3. The 3 hour drive from Hunder to Turtuk is nothing less than exceptional. Throughout the journey, one has the company of Shyok, as well as the vistas, that define the barrenness which is characteristic to Ladakh. The unbelievable turquoise blue Shyok amid sky high snow clad peaks is a sight that one cannot miss.The landscape, culture, language, clothing, and even the physical features of people change quite drastically crossing over into Turtuk, technically entering Baltistan. Although the area around is sensitive, the feel of this place is altogether at a different level.
