While in Leh, you'll also visit Shanti Stupa which offers panoramic view of the Leh Town and one of the best photo ops of the town along with Leh Palace where the former monarch of Ladakh resided. And that is not all as you will be taken on topof Khardung La, the highest motorable pass in the world.
After your early morning flight has brought you to the beautiful city of Leh, our representatives will escort you out of the Kushok Bakula Rinpoche (KBR) Airport transfer to your hotel. Once you have checked into your room you have the remainder of the day at your own leisure. We recommend you use this time to get acclimatized to the high altitude and low air pressure in Ladakh. Evening can be utilized for a short walk to local markets. Return back to your rooms for overnight stay.

On the 3rd day of the tour, you will kickstart with a 48 km morning drive to Khardungla Pass which, at 5600 meters, is supposedly the world’s highest motorable pass. You are then driven back to the hotel for lunch and a short afternoon nap. Around 2:00 pm, drive towards the way of Magnetic hill, a confluence of Zanskar River and Indus River. Magnetic Hill is a place that defies gravity and the vehicle started to roll uphill.
