You cannot be more excited about the most adventurous day of travel. We leave the lush green valley for the brackish water of the endorheic lake. You will take the road along the river called Shyok which translates to the river of death in the local language. There is a fair chance of facing water crossing, sand storms, and mud rubbles on the Shyok - Agham route. Take a walk by the shore and devour the beauty of the blue lake. Overnight at deluxe tents near the holy Pangong.
As soon as you leave the Leh road, the offroading starts. At first, you will tackle small broken road patches and encounter long stretches of fine white sand. You will travel on an unpaved road with loose stones, rubbles and dust. The road becomes trickier once we cross Agham village. An uncertain amount of water in the streams of Himalayan glacial water makes the day adventurous.

It will not be an exaggeration to call this day an exam day for physical fitness and mental wellness.

On the last stretch of the ride, enjoy the beautiful stretch of the road along the Mormot land which takes you to Pangong. Take a walk by the shore and devour the beauty of the holy Pangong. Enjoy the night by the brackish waters of the endorheic lake.

Due to the freezing temperatures of the gushing winds, it is advisable to reach the semi-deluxe tents before sunset.
