Ladakh: Day 17

Mountains & Monasteries itinerary:

"Today we take a pleasant hike down the Lower Stok Valley, a beautiful gorge of geological beauty with upturned layers of green and red and occasional herds of Blue Sheep dancing across the precarious cliff sides opposite the trail. We'll also pass under the ruins of old Stok fortifications set high above the trail that once prevented invaders from coming down through the narrow valley. We make our way down to the village of Stok and return to Leh, a delightful end to a fantastic journey."
