The Ladakh Marathon

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle -

In 2012, Pervin Batli­wala, 61, a former ex­ec­u­tive sec­re­tary of a multi­na­tional com­pany, ran the Ladakh Half Marathon, hop­ing to dis­cover a new place. “It took us two days to ac­cli­ma­tise to the cli­mate. Once we found our­selves com­fort­able, we went out and ex­plored the place,” says Batli­wala, who vis­ited the Nubra Val­ley, the Pan­gong Lake and Khardung La, which is the high­est point in Ladakh. “Run­ning a marathon there is a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence, as the land­scape changes ev­ery few kilo­me­tres,” she says.
