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.


Official sources said that following specific information about the presence of militants, a joint CASO was launched by the Special Operations Group (SOG) of J&K Police, Army and CRPF at Aharbal in Kulgam on Monday.


However, they said when security forces were moving towards the target area militants hiding there fired at them with automatic weapons. “The security forces retaliated ensuing in an encounter,” they said, adding one unidentified militant was killed in the initial exchange of fire.


They said the operation was still going on when the reports last came in. “Security forces have been rushed to the area to foil any attempts by militants to escape,” they said.


They said additional security forces have also been deployed in adjoining areas to maintain law and order.
