Visit to Zuluk - Aritar tour is incomplete without a visit to the famous Zuluk route. Aritar is the ideal base for your tour of the famous Silk route. We take you to Zuluk, Gnathang Valley and Baba Mandir on a day trip from here. Compared to local accommodation available in Zuluk area, Aritar is a much better proposition with no shortage of water, better service, rooms and more regular electricity. All this basics are often found missing in the higher altitude accommodations closer to Zuluk. As a result guests prefer to base their Silk route tour from Aritar.
