About the event

TOUR OVERVIEW

There is a famous Ladakhi saying that “the land is so barren and the passes so high that only our fiercest enemies or our best friends would want to visit us”.

Ladakh is a heart-warming example of how nature allows life amidst the harshest conditions. And the people in Ladakh are one with nature. When you cross the Khardung La at 5602m (18,379ft) and enter the stupendous Nubra Valley, you understand why it is the heaven on earth. Surrounded by the seemingly impenetrable Himalayas, the valley was once a hotbed of the thriving Trans-Himalayan trade.

The ever changing colors of Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri, make you cry. And we narrate by experience. No religion of the world can give the peace and clarity you get by starting at those ever changing blue waters.

Get to Turtuk, the nearest you can get to LoC in that region and understand the Baltistan culture, distinctly different from the Ladakhi culture.

ITINERARY

Day 1 - 29 Aug 2019

Meet at Delhi airport with your trip lead board the flight. Flying to Leh is a beautiful experience as you get the glimpses of the snow covered peaks from the air. Arrive in Leh. We are ascending from 280m to 4000m during the flight. So today will be only for acclimatising our bodies to the higher altitude. Enjoy the calm of the guest house. Sit and drink your tea in the beautiful garden. Overnight at Leh.

Day 2 - 30 Aug 2019

Ladakh conjures up the image of Buddhist monks praying, smiling and going about their tasks in those beautiful monasteries. Today we try to become a part of it, even if briefly. Sit calmly, pray and be aware of yourselves at the Thiksey and Hemis monasteries. Understand the Ladakhi history and royal lineage at the Stok palace. We can also visit the recently open Central Asian Museum near our stay. Overnight at Leh.

Day 3 - 31 Aug 2019

Khardung-La is the highest civilian motorable road in the world. At 18000 feet, this is one of the most adventurous roads to cross where the snow line is the closest to you. We cross the mighty pass today and enter Nubra, literally, the valley of flowers. The journey is long and winding today and we relax for the rest of the day in the beautiful village surrounded by lush green fields and barren, mighty Himalayas. Overnight at Hunder village.

Day 4 - 01 Sep 2019

We visit Turtuk, which the last village before the LoC. Turtuk was under Pakistan’s control until 1971, after which India gained control of this strategic area. Geographically, Turtuk lies in the Baltistan Region and is one among four such villages in India. Have lunch at a local farm and return to Hunder where we have a joy ride on the double-humped Bactrian Camels on the dunes of Hunder. That’s right! A place where you have Indus, Himalayas, snow and a desert! Overnight at Hunder.

Day 5 - 02 Sep 2019

‘3 Idiots’ made it famous, but for those who love mountains, Pangong Tso has been the lake of pristine solitude. We proceed via the Shyok route and reach the Pangong Lake. Some cozy camping tonight! Overnight near Pangong Lake in comfortable tents.

Day 6 - 03 Sep 2019

Return to Leh after breakfast and relax. In the evening you can take a stroll around Leh and visit the Shanti Stupa for sunset. Overnight at Leh

Day 7 - 04 Sep 2019

We visit an eco school today, to understand how it is possible to live ecologically even in the harsh landscapes on Ladakh. You will be introduced to the pink-coloured butter tea, so loved in Ladakh. We visit the Hall of Fame, a poignant reminder of the bravery, courage and sacrifices of our armed forces. Overnight at Leh.

Day 8 - 05 Sep 2019

Today, we proceed to Tso Moriri, another high altitude lake of Ladakh region. Like Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri is also a Ramsar site hosting rare migratory and local birds. Enjoy the tranquility at the lesser known but equality beautiful glacial lake. Overnight on the banks of Tso Moriri.

Day 9 - 06 Sep 2019

We return to Leh via Kozak monastery today and take it easy for the rest of the day. Enjoy the cultural program at the guest house. Overnight at Leh.

Day 10 - 07 Sep 2019

For the thrill seekers, there is another opportunity today. To raft on the Zanskar is both adventurous and strangely calming. Witness the colours of the rocks changing as you negotiate rapids and reach the confluence of Indus and Zanskar, covering 28 kms. Rafting is optional and at extra cost. If time and energy permits, visit the Army Gurudwara and the Magnetic Hill. Shop for the rest of the day or just laze around.

Day 11 - 08 Sep 2019

Catch the flight back after breakfast. And chatter non-stop about the trip! Trip ends, memories won’t.
