Sand, Water, Greenery.

Imagine a place - half vegetated and half dessert, in between runs a stream of water. By it side walk double humped camels. The view is astounding.

The ascent from Leh to Khardung La is short and steep and simply breathtaking. More when you are driving on the worlds highest motorable road. Landscape changes just as you descend down the other side of the pass. The Nubia river valley in all its Marco Polo glory. We stayed in Hunder. The ride of double humped camels and experience...

As per me, Sep is the best month to travel. Hotels are empty, and so are roads. Weather is just fine with winters approaching. Khardungla Pass and Hunder village ( bacterian camel ride) are main attractions on this road. Take a night halt at Hunder. Beautiful scenery on the way - sand dunes, monastery and apple trees at Hunder. You... More

During our Leh Visit in Sept-Oct 2015, we travelled to Nubra Valley for 2 days. Must visit attractions are Hunder Sand Dunes Camel Ride and Deskit Monastery. Other attractions can be avoided if short on time.

The Nubra valley is a must visit place in Ladakh. It is situated on the other side of the Khardungla pass. We had rented a bike and reached Nubra valley in the evening. We enjoyed the sand dunes at Hunder, Diskit monastery and the amazing views of Nubra valley the next day.

The route to Nubra valley has khardungla pass. Even though it was summer, it started snowing heavily and we had to wait almost... More

Its pithy how tripadvisor has shown Nubra Valley to be one single attraction! It is usually referred to as the entire area after descending down from Khardung La after Khardong Village. It is one of the last remaining magical places on earth. Some new sights have been thrown open in Ladakh for visitors on the Sumur side, now the road... More

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
