Hot tea is the best antidote to chilling winds. But ever tried hot butter tea? The tea here is boiled with salt and baking soda. Then a large lump of butter made from yak milk is added. This salted tea is certainly something different and it can warm you as you sip it and watch the world go by. Some of the best butter tea can be had at the Hemis monastery, do don’t forget to try it when you visit there. It’s definitely one of the things to do in Leh Ladakh.
