The much awaited leg of my trip started with the local bus to nubra valley All the bus drivers here in Leh were extremely helpful especially for the tourists who intend to take some pictures and spend sometime in sightseeing places on the route
After passing the majestic Khardung la and Khardung village, the scenery takes a shift as it enters the nubra and shyok valley.
The highlight of the valley were the silver sanddunes and shyok river flowing alongside
The first stop was diskit from where I took another local bus to turtuk. It is almost unbelievable to eyes when the views change almost every 100kms in the area.
As you reach Turtuk, you can feel the changing views and greenery. Turtuk is one of the northernmost villages of India. The wheat fields, flowers, greenery, wooden bridge, monastery and waterfall make this village very picturesque.
Most of the people from this village spoke balti language and had balti food. Some of them were kashmiri and Ladakhi as well.
