Being blessed with a diverse topology is what makes travelling in India an unforgettable experience. The high altitude cold desert of Ladakh located in the Great Himalayas is one such experience that will forever etch in your memories with its picture-postcard views and rich culture. What’s interesting is its strategic location as Ladakh shares borders with not just one, but three countries – China, Tibet and Pakistan.

After acclimatization at 11000ft, your journey will take you through ancient Buddhist monasteries and ethnic villages in and around Leh, offering a sneak-peek into the fascinating customs and traditions of the locals. Soak in breathtaking views of the confluence of Zanskar and Indus and enjoy a drive on the World’s Highest Motorable road on your way to Nubra Valley through the Khardungla Pass that connects the valley to Leh city. The sand dunes at Hunder, the the Diskit monastery - the largest one in the valley along with the hot springs in Panamik are some of the other attractions in store. Marvel the surreal beauty of the famous Pangong Lake which extends all the way to China, and visit the Thiksey Monastery and Hemis Monastery on the way before you head back to Leh.
