Details

Nubra, the name of the valley and the town as well, is a tri-armed valley located to the northeast of Ladakh nestling between the tall Saltoro and Karakoram ranges. Locally and originally, the valley is named Ldumra that means the valley of flowers. The flat and eloquent Nubra Valley is being crisscrossed along the Khardung La Pass granting the winding channels of the Shyok and Nubra Rivers.

For the Nubra Valley Trek which is definitely one of the most varied and beautiful treks in the whole world, crossing the major two passes along the Himalayas at an altitude of 15,000 ft (4575 m) is actually encircling along the edges of the Indus Valley down the Zanskar Valley. Trekking along the Nubra Valley is actually passing through the Zanskar terrain, the terrain which changes from incredibly narrow valleys to wide-open vast expanses. Along the trails of the trek, one can find the decorated “chortens” (shrines) and “mani” (prayer) walls that further exemplify the region’s total immersion in Buddhist culture.

Once served as a transit area for traders on the silk route, Nubra Valley, is now a must-visit place for any trekker. With its sand dunes to double-humped camels and from extravagant river valleys to its lush green barley fields, it is truly a delight to every eye. Driving across the Khardungla, the highest motorable pass our route takes us to the heart of the Nubra valley, Hundar, near to the Diskit monastery from where we start our trek. Walking through breathtaking gorges and large meadows of the Nubra valley, our trek passes through Lasermo La (5400m), an eternal snowbound pass connecting Nubra and Indus Valleys.

Further, the upper end of the Nubra Valley trek is so rewarding with spectacular views of the jagged snow-capped peaks before crossing the 5150m Kongmaru La (Pass) and descending to the famous Hemis Monastery to bring to the end of the trek which can also be followed by exploring the famous towns of Leh and rafting along the Indus River for more fun.
