Ladakh

The Cold Desert

Ladakh

If you’re looking for an extraordinary life time experience then Ladakh is your destination! The fascinating Pangong Tso, the spectacular silver sand dunes of Hundar, breathtaking views of the Shanti Stupa, the high-octane rush of river rafting, and the peaceful monasteries en route, nature has rendered a magical and fantastic landscape in Ladakh. It’s known for its extreme deserts, blue waters, freezing winds and glaciers too.
The blue skies and the fresh mountain air around are just precursors to one of the most remarkable holidays of your life. Use the first day to acclimatize and avoid anything strenuous.
Whether it is the Hemis Monastery with the tall Buddha statue or other stupas made of gold and silver with Tibetan thangkas, there is a common thread of tranquility running through them. Visit the Thiksey Monastery, the largest in Ladakh, to admire its traditional Tibetan architecture. Come evening, spend some more peaceful moments at the Shanti Stupa, and head back to the town for a traditional Tibetan meal.

Nubra

The most contrasting landscapes in Ladakh are Nubra Valley and the Hundar Desert in its heartland. The dramatically changing vistas over the 6-hour drive through the Khardung La (highest motorable pass in the world) need to be witnessed to be believed! Set off to experience the silvery magnificence of the Hundar Sand Dunes right amidst the luscious valley, and meet the rare double-humped camels. You could even enjoy a ride and visit Maitreya Buddha, Samstaling Monastery, Panamik Village, and Yarab Tso Sumur, Diksit and Turtuk.

Pangong Lake

Wake up and enjoy another local breakfast—Khambir, a traditional bread eaten with apricot jam and served with the traditional butter tea – and head  on a round-trip excursion via the Chang La Pass to the Pangong Lake. It’s a surreal experience watching the mystically beautiful lake with stoic mountains around changing colors through the day. Soak in the atmosphere.

Tso Moriri

The lake is at an altitude of 4,522 m (14,836 ft). It is the largest of the high altitude lakes entirely within India and entirely within Ladakh in this Trans-Himalayan biogeographic region. It is about 16 miles (26 km) north to south in length and two to three miles (3 to 5 km) wide. The lake has no outlet at present and the water is brackish though not very perceptible to taste.

Lamyuru

Known as a Moonland of Ladakh. Lamyuru Monastery is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in Lamyuru, Leh district, India. It is situated on the Srinagar-Leh highway 15 kilometers (9.3 mi) east of the Fotu La at a height of 3,510 meters (11,520 ft)
