It was a long landing mate, I touched down late because of tail wind ps landing was smooth, Usually when we are landing at Leh, the key rule is you keep your speed minimum as the airport is at 10000ft when you are overhead the airport (16500) ft followed by left turn (for left downwind) as you are descending in end of downwind, base and finals, it’s key to keep a constant eye for speed.

I turned off the gpws mate 😹😆.
