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.

According to the Army, a number of abandoned boats had been discovered in the Sir Creek area, raising suspicion about the possibility of armed militants having been used them to enter Indian territory.

Lieutenant General Satinder Kumar Saini, GoC-in-C of the Army”s Southern Command, told media on the sidelines of an event in Pune on Monday that adequate measures are being taken in Sir Creek to avert security threats.

“We have got many inputs that there might be a terrorist attack in the southern part of India and peninsular India. Some boats have been recovered in the area of Sir Creek. We have undertaken capacity building and capability development in the area of Sir Creek keeping in mind the enhanced threat perception. We are taking precautions to ensure that any of the designs of the inimical elements or terrorists are stalled,” said Saini.

The Navy, too, had issued a security alert along the western coast in August following intelligence inputs about the possibility of militants entering the country using the Sir Creek route. Chief of Naval Staff Admiral Karambir Singh had said in Pune, citing intelligence sources, that Pakistan-based terrorist organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed is training militants to carry out underwater attacks on India.

“We have received intelligence that the underwater wing of Jaish-e-Mohammad is being trained for attacks. We are keeping track of it and can give an assurance that we are fully alert to foil any such design,” Admiral Singh had said.

Following the Indian Navy”s security alert, Adani Ports had issued an advisory upon its shipping agents and stakeholders to inform their vessels and also to report any suspicious activity in the sea to marine control station and port operation centre immediately.
