    Leh Berry... try it!

    Leh Berry is a fruit juice made from berry called seabuckthorn - whatever this is. It's sweet and really good and - if you read the back of the package - it says that it has many properties, including anti-aging & anti- oxidant properties. Anti aging??? As soon as I noticed it I started drinking galls of it, just in case it really works. It's also believed to be an energiser and memory strenghtener... another plus, I guess

    Ladakh festival

    by 900triple Written Jan 1, 2005
    Ladakh Festival

    The Ladakh Festival runs from the beggining of September for two weeks. Must see is the procession from Sanker to the polo ground - with representatives of most of the local and regional villages, dressed up in costume and with music. This really is a cultural and sensory overload. Everything from the polo team to Budhist Monks to school children. Over the next 2 weeks there are a number of cultural activities - archery, polo, dancing and music. The best bit is that its done by the Ladakhis for the Ladakhis and not the toursists.
    Around the beginning of August there is a mini version in Sanker.
