Overview Overview

Ladakh is not just a destination, but a dream in itself. The place is filled with vast barren landscapes, surreal high altitude lakes, snow covered mountain peaks, beautiful Buddhist monasteries and an insight into a different life and culture of Ladakhi people.

Our 8 nights 9 days Engaging Leh Ladakh with Turtuk and Kargil aims to showcase the real beauty of Ladakh so that you can take in every essence of the place.

We start our journey from Leh, which is the capital city of Ladakh. Leh is known for its Buddhist sites and nearby trekking areas. Massive 17th-century Leh Palace, modeled on the Dalai Lama’s former home (Tibet’s Potala Palace), overlooks the old town’s bazaar and mazelike lanes.

There are some famous places to explore in the city of Leh such as Spituk Monastery, which is one of the oldest monasteries in Leh, dating back to the 11th century. Experience the confluence of two massive rivers, Indus and Zanskar, while in Leh.

From Leh we head off to Nubra Valley after crossing Khardungla Pass, which is the highest motorable road in the world, which is located at an altitude of 3,048mts. It is a high altitude cold desert, which means it has scant vegetation and green cover. Wherever your eyes go, you’ll see vast barren lands, covered with sands and rocks which gives it a surreal look. 

Diskit Monastery is the oldest and largest monastery in the Nubra Valley, with origins going back to the 14th century. Diskit Gompa is also famous for the statue of a protector deity (Kali) holding the head and arm of a medieval Mongol soldier.

Turtuk is one of the northernmost villages of India, and is situated in the Leh district, Ladakh. Turtuk falls in Baltistan- the place was under Pakistani control till 1971, so it is predominantly Muslim. Don't miss the chance to interact with the locals and their friendly behaviour - the whole feel is like being in Pakistan. It is surrounded by the famous Karakoram ranges and trek from a nearby village, Hunder is also possible.

Pangong Lake is situated at an altitude of 4,350mts and is a saline lake. It is 134kms long and extends from India into China. The lake is so beautiful and serene with its calm, glimmering blue water, that many Bollywood movies have been shot here, most famous being 3 Idiots. The crystal clear waters of the lake shine in many shades of blue depending upon its depth and with the sunlight.

At Srinagar, you can shop for pashminas, carved wooden boxes, Kashmiri carpets and the world famous Kashmiri Saffron. Take in every bit of authentic Kashmiri cuisine when you stop by their famous eateries in the market.Kashmiri food is considered as the pinnacle of culinary excellence with their famous spices and rich colour.

Kargil is a town which lies in the Kargil district in the union territory of Ladakh. It is the second largest town in Ladakh after Leh and it lies at an elevation of 2,676mts. While in Kargil, visit Sonmarg and Baltal valley and also the Zoji La Pass, the highest mountain pass in the Kashmir valley. Other famous stopovers while going from Kargil to Leh are Nankila Peak, Fotu La, which is a mountain pass lying in Zanskar Range of the Himalayas at an elevation of 4,108mts. Lamayuru or Yuru Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery at an elevation of 3,510mts. It holds the distinction of being the latest and the oldest monasteries in Ladakh with 150 monks residing here. According to legends, Lamayuru Valley was a lake filled with serpents. Arahat Madhyantika, a person responsible for spreading Buddhism made some offering to the Nagas here and with the crack of his walking stick, a hole was made and all the water was drained out. Since that incident, the place is considered holy and sacred.
