Some of the must-visit tourist attractions in Ladakh
The Nubra Valley is a few hours north of Leh. This is where the Shiwak and Siachen rivers meet. This valley separates Ladakh from the Karakoram ranges and the mighty Siachen Glacier. The valley is accessible via the world’s highest motor road: Khardong La. Along the Nubra Valley are the Sasser Pass and the famous Karakoram Pass, which connects Nobra to Xinjiang, China. The village of Panamik is the last settlement at the northern tip of the Nobra Valley and is open to tourists. Nubra’s magnificent landscapes, rugged mountains, and high altitudes attract adventure tourists from all over the world. Nubra Valley is the most beautiful region in all of Ladakh. We can find some amazing attractions such as Yarab Tso Lake, Hunder Sand Dunes, Samstanling Gompa, Diskit Monastery, and the villages of Turtuk and Panamik.
Diskit Gompa is also located at a height of about 200 meters. Above the village, on the spur of a rocky mountain and at the most imposing point, it has a clear view of the entire central part of Nubra. Samstanling Gonpa is situated in the north, opposite Diskit Gonpa. This Gonpa is equally important and recreationally assumes greater importance by being situated on a commanding scenic overlook in the foothills of the Karakoram ranges above the villages of Tegar and Sumoor, amid abundant water and tall vegetation. The main villages through Kardong, Khalsar, Tirit, Sumoor, Tegar Pinchemik, Trisha, and Panamik are located along the traditional silk road. Caravans traveling through Central Asia and Kashmir through the Nubra Valley used to stay in those villages.
Panamik was the most important place for the caravan stop. It served as the last major town where caravans landed at the feedback facility before negotiating the Saseer and Karakoram passes into Central Asia. The famous Panamik hot spring also served as a source for baths, drinking water, and therapeutic purposes. Panamik still has charms and the potential to play host to travelers. All the areas around it, including Iantsa Gonpa and Murgi waterfall, combined with panoramic views, strengthen its beauty and hospitality.

A visit to Pangong Lake, spread over 604 square kilometers, is a must-see during a trip to Ladakh. Very few people miss this beautiful destination during their trip. With the LOC crossing the lake, an inner line permit used to be necessary to visit Pangong Tso until 2014; however, with the new rule, Indian citizens no longer need any permission to visit Pangong Lake.
To get to Pangong Tso, one has to go over the Chang La Pass at 17,590 feet, it is the third highest passable pass. At the pass, there is a shrine dedicated to Chang La Baba, after whom the pass is named. Pangong Tso appeared in the last scene of the movie, 3 Idiots. Since then it has become a household name!
Pangong Lake, located at an altitude of about 4,350 meters, is the highest saltwater lake in the world. Its water, which appears to be painted blue, stands in stark contrast to the surrounding barren mountains. Spread over about 160 km, Pangong Lake is one-third in India and two-thirds in China. Lake Pangong, one of the most famous lakes in Leh Ladakh, derives its name from the Tibetan word “Pangong Tsu”, meaning “Lake of High Grass”. You can spend hours meditating here, and yet its beauty is not enough. Pangong Lake is also known for its color-changing colors, which appear blue, green, and red at different times. If you decide to visit Ladakh anytime, don’t forget to visit Pangong Lake. The beauty that awaits you there cannot be described in words. It has to be seen, felt, and absorbed.

Turtuk, a beautiful village in the Nubra Valley, is inhabited by the Balti tribe, situated a few kilometers from the Line of Control between India and Pakistan. It is the northernmost town in India, in the Leh district of Jammu and Kashmir. One of the main things to explore in Turtuk is 16th-century old minarets and mosques, the ruins of Pun Khar – the Royal House of Yabgo Dynasty, majestic views of Mount K2, the isolated village, the Natural Freezing Point, and the historic Polo Ground. Turtuk has preserved the traditions that link it to its Balti roots. Polo is an important part of that tradition. Every year on March 21, the first day of Navroz, the best polo players from You and Faroul (the two parts of Turtuk connected by an old and rickety wooden bridge) gather to play a match at the Polo Ground, located at an altitude of over 9,300 feet. Other attractions here include monasteries and museums. Although there are guesthouses in Turtuk, this amazing town is best explored in camps.

Khardung La, also known as Khardzong La, is a high mountain pass in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, near Leh. It serves as a gateway to Shyok and the Nubra Valley. Khardung La is popular as the highest motorable road in India at an elevation of 5602 meters. Contrary to belief, however, its actual elevation is 5,359 meters, making Dungri La the highest motorable road pass in India.
Khardung La Pass is a perfect getaway for adventure enthusiasts, peace seekers, and mountain bikers. Tourists require an internal line permit to enter and travel through the pass. Due to heavy rain and snowfall, the Khardung La Pass is closed from October to May.

Khardung La was built in 1976 and opened to the public in 1988. The pass is very important to India as it is used to transport supplies to the Siachen Glacier.

Tso Moriri attracts a wide variety of wildlife, including migratory birds, marmots, and rarely Tibetan wolves. The beautiful numerous shades of blue that the lake offers a charming view of its surroundings give the place a very romantic and inspiring feel. However, in reality, this place is extremely hard and difficult to survive, especially in winter.
