Tour Highlight

'The Land of High Passes' Leh, the largest town and joint capital of the Union Territory of Ladakh, is located at a height of 3500 meters. Ladakh's Himalayan Kingdom capital.

It is a Buddhist stupa with a white dome that was erected on a mountaintop as part of the Peace Pagoda Mission by a Japanese Buddhist Bhikshu. In addition to its religious significance, it is a popular tourist destination for its panoramic views of the surrounding landscape.

The second highest motorable road in the world, measuring 5359 meters, serves as a gateway to Nubra Valley.

Diskit is Nubra's headquarters. The 106-foot Maitreya Buddha statue is located in Diskit Gompa.

Ldumra, one of the subdistricts of Ladakh, is known by the Tibetan name Ldumra, which translates to "the Valley of Flowers." The Nubra valley is a deep gorge created by the Shyok River and the Nubra River. Take in the picturesque splendour of Hunder and the Bactrian Double Hump Camel rides.

Turtuk has settlements that are bursting with apricot trees. The terrain and cultural orientation are very distinct from the rest of the Nubra Valley.

At 4225 meters above sea level, Pangong Tso Lake is 134 kilometers long, with 50% of the length located in Tiber and the rest in Ladakh. One of the highest saltwater lakes in the world transforms from blue to green to red.

Anyone visiting Leh-Ladakh is strongly encouraged to visit Hanle. It is a peaceful small village away from the crowds that provides some of the nicest views you may find while travelling. Even the journey to the village is very picturesque.

Due to its unrivalled natural beauty, Tso Moriri Lake draws a large number of admirers and tourists. They are surrounded by marshes and wetlands that serve as breeding sites for rare and special wildlife.

At 3600 meters up on a mountaintop in Leh, there lies a Tibetan monastery called Thikse Gompa. Affiliated to the Tibetan Buddhist Gelung sect. It is the largest gompa in central Ladakh and has a close resemblance to the Potala Palace in Tibet.

It is a Cyclops Hill in Ladakh, close to Leh. A yellow sign board with the words "The Phenomenon That Defies Gravity" marks the location of the Magnetic Hill. It also tells you to park your vehicles in the box marked with a white point on the road, which is known as the Magnetic Road.
