This Day That Year - 22nd July 2007

Day 8

Time to leave Leh...the drive to Drass begins - via Kargil. We stop over at a Buddha Temple. And don't stop at the famous Lamayuru monastery. Instead we click away from the car. Mountains look like kneaded clay now. Unfortunately, Kargil comes and goes in the darkness. Time for another punctured tyre and hence a not so needed break. Parul is down with asthma again and today it's worse. We finally reach Drass at 11:00 pm and there's Army hospitality waiting at the Vikram Batra Transit Camp. They're obviously not happy at our extremely late arrival but they play the perfect hosts. We're put up for the night. It's freezing cold!
