    Day 2

    Leh – Nimmu – Sham Valley – Alchi – Leh

    Today even the landscape speaks the language of love. After a delicious breakfast, set out towards the amazing Sham Valley. As you arrive at the amazing confluence of Indus and Zanskar Rivers at Nimmu, you will be enthralled at how the many-hued waters, ebb and flow into each other.

    Settle down, allow yourself to enjoy the delicious preparations packed into the special picnic hamper for two on the roof of the world by The Grand Dragon Ladakh. As you feast on the flavours, your eyes will do that same – on the colours, aromas and fragrances all around.

    FAST FACT:Nimmu.  This is where the two mighty rivers, the Zanskar and Indus rivers meet and flow on as Indus, a popular spot for rafting. Amazingly the water of the Indus is brown in the winters and blue in the summer, while Zanskar is blue-green in the winters and muddy brown ripples in the summer.

    Magnetic Hill. A gravity hill about 32 kms from Leh, believed to have magnetic properties strong enough to pull cars and force aircrafts to increase their altitude in order to escape magnetic interference.

    Likir Monastery. A Buddhist monastery just 52 kms west of Leh, perched atop a little hill by the Indus River, Likir is a repository of ancient artifacts: manuscripts, Thangka paintings, costumes and earthen pots. And on its roof, is a 75 ft. high gilded statue of the Maitreya Buddha!

    Gurudwara Pathar Sahib. A beautiful Gurudwara built in 1517 to commemorate the visit of the founder of the Sikh faith, Guru Nanak to Ladakh.
