Sparkle #67: Leh Ladakh Road Signs

Aloha everyone! Have you heard of the breathtakingly beautiful region of Leh & Ladakh? Ladakh is a part of the mountainous state of Jammu & Kashmir, India, and a visit to the region will leave you mesmerized and speechless. A landscape dotted with amazing peaks, flowing rivers, mighty glaciers and bright blue skies – nature at its untamed best! Add to it the simple lifestyle, Buddhist culture (Ladakh is known to have the largest number of monasteries), rich food and you have a recipe for the most amazing travel experience ever!

I was very fortunate to visit this magical land in August 2013, and will share memories from my trip in a post soon! This trip touched my soul, giving me tremendous happiness and peace; it even inspired the name for this blog!

The picturesque landscape of Leh & Ladakh is best discovered via a road trip. And the extremely funny but meaningful road signs placed by the Indian Border Roads Organisation across the entire route add an interesting highlight to the trip.

These road signs have inspiring messages of all sorts – from road safety warnings to life quotes. In today’s travel tales post, I am sharing some of my favorite road signs from the routes of Leh & Ladakh. Hope you find these funny, inspirational and relevant for your next road trip!
