The Curse Of The Creators Love Land (Ladakh)

“To live will be an awfully big adventure”

 – Peter Pan

I’ve had this desire to visit Ladakh ever since a friend showed me pictures of his road trip to; “The Creators Love Land’. From that day this magical place casted a spell over me and unknowingly I fell in its web of wonder for eternity.

All I’d do was to stare at the pictures of Ladakh from dusk to dawn, admire its measureless beauty and satisfy my urge to be there.

3 years down the line, the situation got worse and I could not hold on to this obsession any further. I would just randomly zone out and all I’d think about was to reach Ladakh.

Thinking that this was the only way out, I dropped out of college during my last semester and started working to satisfy this mad, uncontrollable urge of being there.

August 2015, I embarked for this dream trip. I had the time of my life, felt that I had overcome all my urges. But, to my surprise the post travel effects are equally worse.

Ladakh had casted a spell over me. A curse, I feel would last for eternity! Now I am lost again. I’m trapped in my memories of this place. Lost in pictures and videos from dusk to dawn again, teleporting myself back in time.

Ladakh feels like a never ending drug effect I’m madly hooked on to. Every time I hear this name “Ladakh” or see a prayer flag on an automobile, I immediately travel back in time imagining all those impeccable places I was at and those lovely people who’d randomly greet me and the beautiful peeps who became my friends.

The land where strangers felt like family, where religion, race, etc, did not matter and people were just open hearted. The land which made me realize that there lays another world in this human-eat-human society where people are good, willing to help each other and happy in their own paradise.

❤ Ladakhhhhh ^_^

Wait !!!

Opps !!! Sorry, I guess I zoned out again 😀

  1. Dear Ken Agarwal,
    Read your blog about Ladakh.
    It’s very informative and seems genuine.
    I mean because I’ve never been there.
    I want to go there with family on my xuv in june 2016.
    I want to ask if you can provide me so more information regarding the same.
    I’m mad about Ladakh since last 10 years.
    You help will mean a lot to me.
    Regards.

  2. Ladakh is truly mesmerizing. At few places I even had tears of joy looking at the beautiful nature, thinking that I was just to be there and also reaching there solo on motorcycle :-).
    After reaching back home for weeks I was in trance and thought about Ladakh. Even now after couple of months since I finished the trip, I still think about Ladakh and dream about my next trip.

    Great pics and article Ken. It was pleasure to meet you on the trip. Had great time in your company. Best of luck for your future adventures.

    Cheers!!!
