Ladakh, the land of many possibilities, the world of adventure for a lot of its visitors. Each Leh Tour package, each Leh trip, each tour seems to take us to a different part of it and in a different way and yet there is so much left to discover. It makes me wonder about Ladakh as a wonderland with an infinite number of possibilities and explorations lying ahead. With each Leh Tour package it feels to be somewhat closer to the end of it yet so far.
The Line of Control tour package is about to taking control of the tour to most of the parts of Ladakh. The main criteria of this package to cover a larger are with this small trip of 11 Days.
The package starts the tour with the Sham Valley which is one of the most mesmerizing scenery of Ladakh. The greeting mountains of this valley seem to embrace you on your first day. The blue water of the Indus River flowing by sings to you the welcome song with its water flowing and making the soothing music while gushing at the shores. As the place seems to have a change in altitude the body seems to learn to adapt to these changes showing the magic of nature. The creations of god, which seem to mix with each other’s nature with just a slight contact of the air between them. The package also includes one more symbol of beauty the Nubra Valley which is also one of the beautiful sceneries and the Sham Valley and Nubra Valley both leave the tourists awestruck with their unimaginable glittering snowy mountains and crystal clear waters.
The Leh Tour package not only includes places of history but also the places which remind us of the wars, the prides, the sacrifices that our soldiers have made. The history that is glorious as we won and also terrorizing as we remember those wars and the bloodshed. The spots like Batalik, Kargil, Turtuk which are a living memory of these wars. Batalik (famous warzone) and Kargil are the ones which remind us of the wars with Pakistan fought at the time of 1999. These remind us of our unforgettable victory and also sharp strategies of our soldiers which won us a war which was extremely tough to win. Yet seeing this also reminds us of their sacrifices and bloodshed. These places fill your heart with the patriotic love and dedication for your country. Turtuk reminds us of the times during 1971. During that war this village was captured by our soldiers from the clutches of Pakistan. A visit to the Tyakshi, the dividing border between India and Pakistan is quite a view. These places are quite a trip to remember for a lifetime.
