Leh Ladakh Tour in 2020 and 2021

From the Inception of the year 2020 , everything seems not sane and Sound for the whole world as same for the Ladakh as well . Because in this year , from one side whole world including ladakh is inundated into the fatal and baneful contagious illness CoVID and from other side , ladakh is inaurgably sandwiched into indo China tension , clasping of this tension seems to be unending in this year. While during the adventurous and enjoyments , the things that make these two things more exciting are congestions and close to and fro talks but unfortunately these conditions are against the preciousnary measures of contagious illness CoVID . So if we don’t follow measures , it will halt us more . No congestions and other things of enjoyments will not clasp the tourism wholly but will definitely quench the pleasure and privilege of the joy and enjoyment. Which will not sooth us perfectly as we get primarily (means without CoVID ). So it’s hard to beat the CoVID wave without taking preciousnary measures or joinings congestions. Also presently india is in 2nd wave of contagious disease , which will not be short without fatal properties.On other side , there is straight and high intensity tension on the borders between India and China . Which is definitely high Dangerous in joining ladakh. The most thoughtful and mind throbing keenness is , the tension is close the hotspot tourist destination ladakh , which will protrude not only fair in the populace of tourists but also will Slough the beauty of enjoyment from the tourist destination. Which seems less living and mixed in the nature of joy pleasure
