Some spots along the Leh-Alchi-Lamayaru route

The first one would be the Hall of Fame Museum, located just on the outskirts of Leh and maintained by the Indian Army is a treasure house of information on warfare and culture  in Ladhak  during  the past 1000 years. Good place to buy some souvenirs at a reasonable cost.

The Pathar Sahib Gurudwar. Built at a Spot where Nanak Sahib mediated and tamed a local demon. The atmosphere inside is great. At lunch time, a sumptuous lunch is served. 

The Confluence of the river Zanskar and the Indus . Here is  where all the excitement of rafting on the Indus takes place

The Magnetic Hill-An unbelievable phenomenon. The vehicle in neutral gear parked in a down slope actually moves up-simply unbelievable                                       

Crossing Alchi and on the way to Lamayaru are these strange  formations in the hills called moonscapes. Do they resemble the  moon surface?
