Day 9 back to Leh

The lake changes colour and we were surprised by the early morning hues. Back on the road, we saw marmots.

We stopped at Tangste monastery which was surrounded by rocks and prayer flags.

On the way to Leh we visited Norbu, who uses yak milk from his parents herd to make cheese in a French style, which he sells to Leh hotels. The cheese is stored in a cellar and smelled amazing. We were impressed with the combination of tradition of yak herding and addressing the new tourist market.
