What to Expect

Most of Ladakh is at an altitude of more than 3000m so you need to get acclimatized before you can set out to travel. Your body needs to adapt to high altitude, as the higher you go, the air becomes rarified and the oxygen available for you to breathe becomes lesser. Even though your body is capable of adapting to ‘thin air’, you need to give it time to do so. This is what is called acclimatization.

  • Complete rest at the hotel to acclimatize to the high altitude region of Ladakh
  • Take short steps and stop if you are breathless. You may not be able to walk here like you do it back home
  • Always carry warm clothes while travelling, because weather in the mountains can change any minute
  • Do not venture out on the first day
  • It is advisable not to take bath or shower on the first day as you might catch cold due to the exposure. So, keep warm and cozy on first day and avoid bathing
  • Do not consume alcohol for the initial 2 days or your arrival in Leh
  • Smokers should avoid smoking on the day of arrival
  • Do not spend more than 10 minutes at high altitudes of Khardungla and Changla passes

We recommend Diamox medicine to counter the effects of Acute Mountain Sickness. However, PLEASE CONSULT DOCTOR before you start your course.

Itinerary

Day 1ARRIVAL Leh

Welcome arrival at Leh airport and transfer to hotel. Complete day for rest and leisure to acclimatize to the high altitude region of Ladakh. Most of Ladakh is at an altitude of more than 3000m so you need to get acclimatized before you can set out to travel. Your body needs to adapt to high altitude, as the higher you go, the air becomes rarified and the oxygen available for you to breathe becomes lesser. Even though your body is capable of adapting to ‘thin air’, you need to give it time to do so. This is what is called acclimatization. If you are comfortable then you can visit the Leh market & Shanti Stupa in the evening.

Day 2Leh - Excursion to Monasteries

Post breakfast we proceed for the Indus valley monastery tour including Shey, the ancient capital of Ladakh, Thiksey an impressive complex rising tier upon tier on a hill above the village and Stok Palace the present residence of the royal family. Enjoy the views at Sindhu Ghat.

Day 3Leh to Nubra valley (120 kms / 5 hrs)

After an early breakfast we drive to Nubra valley crossing Khardungla pass – the highest motorable road in the world at 18,380 ft. Nubra is a tri-armed valley located to the north east of Ladakh valley. Diskit the capital of Nubra is about 150 km north from Leh town, the capital of Ladakh district, India. Local scholars say that its original name was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). The Shayok River meets the Nubra or Siachen River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. The Shayok River is a tributary of the Indus River. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. i.e. 3048 metres above the sea level. Visit the Diskit monastery and the Hunder sand dunes to enjoy a camel safari (optional). Check in and enjoy your evening at the campsite.

Pangong Lake, situated at 14,000 feet (4,267 m) is a long narrow basin of inland drainage, hardly six to seven kilometer at its widest point and over 130km in length. It is bisected by the international border between India and China. Enjoy the landscape in the back drop of the lake.

We stop at the confluence of the Indus and Zanskar rivers and drive further to Alchi monastery. 70 Kms from Leh, on the banks of the Indus, is the Alchi Gompa dating a thousand years back. One of its walls features thousands of miniature sized pictures of the Buddha. Three large sized images made of clay and painted brightly are its focal attractions. No longer an active religious center, it is looked after by monks from the Liker monastery. This is the only monastery amongst 34 monasteries, which is not located on a hilltop. We drive back to the hotel in Leh.
