Sometimes you need to take the leap of faith. In 2010, it was my very first time in Leh. I simply had a calling. La Ultra - The High needed to be done. I had spent over a decade of my life in the mountains, 4 years in Mussoorie in a boarding school called Wynberg-Allen and then in Pokhara, Nepal, while studying medicine at Manipal College of Medical Sciences.
Below is a slideshow showing our journey from first time in Leh to getting to start line of La Ultra - The High. Pics courtesy Akhil or me :) Please click for next picture.
