When exploring Ladakh, be a traveler not tourist!

DAY 01 – Arrive Leh

You will be accompanied with KareVoyage Travel buddy from Delhi  airport.

Upon arrival our local representative will meet us and transfer the  members to the Hotel for Check in. Acclimatize for the day, this is  very crucial so that your body gets acclimatize to the sudden change  in altitude. Our local representative will visit you again in the evening  to ensure that you are doing perfectly fine.

Overnight at hotel in Leh.

DAY 02 – Leh Excursion

Your second day in Ladakh will also be spent in Leh to continue with the acclimatization process. However, on this day you’ll be taking a tour of the beautiful city and its surrounding areas.

Located around 35 Km away from Leh town, the point of confluence of the mighty Indus and Zanskar Rivers is your first stop for the day. The different shades of green of the two rivers’ water are distinctly visible with bare eyes, making it a place worth visiting during your stay in Leh.

You can either choose to drive down to the exact point of confluence, maybe enjoy the view with a cup of steaming hot tea, or you could also get a bird’s eye view of the confluence from a vantage point. Depending on which time of the year you visit, you’ll notice how different both rivers look individually, leading up to their meeting point.

A very popular tourist attraction in Leh, Magnetic Hill is technically a small stretch of road on the Leh-Kargil Highway. It is popularly known to be a spot where gravitational forces can be defied, due to a so-called magnetic pull from the surrounding mountains. Although this spot has maintained its popularity among tourists, there is not much truth to what happens here.

The landscape of the surrounding mountains and slopes is such that, to our eyes, it looks like the road is sloping uphill, but in reality the road slopes downhill making cars roll down even on neutral gear. But having said that, it’s a great spot to stop by for a while and get a good look at the stunning landscape.

DAY 03 – LEH SIGHTSEEING

Explore Shay Palace, Hemis Monastery, Thiksey Monastery and Leh Market. Relax and unwind yourself at one of the best resorts of Leh. Visit Leh Market which is a colorful, bustling market in the city center and the perfect place to spend a leisurely evening strolling through its narrow alleys. The market is home to shops selling all kinds of local products – from fresh produce to souvenirs and handicraft items.

Pick up Tibetan prayer flags and wheels or silver jewelry, taste local dry fruits like apricots, figs, and walnuts, and end the day with a meal at one of the many cafes lining the street.

DAY 04 – Leh/NubraValley (148 Kms/6 hrs)

Post breakfast we drive to Nubra Valley. The road journey from Leh to  Nubra Valley passes over Khardung La (The Highest Motorable Road  In The World) at 5,602 Mtrs / 18,390 Ft, around 39 km from Leh. From  the pass, one can see all the way south over the Indus valley to  seemingly endless peaks and ridges of the Zanskar range, and north  to the giants of the Saser massif. Nubra Valley is popularly known as  Ldumra or the valley of flowers. It is situated in the north of Ladakh  between the Karakoram and Ladakh ranges of the Himalayas. The  average altitude of the valley is 10,000 Ft. above sea level.

Upon arrival in Nubra we check in at our Camp in Hunder relax and  get refreshed. In the evening we drive to Hunder where you have  opportunity to ride on a bacterian camel (double humped) amidst  the sand dunes of this high-altitude desert with snowcapped  mountains on the horizon. Between Hunder and Diskit you come  across sand dunes besides the road. It is indeed a strange sight since  immediately on the leG of the road are Rocky Mountains that  characterize the Ladakhi landscape and in the distance, can be seen  snow-capped mountains. Dinner and overnight at the Camp.

DAY 05 – Nubra to Turtuk and back (80 Kms one way/7-8 hrs.)

After breakfast drive towards Turtuk border village that sits on the  crossroad of Himalayan and Karakoram ranges overlooking the Shyok  river is home to the people of Balti tribe with its unique culture and  tradition. Baltis are also known for their sumptuous cuisine. The  village was used to be under Pakistani occupation until 1971 when  India won it back in a fierce war fought against the Pakistani army.  Atop the village you also get a view of Pakistani side of the border.  Almost every family is divided and some of the relatives now reside  on the other side of the border. You would get some of your best  shots here in Turutk. The place is also known for quality apricots and  sword dance which they perform on important occasions and  marriages. As someone rightly said that “only smiles are sweeter  than apricot in Turtuk”. Drive back to Nubra and overnight in  Hotel/camp.

DAY 06 – Nubra Valley to Pangong Lake via Shayok Valley (150 Kms/5-6hours)

After an early breakfast leave for Pangong Lake via Shayok Valley,  probably one of the scenic landscapes as you drive across river  shayok for most part of your journey. Reach Pangong Lake, situated  at 14,000 feet (4,267 m). The lake is bisected by the international  border between India and China. The lake became a rage with Indian  tourists aGer Amir shot the climax of his film 3 idiot and Ladakh  became a destination overnight. On a sunny day the reflection of the  sky makes the color of lake look turquoise blue in contrast with the  earthy mountains to make pictures look unreal and surreal. Enjoy the  landscape in the back drop of the Lake. One rarely feels so close to  nature and environment and the scenery is unforgettable. Evening at  leisure and overnight stay at the camp near lake.

DAY 07 – Pangong to Leh (155Kms/5-6 hrs)

Explore the lake area early in the morning as you would get some  good images. AGer breakfast drive back to Leh via Changla, Karoo  before finally arriving the town.

Drop back at the hotel. Overnight at hotel in Leh.
