Ulleytokpo is one of the well known trekking bases and camping in Ulleytokpo is considered one of the most beautiful experiences, amidst the snow draped mountains. Lamayuru is the oldest religious centre of Ladakh. The Monastery here beats all others in sheer grandeur and in its uniqueness of wood carving, statues and frescoes. Gurdwara Pathar Sahib, built in 1517, is a beautiful Gurudwara constructed in the memory of Guru Nanak to commemorate his visit to the Ladakh region. At Magnetic Hill it has been noticed that when a vehicle is parked on a neutral gear the vehicle slides up-hill due to the magnetic force.

Day 04:- Leh – Khardongla Pass – Leh (Altitude 5602 Mrts. 45 Kms. 1 ½ hrs Drive

Morning after breakfast proceed for an unforgettable drive to the top of the world's highest motorable mountain pass Khardongla, located in the Ladakh region, The Siachen Glacier lies partway up the latter valley. Built in 1976, it was opened to motor vehicles in 1988 and has since seen many automobile, motorbike and mountain biking expeditions. Maintained by the Border Roads Organization, the pass is strategically important to India as it is used to carry essential supplies to the Siachen. Khardongla is historically important as it lies on the major caravan route from Leh to Kashgar in Chinese Central Asia. About 10,000 horses and camels used to take the route annually, and a small population of Bactrian camels can still be seen at Hundar, in the area north of the pass, mute witnesses to history. During World War II there was a futile attempt to transfer war material to China through this route. Khardung La is widely, but incorrectly, believed to be the world's highest motorable pass. Return back to leh by visiting the monasteries Shanti Stupa (Details: - Shanti Stupa of Ladakh is located on the hilltop at Changspa. It can be reached quite easily from the Fort Road. The Stupa was constructed by a Japanese Buddhist organization, known as 'The Japanese for World Peace'. The aim behind the construction of the stupa was to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism and to promote World Peace. His Holiness, the Dalai Lama inaugurated the Shanti Stupa in the year 1985.A magnificent white-domed structure, the Shanti Stupa of Leh Ladakh offers spectacular views of the sunrise and sunset. The stupa looks best at night, when it is beautifully illuminated with glittering lights. A large number of tourists come to Ladakh every year to visit this amazing stupa.)

Day 05:- Leh – Pangong Lake – Leh (Altitude 4300 Mtrs. 140 6 Hours Drive)

Early morning leave after breakfast to Pangong Lake which is the largest brackish lake in Asia, with a larger part of it extending into Tibet. The lake is 130 km long and 5 km at its widest point with half of it running to the other side of the Indo-China border. Despite of being a salt-water lake, it freezes completely during winter. There is no marine life here, save for a few migrating birds now and then like gulls and brahminy ducks. Being at the border, the furthest point one is allowed to go to, is Spangmik, about 7 km along its western bank, but it is enough to take back the most beautiful memories of Ladakh. The very barren-ness and vastness of the area contributes to its striking beauty. Spangmik offers spectacular views of the mountains of the Changchenmo range to the north, and their reflections in the ever-changing blues and greens of the lake's brackish waters. Above Spangmik, one can see the glaciers and snowcapped peaks of the Pangong range.

Late evening return back to leh dinner & overnight stay at Hotel.

 

Day 06 – Depart Leh - Kushok Bakula Airport
