Welcome to Turtuk

Turtuk is the northernmost village of India situated in the Leh district of Jammu and Kashmir  located in the Nubra tehsil, 205 km from the district headquarter Leh, on the banks of the Shyok River and an oasis of K2 range. It is the only Balti region under the Indian administration and was under Pakistan's control until 1971, after which India gained control over this strategic area.

Geographically, Turtuk lies in the Baltistan Region and is one among four such villages in India, the other three being Tyakshi, Chalunkha and Thang. The residents of Turtuk and its adjoining villages speak Balti language as ethnicity. 

Turtuk is the last outpost of India at Thang after which Pakistan-controlled Gilgit- Baltistan begins.  Turtuk is very famous for the availability of different varieties of fruits especially apricots and its artefacts. Turtuk was opened to tourists in 2010. Turtukis one of the few places in India where one can witness Balti culture and heritage.
