Pangong Lake

A high-altitude lake known as Pangong Lake or Pangong Tso is renowned for its stunning blue water, which changes color three to four times every day from dawn to sunset due to golden mountains and sunrays.

The Changla pass, which is 17,590 feet (5,360 meters) high, must be crossed to reach the Pangong lake, which is roughly 150 kilometers (90 miles) from Leh (Chang-la). Pangong Lake is located at approximately 14,250 feet (4,350 m). The India-Sino Actual Line of Control traversed the lake and measures 134 km in length and 5 km in width at its widest point. Nearly 60 percent length of Pangong Tso resides in China held region. A lake with salt water is Pangong Lake.

Khardungla Pass

Khardungla pass, also known as Khardongla pass, is located about 38 kilometers north of Leh city and may be reached by taking a difficult road with a steep gradient and numerous hairpin curves.

One of the world’s highest roads and India’s highest road is the Leh-Khardungla pass-Nubra road. The height of Khardungla Pass above the mean sea level is 18,380 feet. The fact that the Khardungla pass is so high and mighty is what draws thousands of people there.

Many motorcycle riders worldwide travel to Khardungla pass to break their records for riding at altitudes higher than 18,000 feet. The view from the top of Khardung-la, where the Indian Army keeps a station, is magnificent since it offers a broader view of the mountain ranges.

Nubra Valley

The road to the Nubra valley, located to the north of Leh town, crosses the 18,380-foot-high Khardungla pass (also known as Khardongla), one of the highest motorable passes in the world and the highest in India. Laduma, which translates to “valley of flowers,” was the last name for Nubra.
The main towns in Nubra Valley are Diskit, Hunder, and Sumur. Diskit is 130 miles away from Leh. The main rivers in the valley are Shyok and Nubra (or Siachen). Due to the valley’s low elevation, Nubra Valley is warmer than Leh. Tourists must visit Nubra because of its broad and plain valleys, Hunder dunes, double-humped camels, and flora in various locations like an oasis in the desert.
Diskit Monastery
Diskit (Disket), around 120 kilometers from Leh, is the Nubra Valley’s administrative center. Diskit is known for its Diskit Monastery, the oldest and largest gompa in the Nubra valley, situated beside the Shyok River’s bank. Diskit is only 7 miles away from Hunder.
The Leh – Khardungla pass – Diskit (Nubra Valley) route, which travels through the 18,380-foot-high Khardung-la, is regarded as the highest motorable road in the world. Diskit is home to the majority of the Nubra Valley’s government buildings. Diskit settlement is located at an elevation of 10,480 feet. The Yellow-Hat sect (Gelugpa) of Tibetan Buddhism’s Diskit Monastery, a Buddhist gompa, is the reason for Nubra Valley’s fame.
