A trip to the Himalayas always seem to send an adrenalin rush through your body. And this adrenalin rush increases even before you set foot on the Himalayas. Personally, I have been many times to the Western Himalayas, but have always reached there by road. Hence, a new experience awaited me when I took the flight from Delhi to Jammu to Leh.
Delhi to Jammu was fairly uneventful, but things took a ‘U’ turn when the plane left Jammu and made its way to Leh. The aircraft was flying at 21,000 feet, but the land was not more than 4,000 feet below as we were flying right above the mighty Himalayas.
It was a maze of white as we flew over the tall peaks and glaciers of the Western Himalayas. It felt like the aircraft had stopped and we were floating above this heavenly sight. These aerial views set the tone for the Himalayan visit and sends your heart racing. These views stay right on till you reach the Leh airport. One should definitely experience these views even if you do not get the opportunity to land in the Western Himalayas.
