,500 ft between the Himalayan mountain passes of BARALACHA LA and LACHLUNG LA. Sarchu was so cold as it was talking to us and saying “Boss aa to gye ho lets check your Aukat (fitness) and endurance”. Many people return to Manali and end their dream of completing the dream journey of Manali to Leh on a bike or by Car. People showing weakness due to mountain sickness, Fever and many more.

After a long trip from Manali (around 8 to 9 hrs), we made a stoppage at Sarchu for one night at Garjha Hill Sight Trekking & Camping camp. They give us a spotless room and worthy administration. nourishment quality was great and staff conduct additionally great. In evenings this is extremely icy and in these conditions, they offered us hot water. The encompassing both inside and outside was appealing and looked after cleanliness.
The camp is located right in the heart of Sarchu. The campsite is close to the highway for easy accessibility.

We reached Sarchu around 8 pm it was already late and very dark we couldn’t see the camps assigned to us. Chilly wind of Himalayan range on our face laughing maybe your journey stop here. As my 2both friends got the symptom of mountain sickness and they started to talk let’s survive this night and if the symptoms continue we will head back to Manali.

It’s not that we are not the strong fact is temperature here averages 0.1 °C. In a year, the average rainfall is 323 mm. which can break anyone sprit for sure. Somehow we said goodnight to all and slept and in the morning saw the Sarchu and its beauty gave us the strength to move forward. Friends were in much better condition after a good sound sleep and we started our journey to Leh leaving behind few groups who stopped at Sarchu and Now returning to Manali.

Sarchu (otherwise called Sir Bhum Chun) is a noteworthy endpoint with rose settlement in the Himalayas on the Leh-Manali Highway, on the limit between Himachal Pradesh and Ladakh (Jammu and Kashmir) in India. It is arranged between Baralacha La toward the south and Lachulung La toward the north, at a height of 4,290 m (14,070 ft).

The best time to visit Sarchu leh ladakh, is between May and September, as it functions as the starting point for treks to ZANSKAR in LADAKH. The summers in Sarchu are hot and are generally avoided by the tourists. The month of April marks the start of summer season and it lasts until July. Sarchu temperature ranges between 4°C to 25°C during these months.

Hope you enjoy the stay in Sarchu but in my opinion its one of the places I would like to stay few nights and enjoy. Cheers !!
