Nubra Valley

Nubra Valley - LadakhRelatively warmer region in Ladakh, fruits and better crops grow in Nubra making it 'Ldumra' or 'the orchard' of Ladakh. Beautiful to the core, early summer is a season of wild pink and yellow roses in the Nubra Valley while lavender is the color of the Nubra environs in August. Diskit, the largest village here is known for its apricots along with the Diskit Gompa, which is more than 350 years old, perhaps the oldest and largest monastery of the valley. The beautiful sand dunes of Hunder village ave an ethereal beauty that is further enhanced with the excitement of a possibility of spotting the double-humped camels that are found here. The Gompa of the village is the best site for watching the gorgeous sunset and is noteworthy for its old frescoes and Buddha's statue.

Since the Nubra valley is an Indian land sandwiched between China and Pakistan, few people had ventured to go there until the Indian government tempted the adventurers to have a glimpse of the rich green lands between Karakorams and Himalayas in the villages of the valley by constructing a road to Leh. This part of Ladakh is very close to the strategic point of Siachen glacier with a view of the national interest. It is the world's largest and most closely guarded glacier but it is prohibited to visit it. The trekking to Nubra Valley from Leh is full of beautiful sights full of 4,600 - 4,800 m high rocks, alpine flora such as mosses and wild mint, barren mountains covered with ice and passing through Khardong La, the highest mountain pass in the world.
