NUBRA & BEYOND
It’s not just the luxurious camps but a whole new world to explore.
Amidst the cold and barren Nubra valley stands the very beautiful and milky white Diskit monastery which is the oldest and largest monastery in Nubra, located at an altitude of 3142m. The highlight of visiting this monastery is the impressive 106ft long statue of the Jampa (Maitreya) Buddha facing the Shyok River on top of a hill which is a must visit.
These aren’t just the camels you see usually but the double humped ones which will surely allure your eyes amid the sand dunes. The double humped camels were left in the wild after the silk route closure and some were then domesticated. Book yourself a camel safari that starts from Nubra till Turtuk Valley.
Beautiful beyond your imagination is what describes the stunning silver sand dunes of the Hunder in the Nubra Valley. Cut by a gentle stream and the stunning landscapes with snow-clad mountains in the backdrop is something straight out of the fairy world that anyone would love to just put.
A five hour drive from Nubra will take you more close to Pakistan and views to fall for. Here in the Indian’s far northwestern region lies a tiny faming village surrounded with mountains and lush green ambience, the Turtuk Village. Enjoy Balti hospitality, visit the oldest mosque or just camp around landscapes.
Ride in style with ATV at world’s highest sand dunes in Nubra Valley, 10500ft. The cost varies from 500-1000 INR and can be either self-driven or let the team take control while you enjoy your pillion ride.
Remote 600-year-old Ensa Monastery, 35km north of Sumur on the west bank of the Nubra, feels like it's close to the end of the world. The monastery itself is small and home to only one monk, but a lovely kora path takes you past dozens of white chortens and a hermitage retreat to offer fabulous valley views.
