Drive to Nubra via the Khardong-la.
The first part of the day, after an early breakfast, is to drive the 55 kilometers to North Pullu via South Pullu and the Khardong-la Pass (5370m) in about three and a half hours, depending on traffic and various stops for nature calling, photos, etc.
North Pullu (Pullu = open stone-built stable for animals, traditionally used by sheep and yak herders as shelter for their animals, especially in the summer months) is the second checkpoint on the way to Nubra near Spangchenmo (Wide Pastureland).
After North Pullu, there are several options to hike down the valley and our guide will choose a suitable route depending on the acclimatization of the group, enthusiasm and the weather of the day. We can descend from North Pullu (4657 m) to Khardong Farka Bridge (4131 m) or hike from Farka Bridge via Farka village, Kharig Bridge and Thakle (3900 m) to Khardong Rildan village (3980 m) before descending another 33 kilometers down the valley to Tirith in the Shayok Valley via the Shayok crossing point and the T-point junction at Shayok. Overnight stay in Tirith. BF,L,D
