Plan-
2nd June: Day 1 – Dip into the LOC History

Have a perfect Ladakhi shuruvaat as you cross Zojilla Pass to reach the first district in Ladakh, Kargil. Stop at the Kargil War Memorial to dip into IndoPak History and enjoy Momos at their in-house cafe. Stay at Mulbeck.

We’ll start early in the morning on the 2nd. For convenience, you might have to reach Srinagar a day prior. We’ll assist you with all the stay, food and exploration options out there, if required.

3rd June: Day 2 – Julley Leh!

Wake up to the perfect view of mountainsides in Mulbeck. There’s a lot to be seen on the way as you traverse across various high passes. Visit the Maitreya Buddha statue, Namik La, Alchi Monastry and the Lamayuru Monastry.

It is the most scenic route that is there. Reach Leh. Greet the mountains. Rest in your abode.

4th June: Day 3 – Leh City Exploration
Get to know the army at Leh Hall of Fame, witness royalty at Leh Palace and see the magic unfold in the evening at Shaanti Stupa.

Indulge in good food in the markets of Leh. Small cafes serve the most delicious Thukpa.

5th June: Day 4 – To the last village of India: Turtuk
We begin our journey towards the IndoPak border for a village named Turtuk. Drive through the highest motorable pass in the world, the KhardungLa.

Turtuk is the last accessible village of North India before LOC. Enjoy the chatter of shy kids, long walks in green fields to the village monastry, ancient stories embedded in stone scriptures, and some brilliant Balti Cuisine. The village is a small climb uphill.

If luck is on your side, Mt. K2, the Mountain of mountains, will offer a peek at itself!

6th June: Day 5 – Sand Dunes, Camel Rides & Nubra Valley

The day calls for some chai and village exploration. By afternoon, bid goodbye and visit Hunder Sand Dunes in the evening on the way. The sights of Nubra Valley will surely win over your heart. Stay at a Guest House in Hunder that offers a panoramic view of the desert.

7th June: Day 6 – Back to Leh
Bid goodbye to the Sand Dunes and set on road for Leh. Visit the largest monastery in Nubra Valley, Diksit Gompa. The 32 mt. statue of Maitreya Buddha invites you from faraway.
On reaching Leh, let the day unwind as you stroll around the streets of Leh Market in the evening, waving and smiling at the locals.
8th June: Day 7 – The Mighty Zanskar Rapids
Raft along the waters of ice-cold Zanskar as your hands freeze to paddle ahead for 12 kms. We dare you to jump in the water for a nice swim. We did it.
On your way back visit Gurudwara Langar Sahib for some delicous Langar ka khaana.

9th June: Day 8 – The day of the mystical lake, Pangong
Pangong Tso, Tibetan for “long, narrow, enchanted lake” sits true to its name and beauty. Stretching 140 kms long across the IndoChina Border, Pangong will enchant you with it’s beauty. Spend the night in tents at the Campsite facing the lake.

10th June: Day 9 – Return to Leh, Souvenir Shopping
Enjoy your last day in this heaven by walking down the Leh City Market, eating some traditional Ladakhi food and bidding goodbye.

11th June: Day 10 – Farewell
Bid goodbye to this heaven that’s been our home for the last 10 days.
