Time for wonderful dreaming! Where would I want to be in the world coming fortnight?
July and August are the perfect months to visit remote Ladakh, high up in the Western Himalayas of India.
Almost isolated from October to May, Ladakh comes to life when the snow melts on the roads to its capital Leh. It is a long ride but one of the most beautiful road trips I have ever made. And once arrived, the reward is immense: spectacular moon-like landscape, blue lakes, high altitude passes, friendly monks and buddhist temples, both near the capital and in the surrounding valleys.
And the more active can go rafting on the Indus or Zanskar rivers, ride the highest vehicle-accessible pass in the world (altough there is some dispute about this) on a motorcycle or go trekking into the remote valleys.
Reaching Ladakh can either be done by road or by flight, which is also truly breathtaking.

Wonderful Wednesday is a biweekly series of places, festivals, destinations, hikes, etc etc where I would like to be in the world the coming 14 days, if no restrictions would apply.
