Overview

Nubra Valley Trek

Passing through Khardung La at 18380 feet, which is the highest motorable road in the world, the Nubra Valley Trek breaks open the rich and undulated topography that was once a trade route between India, Tibet and Central Asia. It was an important stage for caravans following the Silk Road, which where swapping their mules for the famous camels of Bactriane. It is one of the moderate to challenging treks in Ladakh region that covers bits and bytes of ancient colours spraying out from the steep and barren walls, remote and secluded villages and gompas.

The major attractions on this trek in Ladakh region are the Shey Gompa, which is approximately 15 kilometers away from Leh, Thikshey Gompa, which is approximately 17 kilometers away from Leh and Hemis, which is 45 kms away from Leh and one of the popular monasteries in Ladakh region. It also reaches the popular Kanor Monastery. Further the journey delves the unwritten lore of a culture sequestered within the barren topography. One can explore the remote villages like the Khardung, Khalser, Agyam, Khalsar, Tirit, Lukung, Tegar , Sumur and Deskit.

Being one of the popular trekking trails in the Ladakh region the Nubra Valley Trek fetches in several trekkers from different parts of the world. Further the river Nubra is a major tributary of the Shyok river that flows parallel to the Indus on the northern side of the Ladakh range and thus brings forth the colourful hues alongside dotted with rich vegetation and orchids. The Nubra Valley is often dubbed as -Valley of Flowers and during the peak season the valley blossoms out with varied colours. Nonetheless the Nubra Valley trek climbs up to several mountain passes namely Digar La at 6000 meters and Khardung La. Thus the trek by and large exhibits and dilates the true colours of the Ladakh region.
