Discussion on Leh

spanakoriso :

I listen to Greek music. I sometimes hear the lyric "leh-leh-ee" or "ya-leh-leh-ee" in Greek songs. I'm guessing these words are Turkish in origin. What does it mean?

JD night! :
"a"
Dolphin Lover :
"im half greek and half turkish and my family listens do this music a lottttt. leh-leh ee is just something they do when they party.they do it at weddings too its kinda like a good luck party.thing"
wize woman :
"1."Leh"=Pole or Polish. 2."Leh"=behalf. 3. leh-leh-lee--Only the lyrycs writer knows."
Fugitiveangel :
"I'm Turkish and those are not actual words; it's just a way of singing, it has no meaning whatsoever in Turkish;)"
GrahamH :
"I speak both Greek and Turkish and do not recognise these syllables as having any meaning. I suspect they are similar to English "la la la" or "Fol-di-rol" - in otherwords, meaningless sounds just to fill in the tune!!"
Earthling :
"It's not a word in Turkish. Maybe, it's just a sound like lalalalala."
ronnie_dj4u :

I'm planning to travel to leh-Ladakh in December end (that's the only time I can go there)... I want to know of any good treks which can be done at that time, any links or resources are welcome...

ikki :
"visit"
pankajn :
"I am also planning to go at that time , but weather is really unfriendly at that time , Min -14C, Max -5C , you can check for details on treks and adventure sports."
Sybaris :

Can anyone tell me exactly which year Leh airport in Ladakh was built, please?

Swapan, the Dream :
"Most probably 1978 Call them and confirm Telephone 91-1982-53043 (O), 91-1982-52429 (R) Fax 91-1982-53043"
Richa Sharma :
"I think you will get this answer from this site. I am busy so cant find your answer there please see and if you get answer mail me "
ceewill :
"I have spent way too much time on this but for very little reward unfortunately - I just cannot find the definitive answer for you!! However, I can tell you that it was in use in 1963 but I suspect only for military/government personnel - more general tourism to this geopolitically sensitive area is more recent: "until 1979 there was no regular civilian flight into Ladakh due to the defence oriented policy of the Indian government." * My source for the 1963 date is here: Sorry I can't be more helpful."
