Leh is a powehouse of beauty and culture. The market and the streets hustle and bustle with both tourists and locals alike. The local cuisine is lip smacking and there are dozens of monasteries and ancient temples that can be visited. Take the day slow, especially if you have arrived to Leh by flight. Breathe in the fresh air and let your body get used to the altitude, for an experience that will change your life forever will begin tomorrow.

Day 2
Leh Sightseeing
Leh Bazaar Local Cuisine Magnetic Hill Indus Zanskar Sangam War Memorial Sunset from Shanti Stupa

Private Vehicle

Hotel

Breakfast, Dinner

No need to rush today as the day is free to experience the culture of Ladakh by exploring the monasteries, Leh bazaar, talking to locals and eating some local cuisine. Roaming around the city and nearby will help you to get acclimatize with the weather and high altitude. We will take you for a drive on Srinagar-Leh highway where you can seek blessing of Guru Nanak Dev at Gurudwara Pathar Sahib , find the illusion of magnetic hill for yourself and witness the confluence of Indus and Zanskar. Return to Leh city to witness sunset from Shanti Stupa and amazing views of Leh city.


Day 3
Leh to Hunder
Khardung La Nubra Double Humped Camel Hunder Gompa

Private Vehicle

Tents | Luxury Tents

Breakfast, Dinner

The gateway to Nubra Valley is from Khandung La at 17582 ft.
Formed by the Nubra river and Shyok river joining – Nubra valley is wide, open expanses of desert. It is the beautiful coloured vistas on the drive which makes for so many Ladakh road trip photos. It is untouched villages, tremendous stretches of sand and lakes. With no signal connection and a ticket away from all the modern ways of life, you’ll feel like you’ve entered a new age.

Hunder

By far the most popular destination in Nubra, mostly on account of the sand dunes starting 3km east of the village, Hunder is ensconced in greenery against the backdrop of soaring valley cliffs. The dunes themselves can be traversed on double-humped Bactrian camels which are unique to the region. Also drop in at Hunder Gompa, which contains a large gilded Maitreya Buddha (Chamba) statue; a crude trail climbs to a precarious little ridgetop fort.


Day 4
Hunder - Sumur - Panamik- Diskit
Diskit Gompa Sumur sand dunes Panamik hot springs

Private Vehicle

Tents | Luxury Tents

Breakfast, Dinner

Diskit
Hunder to Diskit: 10 kms/ 25 mins

Nubra’s biggest settlement, Diskit is important for practical reasons: one, it’s got the region’s only petrol pump (1km north towards Hunder); and two, it’s the only place where you’ll find internet connectivity. There’s not much else to do here, although the remarkably well-preserved 17th-century Diskit Gompa is worth a visit. Perched on a craggy peak above Old Diskit, it offers sweeping views of the valley and a massive (32m) statue of the Maitreya Buddha on an intermediate hill.

Sumur
Diskit to Sumur: 31kms/45mins

While the dunes at Hunder are well-known, Sumur has an equally expansive spread of sand. The village is reached by taking a prominent left from the fork before Khalsar village. To go to the dunes, take a left on an unpaved road 1km before the Link Road junction. The dunes begin about 800m down this road. Visit the colourful and extensively rebuilt Samstemling Gompa.

Panamik
Sumur to Panamik: 20kms/44mins

Just 20km from Sumur, Panamik is famous for its hot springs, but Panamik’s actual crowning glory is the scenery of surrounding valleys, best appreciated from the bridge just west of Hargam. Since 2010, permits allow you to cross that bridge and double back down a very rough road (part stream) towards little Ensa Gompa.

Another unknown gem in this area is the Yarab Tso Lake, which is situated close to both Panamik and Sumur villages. While not a huge as the other famous lake, this lake has surreal, transparent water – it is not frequented by many tourists. Due to this factor, there is an unusual serenity and a peaceful atmosphere around the lake. Isolation seekers, and offbeat enthusiasts


Day 5
Huder to Turtuk

Private Vehicle

Tents | Luxury Tents

Breakfast, Dinner

If you go beyond Hundar, you will be treated by a landscape which is unseen in the rest of Ladakh, and people which are unseen in the rest of India. Turtuk, India’s northern most village, lies nearby to the line of control between India and Pakistan, and is one of the most unexplored places.

The landscape here is surprisingly green, the soil fertile, with Turtuk being the largest apricot producer in Ladakh. You’ll be greeted by fields of apricot, and people speaking Balti language – one that is spoken in the neighbouring Baltistan region of Pakistan. Balti is an old language and uses sounds and symbols which bear resemblance to those of Persian and Iranian languages which are no longer used.

Though Buddhism is the major religion in Turtuk, it features a mixed culture influenced by the Tibetan, Indian and the Muslim way. This also explains the unique physical features of the people you’ll see here.


Day 6
Turtuk - Pangong Tso
Khalsar Agham Shyok Village Pangong Tso

Private Vehicle

Tents | Luxury Tents

Breakfast, Dinner

This is definitely one road trip that you want to record with lots of photographs. The journey is 200 km long. This is definitely not a Sunday drive.
The first part of the road (Hunder to Khalsar) is insanely beautiful, the road is constructed well, with a long stretch of straight road and afterward, the bends are just delightful. From Khalsar to Agham the drive offers views unlike any other valley in Ladakh. In one moment, you will be driving next to the river bed, sometimes on the river bed itself and the next moment, you will be on a steep climb with many hairpin bends. This entire route will lead you up and take you back to the river multiple times. A majority of the route is driven next to the Shyok river.
From Agham to Shyok Village, the route is mostly in a mixture of well-constructed stretches and passing through riverbeds. The curves are not difficult to maneuver but are frequent and the roads are exceptionally narrow. The Shyok Village to Durbuk section is very scenic. This is also the spot where a number of Bollywood movies have been shot – Jab tak hai Jaan, Highway etc. The last part of the road links Durbuk and Spangmik. Here the route becomes more commercial. This stretch of the road is easy, but you’re in the heavy military area – a lot of places prohibit photography, so do keep an eye out for the signs. Near the end of the journey, you hit a rough patch of road. It has to be known that the Ladakh roads do make you earn your sites. This road ensures the driving is dramatic, the roads are thin and the excitement is immeasurable.

Pangong Tso’ means ‘long, narrow, enchanting lake’. It is one of the high altitudes endorheic lakes of India at a staggering altitude of 14270 feet (4350 Meters) in the Himalayas. The multi-shades of blue colour and the beautiful ocean-like lake is about 5 KM wide at its broadest point and about 134 KM long with about 60% of the length extending into Tibet. During winters the lake freezes completely, which itself is a great experience to witness if you have seen the other colours of the lake. Beautiful, panoramic and mystical, the reflections of the spectacular Changchenmo mountain range shimmering in the ever-changing blues of the lake’s water, the serenity and purity of this marvellous place deserves a standing ovation. So, this is what we call as Pangong Tso. It is one of those places that everyone has to put on their bucket list as “See once before you die”.

"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !

I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
