India Gets its First Natural Ice Cafe And It’s Time to Chill, Literally!

With a searing heat wave taking over most parts of India, there is an ‘Ice Cafe’ in Ladakh that may become a retreat for us this summer.

Where is it?

This latest tourist attraction at a height of around 14,000 feet is located in Gya, a village in Leh (Manali-Leh Highway). This cafe was created by a natural process by the Border Road Organisation officials and some locals during winters.

P.S. Plan a trip to Ladakh before this dazzling structure melts away.

What to expect?

Visit this beautiful cafe and enjoy a nice cup of hot tea or coffee along with Ngamthuk- Ladakhi barley soup or noodles. Also, if you are an adventure junkie, climb to the top of the massive ice stupa with the help of a carved scalable path.

The inspiration behind this stupa?

The concept of the ice stupa was coined by Sonam Wangchuk, a noted engineer and innovator from Ladakh. Its chief intent is to save water in winter and use it later for irrigation, once the ice melts in spring.

So, are you ready to visit this ‘coolest’ hangout place?
