Thursday Challenge : Outdoors

This week’s theme at Thursday Challenge is Outdoors.

This was our camping site at West Ladakh in Uletokpo, Ladakh.

Staying in a camping tent was one exhilarating moment! The Indus river flowed wildly between our camp and the big rocky mountain! It was some awesome view!! 
The tent had 2 beds with a side table and an attached bathroom. A set up which took us some what back to the basics. Of course, the bath had showers and hot water supply. A battery operated table lamp lit the tent at night. And the weather was simply heavenly.
Behind our tent, a stream of water was flowing and one morning, we (the women, of course!) couldn’t resist the temptation of washing clothes by the stream, despite having clothes which could last us for a month!!

If you’re looking for solitude, serenity, and real peace and quiet, a camping trip in the mountains is the answer.

  1. WOW !!! This is fab…such an awesome way to peace and serenity. Love this tent. 🙂

    I am just searching my archives, when I see that you’ve already posted… 😉

  2. Fantastic!! You get one with nature and feel so serene. Back to basics is lot more joyful and fun than all our luxuries. It shows that when you wanted to wash clothes by the stream even when you had ample to wear for the next 1 month!! The tent looks so cozy by the way 🙂 to sleep during the nights with the constant flowing of water in the background would have been a soothing music
