A Visit in Turtuk - Ladakh

It's easy to run out of superlatives as you drive along the turbulent Shyok Valley towards Turtuk, which is only 12km from the Pakistan border. Parts of the road are very bad but it's worth it! Turtuk is a peaceful village and summer sees local women busy carting huge bundles of barley on their backs. Children in school uniforms pick apricots from one of the hundreds of trees. As we did too!
