Nubra Valley Tourism

This masterpiece of God's own creation lies on the Silk route, in the paradisiacal of Jammu and Kashmir at a distance of around 140 Km from Leh. The valley is embellished with Shyok and Nubra river snaking through it and some beautiful monasteries colored with rich shades of golden, red and others.

Do you believe that places can leave you awestruck? This place is so magnificent that whatever your sight beholds gets you captivated as if every inch of the land has been gracefully etched by some mystical power. And when we talk about such places, we put Nubra valley somewhere at the top of the list because it's a gem that is beyond the reach of chaos and has been bestowed with stark tranquillity. In order to enter the Nubra valley, you need to hand over the photocopies of your travel permits to the soldiers in the Khardung la pass, as the region is currently under military supervision because the road further leads to the Siachen base camp which happens to be the highest battlefield in the world.

As you proceed with your somewhat bumpy journey, you will come across not just beautiful scenic views but also the highest desert of the world in Hunder, famous for the bactarian camel rides. Bactarian camels are of the rarest sort, having two humps and were the major source of transportation in the silk route. In Diksit, you can buy some lovely Kashmiri or Tibetan artefacts, Pashmina shawls, woollen socks, almonds, apricots, apples and other things that define Kashmir. Of course, you can take home the beauty Kashmir is known for, in your memories that you will be cherishing for life.
