Nubra - Turtuk - Nubra

After breakfast leave for visit to Turtuk . Turtuk is about as close as you can get to Pakistan in India, physically and literally. This delightful village is crunched into the narrowing Shyok River valley in the furthest corner of India, right at the tippy-top of the map. Only when the Indo-Pakistan war ended in 1971, Turtuk (together with 5 other Balti villages) was then included within the Indian line of border control. It remained off limits until  a few  years ago and keeping it well off the the beaten track. Turtuk in every sense a treat – culturally intact, untainted by tourism and simply delightful .  Return back to Nubra valley for overnight stay.
