Day One: Tickets To Paradise
Arrive in Leh (Altitude 11,500 ft.)
You will arrive at the Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport (Leh Airport) which is nestled in the midst of The Mighty Himalayan Mountain Range. Leh Airport; one of the highest airports in the world is also considered to be one of the most scenic owing to its heavenly surroundings. It is encircled by immense golden brown, barren mountains which are truly a sight for sore eyes.
Arrive at your cozy accommodation in Leh city, where our representative will assist you with the check-in procedure and show you to your room.
The rest of the day is reserved for you to acclimatize yourself by casually strolling in and around your lodgings only. Overnight stay at Leh City. The capital of Ladakh, at one time, was a major stop on the Asian “Silk Route”.
Day Two: Being Local in Leh
Leh Local Sightseeing (50 km / 3-4 hrs – oneway)
Explore the gorgeous town of Leh and its beautiful stopovers. Most prominent among them is the Leh Palace. The ruins of this 350-year-old, nine-story high Palace offer a breath-taking view of the city of Leh and its surroundings. The Leh Market is starkly different from its metropolitan counterparts. The shops here are small, colourful, and vibrant. It has a rare mix of western and native cultures which is unique to itself.
Leh also boasts of a widely diverse population and shows their influences on its infrastructure. The Shanti Stupa, Jama Masjid, Zorawar Fort, Gurudwara Shri Pathar Sahib, and Magnetic Hill all lie within 25 km of Leh’s radius. Also within this radius is the Indian Army’s Hall of Fame Museum with Sound & Light Show. It is a monument dedicated to the soldiers who served, and/or perished on the borders during wartime.
The Sangam (Confluence of rivers) between the ice-cold Zanskar and the mighty Indus is incredible to watch. Its gushing blue waters put on a stunning display of power. Once you’ve absorbed in all these wonderful sights you will return to Leh and spend the night there.
Day Three: On Top of the World
Leh to Nubra Valley via Khardung La 17,582 ft. (127 km / 4-5 hrs)
After an early breakfast, you’ll check-out & head to Nubra Valley. The road to the Nubra Valley goes through the 11th highest motor-able road in the world, the mighty Khardung La Pass (17,582 ft.). This Pass is almost permanently covered in fog and snow. However, the bone-chilling cold there is more than compensated by the unparalleled view that it offers, of the Ladakh mountain range. Descending down from Khardung La you’ll arrive in Nubra Valley.
On arrival, you’ll first visit Diskit Monastery. It is over 250 years old and is the oldest monastery in Nubra Valley. Next to that lies an imposing 100 feet statue of Maitreya Buddha, in its resplendent golden avatar. From here drive to the sand dunes at Hunder where you can spot the world-famous double hump camels’ longing on the desert. These mammals are extremely rare and are found in merely a handful of places all over the world. You can also go on an ATV ride on the sand dunes or try go-karting (all on direct payment basis).
Later check-in at your accommodation & spend the evening looking up at the skies. The pollution-free air of Ladakh offers ample opportunity for stargazing.
Day Four: Head For The Border
Nubra Valley: Day trip to Turtuk/Thang (95 km / 3 hrs – oneway)
After an early breakfast, you’ll drive towards Thang (Zero Point), the northernmost tip of India. Thang is one of the villages closest to the LOC that tourists are allowed to visit. This is as far north as you can get in India.
Turtuk is a tiny village set on a hilltop on the rocky banks of the Shyok River. Loaded with plenty of hidden sites only approachable on foot. While time has not touched the exquisiteness of this place, the friendly nature of its residents is hard to miss. Even though the primary trade of Turtuk is agriculture, it can be seen that all around the village there are beautiful statues and intricate handicrafts made by the locals of the village. It is also one of the last towns in India to still have prominent Balti Culture. The village is widely known for its apricot trees. Be sure to buy some apricots and try their authentic apricot-based stew before heading back to Hunder for the night.
Day Five: Where the Heart Is
Nubra Valley to Tso Pangong (13,943 ft.) via Shyok River (170 km / 5-7 hrs)
After an early breakfast, drive towards Tso Pangong 13,943 ft. via Shyok. This route goes via Agham – Shyok Village – Durbuk – Tangste to reach Pangong Tso. The first glimpse of the tranquil, azure blue waters and shaky lakeshore of Tso Pangong remains etched in the memory of tourists.
The magic of Pangong Lake lies in its changing hues, as the sun hovers over it. It is probably the bluest and the most crystal-clear lake you would have seen so far. It is home to many migratory birds, from ducks and geese to the rare and elusive Black-necked Crane. What will surprise you is that the lake lies only partially in India, its major chunk lying in China.
In winter the entire lake freezes to the point where you can walk over it. Upon arrival you’ll check-in at your accommodation and spend the rest of the evening strolling around the lake, taking in the beautiful scenery.
Day Six: A Lifetime of Memories
Tso Pangong to Leh via Chang La 17,585 ft. (175 km / 7-8 hrs)
After breakfast, take some parting shots with the lake. You will then head back to Leh via Chang-La pass (17,585 ft.). Chang-La pass is the 10th highest motor-able road in the world. On your way back, you’ll first stop at Tso Ltak, an unexplored lake at 16,102 ft. situated on the foothills of Chang La.
From here drive to Hemis Monastery which existed before the 11th century. It is one of the oldest and richest monasteries in all of Ladakh and is definitely a must-visit on your Ladakh Adventure. Later visit Thiksey Monastery. It is located at the top of the hill. It is very famous for its similarity with Potala Palace of Lhasa. This monastery is famous for pilgrim activities, architectural elements, sightseeing, and exploration.
Stop at the Druk Padma Karpo School. This is the school we saw in the movie ‘3 idiots’. Rancho’s School. From here, it’s a non-stop drive to your hotel in Leh, the rest of the evening is at your own leisure.
Day Seven: Julley Ladakh
End of tour: Check-out
Post breakfast, check-out & depart for Leh Airport where you’ll board the flight to your onward destination.
