Leh :- Leh, the capital of Ladakh, situated on the banks of the Indus, at a height of 11,000 feet (3500 meters), and gives you an opportunity to explore the town of Leh, with its vibrant markets and discover the monasteries and the Indus valley. Few places in India are at once so traveller-friendly and yet so enchanting and hassle-free as mountain-framed Leh. Dotted with stupas and crumbling mud-brick houses, the Old Town is dominated by a dagger of steep rocky ridge topped by an imposing Tibetan-style palace and fort. Topographically, the whole of the district is mountainous with three parallel ranges of the Himalayas, the Zanskar, the Ladakh and the Karakoram. Between these ranges, the Shayok, Indus and Zanskar rivers flow and most of the population lives in valleys of these rivers.
This Ladakh tour package also gives you an opportunity to visit the Nubra valley, and crossing the Khardongla pass, supposedly the highest motorable road in the world. Leh’s a place that’s all too easy to fall in love with, but take things easy on arrival. The altitude means that most visitors initially suffer mild headaches and breathlessness. To prevent this becoming full-blown Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), drink plenty of ginger tea and avoid strenuous exertion at first. Climbing Palace Ridge or Shanti Stupa on your first two days in Leh is unwise unless you’re already altitude-acclimatised. Similarly it’s wise to wait before trekking or taking jeep excursions over high passes (to Nubra or Pangong).
Places of Interest :- Nubra Valley, Namgyal Tsemo Monastery, Thiksay Monastery, Shanti Stupa, Stok Monastery, Leh Palace, Magnet Hill, Sankar Monastery
