Today we start our journey to the last Indian village on India – Pakistan border – Turtuk. Turtuk was captured by Indian army in the 1971 war (together with 5 other Balti villages) was then included within the Indian LOC from Pakistan. This village has a similar culture and language to Ladakhi.And is about as close as you can get to Pakistan in India, physically and literally. This delightful village is crunched into the narrowing Shyok River valley in the furthest corner of India, right at the tippy-top of the map. Its recently open for tourism to boost tourist as Turtuk was in every sense a treat – culturally intact, untainted by tourism and simply delightfu .The religion of Turtuk is mostly Nurbakshi Muslim; some villages are Shia. Arrive trutuk by afternoon. Evening free to roam around. Overnight at hotel
