Here’s what you can expect on a trip to Leh Ladakh with a visit to Turtuk Village:
Your journey will likely begin in Leh, where you can explore the local markets, visit monasteries, and get acclimatized to the high altitude.
From Leh, you’ll head to Nubra Valley, which is known for its sand dunes, lush green villages, and the confluence of Shyok and Nubra rivers.
You’ll have the opportunity to cross the famous Khardung La pass, one of the highest motorable passes in the world.
- Diskit Monastery:
In Nubra Valley, you can visit the Diskit Monastery, home to a giant statue of Maitreya Buddha and offering stunning views of the surrounding landscapes.
This village in Nubra Valley is famous for its unique experience of riding Bactrian camels amidst the sand dunes.
- Turtuk Village:
The highlight of your trip will be a visit to Turtuk Village. It is one of the last villages in India before the Line of Control (LOC) with Pakistan. Turtuk was under Pakistani control until 1971 and was opened to tourists in 2010. The village offers a glimpse into the Balti culture and traditions, different from the rest of Ladakh. You can explore the village, interact with friendly locals, enjoy traditional Balti cuisine, and witness the beauty of apricot orchards and the Turtuk River.
On your way back from Turtuk, you can visit Panamik, known for its hot springs with supposed medicinal properties.
- Pangong Lake:
While Pangong Lake is not directly related to Turtuk, it is a must-visit destination in Ladakh. The stunning blue waters of the lake against the backdrop of barren mountains are truly captivating.
- Hemis Monastery:
If time allows, you may also visit Hemis Monastery, one of the largest and most famous monasteries in Ladakh, known for its annual Hemis Festival.
Leh to Nubra Valley:
Nubra Valley, a truly enchanting destination, boasts majestic mountains, dazzling lakes, and incomparable landmarks. The distance from Leh to Nubra Valley by road spans 159 kilometers, and the journey takes approximately four hours and forty minutes. Keep in mind that an Inner Line Permit is mandatory to visit Nubra Valley, obtainable either in person from Leh’s DM office or conveniently through the online platform. For foreign travelers, a Protected Area permit is required, which can only be obtained through a registered travel agent. You’ll find three routes to Nubra Valley from Leh: the Khardung La road, Wari La, and Agham Shyok road.
Khardung La road:
It is the most popular, easiest, and quickest route, favored by more than 90% of tourists visiting Nubra Valley. Travelers take the road from Leh towards Khardung La, passing through the village of Khardung and reaching Khalsar before beholding the charismatic view of Nubra Valley. This route covers a total distance of 350 to 450 kilometers, including the round trip from Nubra Valley back to Leh.
Wari La route:
It is less commonly used to reach Nubra Valley. It appeals to those who wish to proceed straight from Nubra Valley to Pangong Tso without returning to Leh. However, this path entails a longer journey and increased travel duration, making it a choice mainly for adventurous souls who seek the challenge of driving through more difficult terrain.
Agham Shyok road:
The trail along the Agham Shyok road is the most demanding route to Nubra Valley. It lacks proper roads, filled with rough rocks and broken pathways, making it less accessible for travel. However, if avoiding a return to Leh is a priority, this route can be taken, as it offers a travel time of just six hours.
In conclusion, Nubra Valley beckons with its magical allure, and regardless of the chosen route, the journey promises unforgettable experiences amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Ladakh. So, embark on this adventure, and let the wonders of Nubra Valley captivate your soul.
