Things To Do

5 Days Trip(Customizable)


Day 1: Arrive in Leh

We will suggest you some hotels according to your needs

The second task would be to get an Inner Line Permit if you already did not arrange for it.

You can either hire a private taxi or rent a motorcycle after you land in Leh. In case you hired a taxi, then I recommend that you book it in advance and have the driver pick you up from the airport itself.

In the case of a motorcycle, it is best that you first reach Leh, and check out a few motorcycles to ensure they are working in the best possible condition before you rent one. Please read leh ladakh motorcycle rent rates.

After taking care of this, you can either choose to rest in the hotel or do some local sightseeing in the town. Leh Palace, Shanti Stupa, local markets, and monasteries are some of the places you can visit.

Day 2: Leh to Lamayuru to Leh

The plan for today is to take a drive on the Srinagar Leh highway and return to Leh by evening. Do not plan Nubra Valley or Pangong Tso for this day as it is just your second day in Ladakh.

AMS can still hurt so it is best to not go towards a high-altitude pass on Day 2, which you will have to cross in order to reach Nubra and Pangong both.

For the second day, ask your driver to pick you up from the airport early in the morning and start driving towards Lamayuru. On the way, you will see gurudwara patthar sahib, Indus – Zanskar Confluence, and magnetic hill, apart from the natural beauty of Srinagar Leh road.

Go as far as you are able to until noon and then start your return journey.

Day 3: Leh to Nubra Valley

By now, your body would already have acclimatized to high altitude and symptoms of AMS subsided. On this day, you will cross your first high-altitude pass, Khardung La, and reach the enchanting Nubra Valley.

An early start from Leh is highly recommended as it would give you ample time for sightseeing on the way.khardunga is merely 30 odd kilometers from Leh and it shouldn’t take you more than a couple of hours to get there. At the top of the pass, there is an Army canteen where they serve tea and some refreshments.

Have a cup of tea, click a few pictures, see the snow-capped peaks around, and be on your way. Road conditions are mostly OK except for around the top of the pass, between South and North Pullu.

From Khardung Top, you will descend down towards Nubra Valley while crossing the village of Khardung on the way. You can either stay at Diskit, Panamik, Sumur, Hunder, or Turtuk. Of all these, I will recommend that you stay at Diskit because the choice of hotels and guest houses here is the widest.

Depending on your breaks and speed, you should reach Diskit well in time for some sightseeing as well. Diskit Monastery, the Buddha statue, Hunder sand dunes, and Bactrian camels are some of the most famous tourist attractions in Nubra Valley and can easily be covered in 2-3 hours.

Day 4: Nubra Valley to Pangong Tso

The plan for today is to visit Pangong Tso, the lake that has over time become the very symbol of Ladakh. You will not have to come back to Leh and will take the direct road connecting Nubra to Pangong.

There are two connecting routes, one via Shyok village and the other via Wari La. Of the two, I will recommend that you take the Shyok Road because it is the shortest of the two. Traveling via Shyok Road will see you at the banks of Pangong within 5-6 hours whereas the road across Wari La will easily take you about 10-11 hours.

There is not really much to see on this road except for the natural beauty. You will be traveling right next to the Shyok river and the journey will be quite scenic.

Once at the lake, you can choose to stay at either the campsites or guest houses available. 

Day 5: Fly Back Home

You will take a flight back home on Day 6, bringing an end to your 5 days trip to Leh Ladakh.
