It’s not always about the destination, it is about the journey too.
Ladakh is a place where you enjoy being on the road as much as the destination. The scenic views out your window keep your mind away from that ‘are we there yet?’ You take mental pictures of the landscapes. And, we have so many mental and digital memories of our Leh Ladakh trip.
We had heard a lot about Leh Ladakh’s natural beauty. The harsh weather conditions in Leh Ladakh along with the high altitude did not deter us from taking a trip to the top. This time, we were open for an adventure and exploring India’s most beautiful place. So, we got in touch with Travel Triangle and booked a trip as per our customizations. The next thing we know, we were on our adventure in Ladakh.
Here is how we planned a trip to Leh Ladakh.

Places We Visited On Leh Ladakh Trip
Here’s a list of all the scintillating places to see in Leh Ladakh that we ticked off our list during our fun escapade. Take a look!
The confluence of Zanskar and Indus is one of the most beautiful tricks of nature. The barren mountains sprouted with shrubbery here and there overlook the river. The whole scenery was stupendous. The mental image is etched deep in my mind. We could clearly see the difference between the colors of the two rivers. It is almost magical how the waters mix together.
Because we had to ride all the way up to the second-highest mountain pass in the world! Since the weather in Leh Ladakh was still cold, the snow had not melted. There were snowclad mountains all around the pass. It was a feast to our eyes and the feeling of being at an altitude of 17,582 ft was amazing.
Pangong Lake was must to justify the best itinerary for Leh Ladakh. We had a lovely time by the lake and so many pictures by the lake, with that famous scooter from 3 Idiots too. The night was spent inside the tents by the lakes. It was truly a night to remember. Even the route from Nubra Valley to Pangong along Shyok River was astounding.
Druk Padma Karpo School
We even visited the school run by the person who inspired the character of Rancho from 3 Idiots movie. The school is located amidst beautiful scenery and the walls are decorated with colorful graffiti. I wish my school were like that.
