What to Do during Acclimatization Period in Leh? Visit Picturesque Ganglas

Acclimatization is necessary before exploring Ladakh. But acclimatization does not mean sitting idle. Roam around in Leh (3,452 meters). 

For example, you can visit Ganglas / Gangles during acclimatization period in Leh, the entry point to Ladakh.

Ganglas (3,800 meters), about 12 kilometers from Leh , sits by the side of the Khardung La highway. Lateral moraines can be spotted around the village. The Ganglas Chu, a mountain brook, freezes in December. Indian Army built a micro hydro power project (4,091 meters) at Ganglas, probably the highest hydro project, to meet its power needs.
