DAY 01: ARRIVE LEH
Arrive Leh by morning flight and drop at the hotel. After a welcome drink, take complete rest for acclimatization to the height altitude of Leh (3500 meters). In the early evening, drive to the city for an orientation walk in the markets‚ followed by a Shanti Stupa‚ Leh palace tour. Dinner and overnight in the hotel.
SHANTI STUPA is located on the top of the hill in Chanspa, Leh district, Ladakh, in the north Indian state of Leh.
Shanti Stupa is a known Buddhist white-domed stupa. It was established by Japanese Buddhist Bhikshu Gyomyo Nakamura in 1991. The Shanti Stupa holds the Buddha’s relics at its base, enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama himself. Shanti stupa has beautiful and panoramic scenery of the surrounding landscape. This has become one of the main reason for Shanti Stupa to become a popular tourist attraction, apart from its religion.
THE LEH PALACE, also famous as ‘Lhachen Palkhar,’ is a 17th-century former royal palace and one of the central attractions in Leh. Established under the patronage of King Sengge Namgyal, it used to house his family. The 9-storey dun-coloured palace now houses a museum and a prayer room, while the highlight is the sweeping scenery of Leh and the Zanskar mountain from the top.
DAY 02: LEH – EXCURSION TO SHAM VALLEY (65 KMS / 04 HRS – ONE WAY)
Post breakfast, you drive downstream along the River Indus on Leh – Kargil Highway. And begin our sightseeing with Hall Of Fame (Museum Constructed by India Army) near Leh is justified a visit for every Indian, and proceed further to Gurudwara Patthar Sahib at an altitude of 3600 metres about 22 kms from Leh was built in memory of Guru Nanak Dev Ji Nestled deep in the Himalayas, A journey of another 4 km took us to Magnetic Hill which defies the law of gravity. As you move ahead from Magnetic Hills, just before Nimmu Village, a famous Confluence Of Two Rivers Indus River comes from Tibet (left) and Zanskar River coming from Zanskar Valley (right). After seeing the confluence, we head to Alchi Gompa; the complex of temples situated within the village is the most celebrated of Ladakh’s monasteries and dates back to the 11th century. After visiting Alchi, we back towards Leh en route. Visiting Likir Monastery was established in the 11th century and was again re-built in the 18th century and houses a 25-feet Lord gold-covered Buddha Statue. After that, we drive back to Leh. Dinner and overnight at Hotel in Leh.
HALL OF FAME, an essential stopover on the tourist circuit, the Hall of Fame embodies patriotism and displays the bravery of Indian soldiers and their fearless achievements. As you go through the OP Vijay Gallery, which showcases weaponry used in the Kargil War and sees the elaborate display of the war documents, uniforms worn at the Siachen glacier and others, you will be loaded up with a feeling of pride. The letters written by soldiers to their families, photographs clicked during wars fought in the region, and a thirty-minute documentary on the Kargil War are highlights. On the second floor, guns and equipment detained by the Indian Army during its confrontations with the Pakistan army have been put up as exhibits. The museum also houses a souvenir shop. The hall has been established inside a museum erected by the Indian Army in honour of soldiers who perished during the many wars battled.
MAGNETIC HILL Perched at an altitude of 14,000 ft, Magnetic Hill is one of the country’s most intriguing spots. This tiny hillock is said to defy gravity as it tends to pull vehicles upwards. It is pretty thrilling to defy the laws of science and be removed in the opposite direction. The scientific theory states a robust magnetic force emanating from the hills that defies gravity at this particular spot. It is a good pitstop on the highway and serves as a break in between mundane road travel. Do note that it is best to visit between May to September when the road is easily accessible. A board marks the magnetic hill location, so it cannot be missed while driving down the highway. Local Ladakhi superstition believes that the road is a straight stairway to heaven.
CONFLUENCE OF THE ZANSKAR: Indus river is originated from the great Himalayan ranges, and the Zanskar river originates from the Zanskar ranges. Zanskar river is shiny blue; on the other hand, Indus looks a little green. Zanskar meets Indus in Nimmu valley from the north-east. This is a scenic view for the visitors, and they find it fascinating to mark both the rivers even after their confluence.
GURUDWARA PATHAR SAHIB is a highly revered gem located 25 miles away from Leh town on Kargil Leh Highway. Devoted to Guru Nanak Devi Ji, the founder of Sikh Religion, the sacred place beautifully commemorate his visit to Ladakh. Dating back to 1517, the Gurudwara houses a boulder with imprints of Shree Guru Nanak Dev’s head, shoulders, and backside.
ALCHI GOMPA The architecture of Alchi Monastery is of Tibetan style. The monastery complex has three significant shrines – the Dukhang (Assembly hall), the Sumtsek and the Temple of Manjushri. There are also chortens in the complex.
Wall paintings are the major attractions here as they depict details of both Buddhist style and Kashmiri style. The complex houses a massive statue of the Buddha and lavish wood carvings and artwork, similar to baroque style.
