DAY 04: Leh to Turtuk (5-6 hrs.)
Turtuk was in Pakistan till the 1971 war, during this Indo- Pak war Indian forces occupied Turtuk. Turtuk is not literally the last village but among the largest villages close to the border. For many its just because of the history or the view of Pakistan, but the awestruck landscape of the Balti village makes it a perfect spot for landscape Photography and also for portraits of local villagers
DAY 05: Turtuk to Pangong Lake (6Hrs.)
Situated at 4300m Pangong is one of the largest High Altitude lake in the world. Instead of staying at crowded touristy Spagmik where hundreds of camps are just situated next to each other, we will proceed further to Maan village. A scenic yet quiet Ladakhi Village on the shore of mighty Pangong. Here we will indulge ourselves in capturing different shades of Pangong and also the local villagers and their lifestyle. If we are lucky we might spot wildlife & Birds here, like - Himalayan Marmot, Kiang - Tibetan Wild Ass, Black necked Crane etc
DAY 06:Pangogn to Tso Moriri (7-8 Hrs.)
Rise early in the morning to capture some unforgettable snaps of the deep blue waters of the lake against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains of unimaginable hues.
Then Proceed to Tso Moriri after Breakfast. Today is the Longest drive. Today the road goes through very close to Indo - Tibetan Border and vi many Nomadic Villages, completely uninhabited region of Ladakh. Huge scope to spot many wildlife and birds and also to witness Nomadic Lives.
After arriving at Tso Moriri, check in at the Camp / Hotel
DAY 07: Tso Moriri to Leh via Tso Kar (7-8 Hrs.)
Afternoon you continue your journey to TSO KAR. You will be retracing your path till Puga Sumdoo from where you turn left. What catches your eye is that the large basin of the valley that you would be traveling through is absolutely white with salt deposits. About 4 km from Puga Sumdoo you suddenly start experiencing a very strong smell of sulphur. Immediately on the right of the road, you will find large amounts of sulphur deposits with yellow rocks and the heat being generated by these sulphur springs is clearly discernable. An hour’s drive brings you to Polo Kongka Pass (4920 M). This is a long and wide pass and gives you the feeling of driving on a tabletop. The descent takes you through a deserted nomad village, whose houses now only have half-standing walls.
On getting to the bottom of this descent you get your first glimpse of Tso Kar also called “White Lake” because of the salt deposits around it. It is a small lake with a backdrop formed by a chain of snow-peaked mountains. The waters are deep blue in colour and the mountains, like the rest of the Ladakhi landscape are of varying shades of brown and purple with snow-capped peaks. The banks are covered with salt deposits. The water of the lake is so salty that the salt that is deposited on its banks is sold all over Ladakh and Kashmir. A Nomad Headquarters (Samad Rockchen) is located next to the lake.

I went to many excursions in Goa with Euphoric Trail with their Goa Team not once but many times. In 2017 i traveled to Andaman and Golden Triangle with Euphoric Trail. Thanks a lot guys for your warm hospitality and taking care of our every needs. Best Of Luck. Anyone coming to India I recommend Euphoric Trail.
Me and 3 of my friends have been thinking of doing the Sandakphu Trek for many years. So, at last we did it in 2019, and Suhit himself actually lead the group so it was amazing, his knowledge of wildlife and the Birds made the trip extra special, as we got a lot of nice shots. Thanks a lot, and best of luck. Carry on doing what you are doing.
Though I live in a sea Resort Goa, last year I visited Andaman Island, and i am happy that I chose Euphoric Trail for the Package Tour. I know Suhit for more than 10 years and he is true professional, he loves India and every bit of it. The whole journey was smooth and service was a class.
