Visit to Turtuk
After a sumptuous breakfast, head out to Turtuk. India’s last major settlement, Turtuk, has a couple of gompas overlooking the Shyok river. Listen close as locals here speak an interesting Balti language that uses old Tibetan sounds no longer used in modern Tibetan. Get a glimpse of the beauty of Turtuk as you go through this lost little village, India’s northernmost near the Line of Control.
Lunch will be simple Ladakhi fare at a local restaurant and you drive back to Hunder along the beautiful Shyok. There are plenty of places you can stop for photography. Stop to view the highest airfield at Thoise. Back in Hunder for a quiet evening.
