First steps on Khardungla Road

Leh / Ladakh – Day 2

Well, I pissed no blood this morning and my inner organs seem fine, so my acclimatization run yesterday was not so bad. I woke up last night with huge headache, but this is normal in this height and within a few days also this should be gone.

I will run this nice stairs now every morning so I can also see my daily improvement in the acclimatization process. On the top in the small temple is a nice Buddha statue which I will visit on my daily morning climb. No idea if it helps on my run, but at least it will not have a bad influence here in this Buddhism holy country.

When you run on this road it is easy to forget that you have to run also all the way back. Carrying plenty of water is a must on these runs here at this altitude.
