Shyok Valley Rd, Turtuk
After a few hours on the road we came across the Shyok River flowing parallel to the road. The surroundings became dusty and sandy and it seemed like we came far away from the familiar rocky terrain of Ladakh. I was spell-bound with views of huge mountains of sand and rock with the Shyok river flowing in the valley.

Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.

About Turtuk

Hunder-TurtukWe were going to Turtuk today (permits required). Turtuk is the farthest accessible points for the tourists in India and has been opened in 2010. We had added this place in our itinerary only by reading a single article of a traveler and we weren’t disappointed. It was actually heaven. The picturesque border village situated along the famous Silk Route is something you shouldn’t miss. The drive to Turtuk is a gallery of unspeakable beauty.We reached Turtuk around lunch time. We checked into our camps (Turtuk Holiday Camps) and had lunch. After relaxing a bit, we left to explore the village. The camp manager became our guide for today. The village is very scenic with plenty of apricot trees all over the village. A stroll through the village was beautiful. The natural refrigerator in the middle of the village is something not to be missed.
