Sometimes a trip gets planned without any planning at all. This is what happened with me last Friday. One of my friends was booking his flight tickets to Kolkata when he noticed an offer on Indigo airlines website. Offer was to travel anywhere in India between July and September at a special discounted rate. Rates when we checked indeed were very lucrative and got us immediately interested. Now the big question was to visit where and when. Our first thoughts were to go visit Goa but it was completely sold out. After checking several other places, we finally settled on flying to Leh, a group of six people. We were able to book the flight from Delhi to Leh and return for a total of Rs. 4500, (Rs. 3000 for Delhi to Leh and Rs. 1500 for return flight).
I have visited Ladakh several times before but this will be the first time that I will be flying to Leh. Amazing part is that I already have plans for a road trip to Leh in July so it seems I will be visiting there twice this year, once by road in first week of July and then again by flight in first week of September. I actually wanted to book flight for late in December or early July as I have never visited Ladakh in winter but the offer was only for the months of June till September. Nevertheless, visiting Ladakh is always something that I look forward to, no matter how, when or how many times.
