Description

Ladakh - the ‘Land of the High Passes’ - is among the most stunning parts of the Indian Himalayas. Surrounded by Pakistan, Tibet and Xinjiang Province (China) and India’s Himachal Pradesh, it forms the eastern part of Jammu & Kashmir. North of Leh, Ladakh’s capital, lays a far-flung and austerely beautiful enclave cradled by rugged Mountains ‒ this is the Nubra Valley (often simply abbreviated to Nubra), a tuft of land on the very scalp of India.

The beautiful and diverse Ladakh is a traveller's favorite, Leh's cold desert of Nubra Valley and Zanskar Valley and the alpine lakes are the best places for nature and photography travel.This is a 9,850-foot-high Himalayan desert. It is Ladakh’s bleak emptiness along with a brief poplar blossom which looks like snow that attracts the most intrepid of travelers.

Today we take an adventurous and scenic trip to the magnificent Pangong Lake. A must see destination for your time in Ladakh, more than half of the lake marks the border between India and China. The appearance of the water is said to change colour at every angle of the sun- which is truly a photographers’ delight. So don’t forget that camera and spare batteries.

Pangong Lake - Thiksey - Shey - Leh

Enjoy the beautiful sunrise at Pangong Lake before making your way back to Leh via Thiksey Monastery, also known as ‘Little Lhasa’.
