PLACES TO VISIT/ AROUND THE STAY
Turtuk is located at a distance of 220 kms from Leh and as with everywhere in Ladakh, the easiest way to reach it is if you’re riding a bike. The journey will take you through the towns of Khardung and Diskit (shared taxis ply till here). Beyond Diskit, you have to take public buses which are infrequent and time-consuming. The road from Diskit to Turtuk goes past the mesmerising sand dunes of Hunder and then it goes alongside the River Shyok (“The River of Death”) which has the clearest turquoise blue waters you’ll ever see.
