  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Tourist Attractions

Near Tangste Valley at Darbuk village, there lies a chain of war memorials with regimental insignias in remembrance of the soldiers who sacrificed their lives during the Indo-China war of 1962. Few of the army bunkers and trenches are still used. Tourists can see villagers here along with the huge herds of Pashmina sheep and long-tailed yaks.

The peaceful Pangong Lake is not only a tourist's paradise but also a geologist's domain. Tourists can enjoy the solitude here. Siberian crane around the marshes are the only breeding ground for migratory birds that can be seen swarming in the colourful water of the lake. The long and narrow lake is in the vicinity of the famous Chushul Mountains.

Pangong means extensive and the lake justifies it. The still water is cold, salty and hods ample amount of lime to create a calcareous deposit. It is believed that the large number of minerals can be seen in the basin of the lake. The water sparkles in different shades of green, blue, purple and violet. You can pick pebbles from under the water. If you are lucky, a fossil shell in the clay can also be rewarding for you.
