Must visit for adventure seeker

This is one must visit for everyone who could. Do try lemon tee and Maggie there. If possible, move ahead and go to San dunes.

Really bad road leading upto and down the pass. The feeling cannot be described. nature at its raw best. Should be an addition to everyone's... More

Visiting the Khardungla is almost a rite of passage for all of those visiting Leh to be ticked off the bucket list as it were. One can make a day trip to visit the pass and return to Leh or carry on to Nubra valley. The road condition is good till the top but disintegrates on the Nubra valley side.... More

Highest motorable pass - a must visit. This is on the way to Nubra valley - very beautiful and scenic. No words or pictures can justify the beauty of this region - it has to be witnessed in person !
