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 team served two hardcore criminals with notices under the PSA in Banihal area and later detained them and sent them to Jammu-based Kotbalwal jail, they said.

The detained persons have been identified as Tariq Ahmad Dar, a resident of Hollan Banihal, and Tanvir Ahmad Choudhury alias Jimmi of Banihal, the officials said.
