The flight to Ladakh is absolutely scenic.. You get a birdseye view of the entire city and the layers of snow-clad mountains . You will feel a drop in the temperature the minute you land at the Leh airport, which is also one of the highest airports in the world. Collect your bags , meet the team captains and a small tour briefing session will be conducted.

Today is a very crucial day from our health perspective. Our suggestion is to experience Leh Kule – Kule!. The sudden change in altitude makes it necessary for one to take things slow, take necessary rest and avoid anything strenuous before you set out to explore Leh. Ensure that you breathe slowly, stay hydrated at all times. This is to get acclimatized as your body needs to adjust to the low atmospheric pressure.

Hence, Post Check-In, we relax at the hotel. Later in the evening if we are feeling up for it, you can head out to take a stroll in the Leh Market/relax at a cafe.

Return back to the hotel and retire for the night post having a hearty and delicious dinner that awaits us.

Breakfast, Dinner

The day embarks with a healthy breakfast, post which we gear up to explore Leh.

There are just soo many places that one can see. We have tried to incorporate as much possible to make sure to cover the sheer beauty of Leh.

The places that we cover are:
Hall of Fame - Constructed by the Indian Army in memory of the brave Indian soldiers who laid down their lives defending the motherland during various wars in this region. The Hall of Fame exhibits weaponry that was used in the Kargil War, highly structured display of the documents of the war, uniforms that are worn at the Siachen glacier and so on. You are surely to be filled with a sense of pride visiting this revered place. To add cherry on top the museum also houses a souvenir shop.
Shanti Stupa – Sitting at a height of 4267 meters overlooking the Leh city, giving a panoramic view of surrounding mountains is the marvel Shanti Stupa. What makes it unique is not just the architectural exquisiteness but also that it holds the relics of the Buddha at its base, enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama himself. Built to promote world peace and prosperity as well as to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism, it is one of the major attractions in Leh.
Zanskar & Indus Confluence - One of the most arresting views of Mother Nature that can be seen in Ladakh, is the Sangam, the confluence Indus and Zanskar Rivers. The green-tinged Indus River that originates in the Tibetan Plateau near the Manasarovar range and the shiny blue Zanskar which has its source in the Zanskar valley meet to give the most beautiful shade of nature. Definitely a visual treat!
Magnetic Hills – The place where gravity takes a back seat! Magnetic Hill is famous for its ability to make vehicles feel as though they are rolling uphill. Would be fun experiencing it. Wouldn’t it?
Gurudwara Pathar Sahib - Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, most respected place where Guru Nanak Dev ji, founder of the Sikh religion is believed to have conquered a demon.

You have the evening to yourself to acclimatize and spend time shopping, snacking and strolling delving into the history of the place. Return back to the hotel, have dinner and rest up well. Tomorrow is a big day!

Post breakfast, we will check out from our campsite and head towards Pangong Tso,
the iconic lake that has gained popularity ever since featuring in the Bollywood
blockbuster movie 3 Idiots.

En-route, we will visit the Diskit Monastery, popular for the the 100ft tall colorful
statue of Buddha.

What makes Pangong Tso so unique and one of the most astonishing lakes in Asia is the fact that not only is it located at an elevation of 4300 mtrs, it changes its color 4 – 5 times a day. The Pangong Lake or “lake of the great hollow” is considered as the largest lake in Asia. Pangong Lake is about 4 km wide on average and at least 136 Km long. The extent of the known portion is, therefore, upwards of 250 square miles (400 sq. km). The water is clearer though salty. The Crystal-clear salty water shines in many shades of blue depending upon its depth. It literally changes shades with sunlight. With a backdrop of mountains of various hues and colors, it is a sight good enough to satiate your soul and enrich the senses.
