I have been to Leh once, but this place is so amazing, and even more beautiful than Ladakh. I heard WA say that it more rustic than Ladakh and truly it is. It is not as commercialised as Ladakh. Hats off to Wanderers for making such a trip with such wonderful experience in this area. We went with them for LOW 2015 and this year to Spiti and they have always been amazing. Thank you WA Team
