First off, let me be honest. I love mountains. I love deserts. I just don't understand why it's a big deal to see them together. The drive to Nubra valley, though beautiful, is back breaking. The roads are bad and by the time you reach the place you're thinking, this had better be bloody worth it. It;s a pretty place,... More

One of the many important destinations past Khardun La is Nubra valley. The ride to it awesome. You pass many majestic mountains, rivers, streams, military installation, villages, some bridges and valleys. There are some hotels and home stays where you can stay overnight. Be prepared to be charged hefty rates. The pictures attached speak volumes about the rivers, mountains and... More

The Blue water flows only in the winter and later until feb. i have been in mid july unfortunately after rains. Whenever it rains the water and river flows gets muddy and not a good scenery to watch. I heard during monsoon and winter its frozen sometimes and looks all blue and scenic. Nothing but sand dunes are there. but... More

Turtuk village was not in our list to visit. We were in Nubra valley and visited Diskit, Hunder, hot spring water and going back... but some foreigner suggested us for Turtuk, I can say that they have forced us to visit Turtuk. If you have not seen Turtuk scenery then you have nothing seen in ladakh. i don't have words... More

It's unique in the sense you get to see desert and double humped camels and snow cladded mountains together. Must go place on your trip to Ladakh.

The sand dunes are somewhat unique inasmuch as this is the only place you'll actually see sand dunes in the cold desert as opposed to barren and rough terrain. The Shayok river valley too is pretty attractive to see. However its a pretty long and rough ride from Leh so Nubra valley wouldn't be a must see in Ladakh unless... More

Nubra Valley is so beautiful and pleasing to eyes and heart. I would like to stay there forever. Sand dunes are very beautiful. You can also take camel safari.

Come nubra and you would witness the kingdom of double hump camels & high altitude cold desert. It is more commercialized in comparison to sumur. The camel ride is must as a souvenir. There's small restaurant at the car parking are also to have some refill.

The contrast of rocks, river, greenery and dessert somehow blend together to mesmerise. In the lap of the valley, there is Diskit monastery where the soul of the mountains reside. It is breath takingly beautiful to look around from here. There are sand dunes where you could go for a ride on a two-humped Bactrian camel or get dressed up... More
