We begin our journey towards the IndoPak border for a village named Turtuk. Drive through the highest motorable pass in the world, the KhardungLa.
Turtuk is the last accessible village of North India before LOC. Enjoy the chatter of shy kids, long walks in green fields to the village monastery, ancient stories embedded in stone scriptures, and some brilliant Balti Cuisine. The village is a small climb uphill.
If luck is on your side, Mt. K2, the Mountain of mountains, will offer a peek at itself!
