date_range 7 Nights / 8 Days
Day 1: Arrive at Leh
Welcome at Leh airport from where you’ll be transferred to your hotel in private vehicle. Check-in at the hotel. Acclimatizing to the altitude is very important part of journey before doing any activity so take rest and venture out to the city market in evening for a casual stroll (on your own). Don’t exert your body if you are feeling tired at any time during the day. Return to hotel in evening for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2: Local sight-seeing in Leh
After breakfast at hotel, start your journey to Leh – Srinagar highway. The drive further is one of the most spectacular journeys you will have. From the mountains formed by amalgamation of various types and textures of rocks to the dazzling Zanskar Valley and the white snow clad peaks accompanying you all along the journey, this route gives you an absolute picturesque landscape. Head to visit the Magnetic hill, Pathar Sahib Gurudwara, Hall of fame and confluence point. Return to Leh in the evening for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 3: Leh – Enroute Khardungla – “Nubra Valley”
After breakfast at the hotel, brace yourself for the splendid drive over the mighty Khardung La – the 2nd highest motorable pass in the world at a height of 5602 M/ 18,380 ft. Over the route, the road dramatically plunges and Shyok and Nubra Rivers unfold, magically. You move on via Diskit to reach the white sands of Hunder. After freshening up, visit the Diskit monastery, which is believed to be the largest and oldest monastery in Nubra valley, and enjoy the sunset. Dinner and overnight stay in Nubra.
Day 4: Nubra– Pangong Tso via Shyok / Warila (6-7 hrs. Journey one way)
Post breakfast, begin your journey for the day, exploring the various villages of Nubra Valley. Retrace your steps past Diskit, to go to Khalsar. Walk your way to the ancient Gompa. Don’t forget to pack a lunch. Now drive the mound of earthen monastic dwellings, crowned by the Gompa. The valley is blessed with a beautiful stream flowing through it, originating from the lake, giving a greenish tincture to the otherwise dry landscape around. Apart from flora this area is rich in fauna too. You can see a lot of Himalayan Marmots around the area. However, the main attraction of this circuit is the grand Pangong Tso, which you would reach by noon. The mesmerizing beauty and the fantastic view of Tso places it a league above anything you have seen so far. Overnight stay in Pangong.
Day 5: Pangong – Leh via Changla Pass (5-6 hrs. Journey)
After breakfast drive back to Leh. On the way back, visit the Sindhu Ghat, Shey and Thiksey monasteries. There is also a symbolic salute to the brave soldiers of the country. Witness traditional dance performances by local artists from various parts of the country. Then visit The Druk White Lotus School and the Rancho School. Reach Leh in the evening and stay overnight in Leh.
Day 6: Leh to Tsomoriri (The Road Less Taken) / 7-8 hrs. Journey
Wake up lazy morning. After Breakfast head for a route famously known as road less traveled. The fact that this route is so less taken already makes it feel like some exotic land. The colors of the mountains and the salt marches only add to the scene. Reach Tsomoriri in the evening. The landscape is out of this world as you reach the shore, the mountains welcome you while the gentle waves invite you the extravaganza. The clouds don't want to be left out, they will create some drama too! Sit on the white sand and enjoy the serenity. Dinner and overnight stay in Tsomoriri.
Day 7: Back to Leh via Tanglang La (Leh - Manali highway / 7-8 hrs. Journey)
Wake up lazy morning. Start your journey back after a leisure breakfast overlooking the lake drive back to Leh via Tanglang La - third highest motorable road in the world offering a panoramic view of the snow capped hills and the valley beneath.

Hi, Would like to thank you for arranging a nice trip. I would like to add one small suggestion, first two days stay in Hotel Arya is not very great. The Hotel rooms were very cold and hospitality is not so great. Snow leopard was excellent. Javed has organized the trip very well.
