Day 2 – Leh to Nubra valley via Khardungla Our long ride starts with conquering the mighty Khardung La (the World's Highest Motorable Road at a height of 18,380 ft). Riding further downhill, we enter the heart of Nubra valley. It is an amazing experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. As we enter Nubra Valley, the ride along the Shayok River and then to witnessing Hunder sand dunes is a treat for the eyes. We will first visit the oldest and largest monastery of the valley - Diskit monastery and then head out to explore the sand dunes. After rolling around on the sand dunes, we finally head to our campsite. Campsite in Hunder.
Day 3 – Nubra to Turtuk to Hunder Around 80km further north from Hunder (Nubra), we reach a beautiful village which was part of former Baltistan. Turtuk is one of the last unexplored places in Leh - Ladakh and village still retain the pristine with very hospitable local people. Post lunch, we go further north to reach India Pakistan Border at Thang village. We return to Hunder same day. Stay at Campsite in Hunder.
Day 4 – Nubra to Pangong Tso via Shayok Today’s route is actually a shortcut road to reach the famous Pangong Tso via Shayok through rough and rocky terrain and in between water streams. The first glance of the alluring Pangong Lake and its blue waters is enough to leave a lasting impression on your mind. Our campsite for the night, which is our personal favourite, is by the lake itself at Lukung and 20 km away from the famous '3 idiots' shooting point. Stay at Camp in Lukung
Day 5 – Pangong Lake to Karzok (Tsomoriri) via Chushul This will be the most scenic ride of the entire trip although the entire stretch is off-road. From Spangmik, we will head towards Mann and Merak. We grab our lunch at a small village Chushul. Although much smaller than Pangong Tso, it looks more majestic. With fewer tourists visiting this place, it makes the places all the more beautiful. We reach the campsite by later afternoon. Stay at Camp near the Lake
Day 6 – Karzok (Tsomoriri)to Sakti via Tsokar After exploring around Tsomoriri Lake in the morning, we depart to our next destination at Tso Kar which is fairly nearby. Tso Kar known for its size and depth is a fluctuating salt lake situated in the Rupshu Plateau and valley in the southern part of Ladakh. Then hit the Manali – Leh highway, we will also cross the third highest motorable road – Tanglang La. Reach Sakti village by evening which is located near to Hemis Monastery. Stay at Guesthouse in Sakti
Day 7 – Sakti to Nimmo (River Rafting)to Leh The last leg of our journey leads to Srinagar highway. On our way, we will visit Magnetic Hill and Confluence point of Indus and Zanskar River. We wash off all the dust from our crazy journey by plunging into the waters of Zanskar River! We will go on a crazy rafting expedition which you will surely cherish. Return back Leh by evening and you can do some last-minute shopping and pack your bags. Stay at Guesthouse in Leh
