Today, fresh breeze from the Indus and the chirping of the mountain bird will wash away the fatigue of the long road trip. The Tripver captain will start your day with a breakfast walk down the streets of the old-town dotted with hidden bakeries, after you grab a bite our Local Leh drivers will be waiting to show you around their town.

We start the day early, and will be driving through the same tracks that formed a part of the Ancient Silk Route.

Your swiss tents will be waiting for your arrival, after a power nap you can head out to the Sand-Dunes for a Bactarian Camel ride, high altitude dune bashing or just relax. Let-s make the day even better with a warm bonfire, a round of happy reminiscent games followed by dinner.
After breakfast we head out towards stuff that dreams are made of ! the drive today is along the Shyok River (weather permitting) an extraordinarily beautiful terrain. The unreal blue colours of the pangong welcome us as much as our swiss campsite near the Lake, spend the evening just awestruck with the beauty or take a walk to the tiny cafes serving steaming momos. After an early dinner spend the evening with your travel buddies listening to music in the backdrop of a majestic -moonrise- or just counting stars (unlike anything else)
The Captain will take the early risers for an #Insta walk along the coast of Pangong Tso. Shortly after breakfast we will head back to leh town through Chang-La Pass where we can have a quick break to soup up on Maggi !
