This is the last day of our trip and our plan was to explore pangong lake as much as we can in the first half of the day, then proceed to chang la, spent time in chang la, proceed to leh, then visit Leh palace and shanti stupa.
This is the day 6 of our trip and we are going to visit beautiful Pangong lake. Every one in the team was so excited to visit this place and we are going to stay over night adjacent to the lake. As per the plan, there is no night stay at pangong lake, but we changed the plan and included it. A day before pangong trip, we came to know that there was huge land slide happened near chang la and we were not sure whether we will be going to pangong as per the plan on day 6. In the morning, our trip manager told us to visit leh palace, sindhu ghat, Thiksey monastery and by that time if the road is cleared, we can go for Pangong lake, but there are just 50 % chances of road to be cleared.
After two days of hectic long journey to Nubra valley, fourth day of our ladakh trip was planned to be a leisure trip visiting some attractions near to leh town. So we woke up late in the morning at around 8 AM, had break fast and boarded the cab. Our first stop was at Hall of Fame Museum, setup by the Indian Army in memories of brave soldiers who lost their lives in Indo-pak wars.
Because of the long road journey from Ladakh to Nubra valley, we were very tired and had a good sleep in the Tirth camp(Nubra Valley). When we woke up, the whole Nubra valley is filled up with fog and it was very cold. Every one woke up at around 7 in the morning, freshened up, had break fast and again boarded our cab to visit Diskit, Hunder then return to Ladakh. I was so excited to visit sand dunes, double humped camel in Hunder.
Trip to Khardungla & Nubra Valley is one of the must visit attractions when you are traveling to ladakh. This is not a regular road trip, be prepared for landslides, long traffic jams,breathlessness, spectacular views of valley and tasteless food(that’s better than nothing). The view of mountains keep on changing and you will end up taking hundreds of pictures of landscapes. Every time you have to remind yourself that you are traveling in India, not anywhere out of the world. There is one place in nubra valley, which literally blows you away, where at the same place; you can see desert, snowfall, waterfalls, river and cultivation.
