While moving from Nubra valley to Leh in our car, the landscape changed a little – from bare, rugged terrain of mountains to something green. A dash of orange colour in those greens caught my eye and I asked the driver what it was. ‘Leh berry’ was his answer. I was intrigued with the lined up shrubs and how beautiful they looked against those bare mountains and hence went on to ask if they were edible, how they tasted, was anything was made out of them, etc. etc.
