Leh Ladakh Road Trip- DAY-1

We chose car which was not at all a bad idea, the distance roughly comes to some 400 kilometers and the mountains follow you all the way till Leh. Leh Ladakh is all about adventure and bike is the best way to fill the thrills. You'll find plenty of bikers on your way who travels all the way from different states and many from different countries. Bikers love to wave their country flag so you'll find many flags at the back of bikes and cars. All the riding and driving is possible because of our BRO and by that I mean Border Road Organization, they gave us those wonderful roads and VT sign boards which you will find time and again on your way.

First you'll come across the very famous Rohtang pass, during winter both the sides of the road are covered by snow. In the mountain surely you cannot find Dominoes or McDonald's all you'll find is the hospitality of the natives out here and their delicious homemade cuisine. 
By Dawn you should find a place to stay and Jispa is the best. This Stay is important so that you don't miss out the scenic beauty at night. The tensor will range you somewhere between 800 to 1500.

Now that we are done with the must visit places around Leh it's time to move to Nubra Valley. The route to Hunder is also known as Nubra Valley. You can also go to Turtuk village which is around 160 kilometers from Hunder. Turtuk village was under Pakistan's control until 1971 after which India gained control of this strategic area. on your way to Nubra Valley you come across the highest motorable Road in the world Khardung La Pass.

Deskit Monastery is not only the oldest but also the largest Buddhist Gompa in the Nubra valley. The majestic statue of Jampa Buddha will catch your sight from far, facing the Shyok river the statue sits tall with the height of 32 meters and was constructed with the help of the natives of the valley. 
Now we are heading to Pangong Lake here is a tricky route there are three ways to reach Pangong. 

  • First way- is to go back to Leh which is definitely a very long and unreasonable route.
  • Second way- is to head towards Agham and via Sarkti reach Pangong. 
  • Third way- is definitely the shortest and the deadliest screw this will take you through Shyok river. The roads are bad and there are three rivers that you have to cross. So avoid this road and make sure you don't go this way. On your way you will cross the chang la paz the third highest motorable Road.
Leh-ladakh-road-trip-4Here we are at Pangong lake yes the same place where "Three Idiots" were shot. The charismatic lake is situated on the Changthang plateau and is at the height of 4250 metres. Crystalline blue lake sprawls over an area of 134 kilometers across the borders of two countries in India and China. Don't fall prey to the hoardings the real scene was shot a little further which you need to find. The lively Lake comes to a standstill during winter. The surface of the lake turns so solid that one can
walk over the frozen lake then becomes a playground for ice skaters and skiers from around the world. 
When you are done with all the spots spend a refreshing day back in Leh, visit the leh market find accessories work of art which you buy at the cost of your kidney these stuffs are expensive.
Leh market is also famous for the varieties of pashmina shawl one thing you should pick up is a custom-made t-shirt.
