VIDEO: Seasons Change & Magic Happens In Ladakh!
Words By Jovita Elveera Mendonca
Ladakh. It is where every day brings in something magical along with it. Be it the icy-cold winds brushing your skin or the sun’s warmth trying to balance it out for you. Or even simple things like walking in a meadow surrounded by the Himalayan ranges or stargazing as you relax on the porch. Every thing, every single day, can charm you in a way that you’d find yourself questioning if it really is for real.
This is Ladakh.
And it is where magic happens.
Apart from this, there’s yet another thing that will blow your mind away! Ladakh’s changing seasons drastically transforms its landscape, and a new Ladakh is born. The following video is our humble attempt at capturing the sheer magic of Ladakh’s seasonal changes at TUTC’s Chamba Camp at Diskit & Thiksey. This video shall give you a gist of why TUTC chose to set up their glamping tents at Ladakh and why glamping at 12,000 feet can be overwhelming!
