Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

A police spokesman in a statement said that officers at a checkpoint established at Chahr-e-Sharif arrested a drug peddler identified as Mohammad Ayoub Mir son of Abdul Gani Mir resident of Trachbal Chrar-e-Sharif.

“He has been shifted to Police Station Chrar-e-Sharif where he remains in custody. Contraband substance Charas weighing 700gms have been seized from his possession by the officers,” said the spokesman.

“Case FIR No. 53/2019 under relevant sections of law has been registered and initiated investigation in the matter,” he said.

“Community members are requested to come forward with any information regarding drug peddlers in their neighborhood. Persons found indulging in drug peddling will be dealt as per law,” he added.

“Our consistent actions against drug peddlers should reassure the community members that we are making efforts to keep our society free from the scourge of drug menace,” said police spokesman in a statement.
