The traveling section of “Incredible India“ is a work in progress.
Under “Traveling India“, I am posting the articles as I write them. Soon to come are more impressions from the Indian Himalaya, especially Leh and the Nubra Valley, and from Rajasthan.

Leh Ladakh, India – enjoying the travellers advantage to the full: food for all tastes, henna art, interesting social encounters, spiritual opportunities, salt in your tea and buying air ticket with cash.
Mangyal Tsemo Monastery in Leh is a great historical-religious site. After a rigorous climb with breathtaking views, you encounter yet another example of Buddhist nature-culture merge – multiple-armed Buddhas and demons, flags and totems.
Shanti Stupa Leh with adjacent temples, towering over Leh to the north, are magnificent Buddhist modern holy sites. Breathtaking views, beautiful art, Arduous climb. Visit concluded with unstructured luxurious shanti time with chai and momos at a zula down the “Israeli Road’.
Manu temple in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, is the only temple for Manu, the first man. Like Noah, he was the only man saved from the Big Flood, to restart humanity. He was also the first law-giver and saved the vedas from the flood during his seventh reincarnation.
