Best Things To Do in Leh

Leh is a town in the Leh district of the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir. Buddhist sites and nearby trekking areas, camping, camel safaris and games of polo are the best things to do in Leh. It was the capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh, the seat of which was in the Leh Palace. The massive Leh Palace, modelled on Tibet’s Potala Palace which was the Dalai Lama’s former home is a must see, among other monasteries and Hot water springs which are part of the best tourist places in Leh.  

Foodies must try local Ladakhi food, like Thukpa, Sku and Khambir which is nourishing and usually mildly flavoured. If you love shopping then visit the shops in the local markets for curios and souvenirs. Khardung La, Magnetic Hills, Nubra Valley, Shanti stupa and Tso Moriri are some amazing places to visit in Leh.

Leh has a cold desert climate with long, harsh winters from October to early March. The minimum temperatures can go well below freezing for most of the winter. You can also enjoy occasional snowfall during winter. The weather in the remaining months is generally fine and warm during the day. If you want to get away from the extreme heat of the plains then Leh is the best place to visit. If Kashmir is the Paradise on earth then Leh too is not to be left behind. Nestled between the Himalayas and the Karakoram Range, Leh attracts tourists with majestic snow covered mountain tops, lush green landscape and sparkling blue waters of its lakes.

Leh is connected to the rest of India by two high-altitude roads - The National Highway 1D from Srinagar via Kargil and the Leh-Manali Highway. Leh Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport has flights to Delhi, Jammu and Srinagar. You are sure to get lured to the place once you visit and try out all the best things to do in Leh.

Pangong Lake

Rather, the most sought after tourist destination is Pangong Tso in Ladakh region. It is the highest among the high altitude lakes in India which is filled with saline water but provides some awe-struck moments to the visitors with the unbelievable phenomenon of changing colours quite a number of times a day.

The reflections of the towering Himalayan peaks in the water add more charm to the lake. Currently, Pangong Tso is the favorite location for tourists as the banks of the lake give soothing bed to relax and the nearby places are enhanced by the beauty of this particular lake. The quiet lake is 134 km in length and 5 km in width is situated at an altitude of 14270 meters. But the major share of the lake lies in the area of China. Now, its recognition is spread everywhere in the world because it is termed as a wetland of international importance under the Ramsar Convention.

The highly saline water does not accommodate any water species not even micro-organisms. But the banks of the lake give space for several birds and animals very rarely seen in the other parts of India. It is an important breeding ground for many migratory birds as well.

Height: The lake is located at an altitude of 4250 meters above the sea level.

Location: Pangong Tso is easily accessible as it can be reached after a five hour drive from Leh and the travel would be on a rough and dramatic mountain road. You will cross the villages of Shey and Gya during the tour and go through Chang La as well.

Best time to visit: The months from May to September are the ideal time to visit the lake as the other seasons may cause challenges due to the heavy snowfall.

Nubra Valley

Something divine makes Nubra Valley close to heart and it is not an exaggeration but a fact that experienced and shared by the countless tourists visited the paradisiacal location in Jammu and Kashmir. Without touching the spectacular roads of Nubra Valley, a Ladakh tour will not be complete. The tri armed valley has Diskit Village as its capital. Ldumra, a magnificent name is the original name of the valley as the local scholars insist. Ldumra means Valley of Flowers. The large valley is formed after the merging of Shyok River with Nubra or Siachen River causing the separation of the Ladakh and the Karakoram Ranges. The valley is located 10000 feet that is 3048 meters above mean sea level and those who cross the Khardung La Pass can easily come to Nubra Valley from Leh.

Except the river beds, every other place in the valley shows scant vegetation and low precipitation levels. Most of the villages in the valley are occupied by Nubra skat speakers and in the villages, one can find lush greenery and farming which happen through the regular irrigation. Diskit is the place where native people are seen in abundance and Diskit Monastery is the entre of attraction as well. The Shyok River flowing on one side of Diskit has a captivating effect on the visitors.

Tso Moriri Lake

The length comes to 26 km north to south and 3 to 5 km is the width and the water is wholly brackish. 

The water to feed the lake comes from the springs and melted snow from the nearby mountains. There are two major stream systems to lead the water to the lake. One in the north part of the lake and the other comes in the southwest part. Huge, extensive marshes are seen at both the entrances of the lake. Rupshu Valley, a breathtaking area is the guardian of Tso Moriri along with an array of the lofty Himalayan Mountains in the surrounding.

The number of people come to witness the beauty of this splendid lake is lesser when compared to that of Pangong Lake. It is because of the secluded location of the lake. Hence, it is a favorite home town for many migratory birds. They come to breed here especially birds like great- crested grebe, the brown-headed gull and the Brahmin duck. The rare Himalayan hares are also abundantly seen near the lake. Thus, the declaration of the lake as a reserved area is a right option to protect these species from extinction. Less human interference would keep their lives strong.

Location: You can reach Tso Moriri via road from Leh. It is 150 kms away from Leh Airport. Kalka Railway station is the nearest one to the lake. You will get buses and taxis from the station as well.

This trip is a must do for the bikers as well as the nature lovers.

It was a truly amazing experience as we rode on our bikes from Manali to Leh. From the snowy mountains to the vast green trees covered with snow makes everything perfect for us. We also had a back up bike and 01 backup jeep to carry luggage and mechanic. While riding my bike broke down near the Tsomoriri Lake. But the backup mechanic was real in dealing with the issue and it was good to go again. While riding you will be riding at a speed of 120-130 on the highways. Also, be careful while you ride in the roads of Leh passes. It was really an unforgettable experience for us.

This trip was awesome. I had the best biking experience ever with this trip. It was so brilliant. The drive through was mind boggling. I loved it totally. If you are a biker, then it is a sin, if you have not taken Ladakh bike trip. Visited almost all the famous of places of Leh. I had an amazing 7 days in the paradise of bikers. The whole trip was very well organized.

I had a nice and an awesome time while trekking and walking in the frozen ice path of Chadar mountains. The walk on ice trek in Chadar was the best trek that I had ever taken.

A pure learning experience throughout. It is a golden chance to meet different types of people and their attitude towards a precious location. A magic destination worth spending your money and time. Leh Ladakh won’t disappoint you but gives you a lot of tricky challenges on the way. My dream come true was this trip to Leh. Booking through Thrillophilia helped me forget all the worries about the package. I am from Delhi so it was so easy for me to find the service providers. I would thank them for giving us a nice transportation. From Manali to Leh and return, everything they arranged was neat and tidy. As a traveller I was looking for decent service than a luxurious one and in these places you will not find posh things. I had the best time of my lives. But had to go through some tough roads and places and the journeys were all long. Some time I felt that it was only travelling. If there were something like trekking or similar, the trip would have been much better. The bike ride they provided in between was incredible. As a whole, I have less complaints about the package and more good memories.

It was my dream come true. I have been planning to do a Himalayan ride for last two three years. Finally I found something interesting here on this site. Rather 12 days would make you tired, but the scenery will not disappoint you. You will understand why people are keeping Ladakh as one of the dream like destinations. I thought I will fall down many time during the trip but thank God I came back home without much bruises and wounds. But if you follow a steady pace and keep calm, you can enjoy the side views, many of them are pekans and top areas. There was a bus service from Delhi to Manali but I directly went to Manali to join the team. The guides gave us one route map and an instruction kind of thing. So the route was not confusing. Then, they were always with us. It is very easy to feel altitude sickness at many locations, you will heavy inside your head. But once you get familiarised with it, then you will ok. Also, it was cold throughout. But as a whole, it was an awesome time in the Himalayan valleys.
