Journey to Ladakh

Leh - Nubra Valley - Leh - Pangong Lake - Leh

Introduction

The weeklong ‘Journey to Ladakh’ tour explores two naturally furnished regions of Ladakh- Pangong Lake and Nubra Valley. The Nubra Valley is a cluster of tiny villages with irrigated and fertile land. The presence of Buddhist monasteries can be rightly attributed to its natives which are followers of Buddhism at large.

Next there is Pangong Lake which is an important breeding ground for migratory birds such as Brahmini Ducks and Bar-headed goose. Along with these two places, the 6 nights and 7 days tour package encompasses various high passes and other attractions as well. Mentioned below is the day wise description of the tour itinerary for your kind perusal.

  • Camel Safari on the white sand dunes of Hunder
