We had a great time, we went all the way to the oasis of Turtuk, great place to stay the night, although we might have to burst a bubble here, we hoped to see the 2nd highest mountain in the world K2. However although you are very close you can't actually see K2 from the town or even the border... More

Leh Ladakh has so much scenic beauty that you just can't take in one life. It's like a kid locked up in a toy factory, you see beautiful places one after the another and you just can't miss anything. Nubra valley is situated at around 10,000ft. above the sea level and is hot compared to Leh. We literally had to... More

Nubra valley is one of the finest valley, I've ever been to. Green calley, sand and water streams all at the same place. The double humped camels add to the beauty. Roads are bumpy but the result is the best.

This is one of the Attractions of Ladakh. It is very different from the other parts of Ladakh as it has some vegetation and some cultivation here. The Main Attraction is the Sand (Cold Desert) where one can ride the double humped camels. The area is beautiful and one can sit and relax near the stream, take a short (15min)... More

San dunes, double hump camels. Seems all 3 at one location, desert, oasis and greenery. It's an amazing experience. The travel from Leh to Nubra too is a contrast. From Leh you climb higher and higher to pass the Khardung-la pass and later you drive thru white sands, dunes and amazing pictorial scenic beauty. We did camel rides and spent... More

Nubra valley may not be the most documented or popular destinations of India. However, it's probably the most diverse piece of land on earth one can experience. This is supposedly a cold desert, punctuated by Apple and apricot orchards. From rugged mountainous terrain to white sands to lush green barley fields. The natural beauty of this valley is utterly stunning... More

Awsum place if one loves nature. You can see mountains, falls, desert, greenry all at one place. Place is quiet silent in evening time. But a must visit place and you can also enjoy double hump camel ride over there. Beautiful.

I was there on the Geological Expenditure. When I entered in the valley i was just awestruck. There was every single environmental condition present and the Saltora Hill in between Himalayan mountain range and Karakoram Mountain was just awesome. the width of the Shyok River was so big. We stay there in Desert Himalaya, the tent was good and comfortable.
