The challenging terrain of Leh Ladakh in the Himalayas invites you to experience a completely new way of life. This place is awe-inspiring and breathtaking due to its purity, which can awaken something within you. Leh is a small town that epitomizes a mountain town, with its stunning beauty and humble, loving locals.

 

For nature lovers and adventurers alike, tourism in Ladakh offers an incredible experience.    Ladakh, with its towering barren mountains, is known for having some of the highest motorable passes such as Khardung La (5359 m), Marsimik La (5582 m), and Chang La (5360 m), as well as picturesque alpine lakes like Pangong Tso (4350 m) and Tso Moriri (4522 m). The region of Ladakh is divided into three parts - Leh, Nubra, and Zanskar, each offering a variety of attractions to explore.  The region of Leh and Ladakh exemplifies organized simplicity. Ladakh offers not just mesmerizing landscapes and adventure, but also a focused lifestyle that promotes contentment and fulfillment. Traveling to Ladakh through this Itinerary allows you to escape the rat race of everyday life and appreciate the true essence of living on Earth. When searching for Ladakh tour packages online, the desire for adventure naturally grows. This destination ignites excitement and offers a life-changing experience. 

 

Ladakh is called the land of high passes for a reason. The whole region is blessed with passes that are capable of raising your adreline. Here are the famous passes of Ladakh that you can’t miss.

Highlights

Nubra Valley - Nubra, a deep gorge created by the Shyok and Siachen Rivers, is without a doubt one of the top tourist destinations in Ladakh. In addition to being the starting point for some of the highest regions, such Siachen Glacier, it is also the location of the hot springs at Panamik settlement, the old monasteries, the sand dunes of Hunder, and the settlement split along a boundary.

 

Pangong Tso - One of the most well-liked and fantastic locations to visit in Ladakh is Pangong Lake, which is the highest saltwater lake in the world. Several scenes from the films 3 Idiots, Jab Tak hai Jaan, and many more were filmed there as well.

 

Shanti Stupa - Ladakhi and Japanese Buddhists collaborated to construct the Shanti Stupa. This white-domed structure, perched atop a hill, is a popular tourist destination in Ladakh and is said to contain Buddha relics.

 

Khardung La Pass - One of the highest motorable passes in the world, the Khardung La Pass serves as a gateway to Ladakh's Nubra and Shyok Valleys.

 

Magnetic Hill  -  Magnetic Hill is a picturesque and captivating route that runs next to the Sindhu river.When you park your car in the designated white box on the road, the vehicle will begin to ascend at a rate of twenty kilometers per hour on its own. The phenomenon piques travelers' curiosity and is the subject of numerous mythology.

 

Turtuk - Located at the northernmost point of Nubra beside the Shyok River, Turtuk is the final settlement situated in the Baltistan region along the boundary between India and Pakistan. For the Indian Army, this region is crucial since it serves as the entrance to Siachen Glacier. One of the best spots to visit in Ladakh is its apricot-laden orchards, lush plains, pure river banks, and captivating history.
