As we couldn't wish for better Snow Leopard sighting, we decided to return to Leh the next day. This way we could add an extra day to our trip to Tso-Kar lake, that lays at 4500 meters. It's 200 kms from the city, but it took 8 hours for us to reach it.

On the way, after long search we could see one Solitary Snipe.

Rock slide on the road. It took 15 mins to clear it.

Frozen sulphur spring.

Such landscapes worsened my homesickness.

The pass at 4930 meters we had to cross. This is a photo on the way back. The sudden snowfall forced us back one day earlier. We feared to get stuck in there.
