Overview

Going through Khardung La, which is the world's most elevated motorable street, the Nubra Valley Trek tears open to delightful geology that was used to be a piece of an exchange course between India, Tibet and Central Asia. It was a significant stage for parades following the Silk Road utilized for swapping their donkeys for the well known twofold mound Bactrian camels. The stream Nubra following in the area is a significant tributary of the Shyok waterway that streams corresponding to the Indus on the northern side of the Ladakh go. A rich assortment of vegetation and orchids can be seen along the Nubra River which brings about adding shading to the valley. Today, Nubra Valley Trek is one of the moderate to testing treks in Ladakh locale that permit investigation of hued steep and infertile dividers, remote towns and Gompas.


A long way from the span of relaxation voyagers, there is a safe house roosted past Ladakh that attracts a few travellers from various corners of the world. The Nubra valley, which is probably the remotest spot in the Indian Himalayan belt, is a high elevation cold desert with sparse vegetation aside from along the stream beds. The valley is framed by the intersection of River Shyok and River Nubra and is available from Khardung La, which is one of the most noteworthy motorable streets on the planet that lies at a rise of 17,585 feet. Further, the undulated and differing scene, with green desert garden towns encompassed by energizing obvious scree inclines, stone tracks and cruel dry mountains, offers a decent arrangement of trekking openings. Trekking in Nubra Valley is each explorer's fantasy and the excursion along the edges of the Indus Valley down the Zanskar Valley and following unfathomably slender tracks and all the way open tremendous breadths is an ideal case of experience. In addition, alongside the adventure, the diorama of Indo - Tibetan settlements, spotted with supplication banners is a significant fascination while trekking in Nubra Valley. Winding to the upper finish of the Nubra Valley trek by means of Kongmaru La at 16,900 feet, you will run over the dynamite perspective on the rough snow-topped pinnacles and afterwards dive to the well known Hemis Monastery to close the trek. The Nubra Valley trek merits each penny you spend.


The Nubra valley trek starts from Sabu town, which is at a rise of 11,417 feet and is at a drivable good way from Leh. The trek from Sabu rises to Digar La at 18,000 feet and from there on, climbs to Digar town. From Digar town the trek experiences River Shyok and heads to Agyam town. From there on, the excursion prompts Khalsar town and thereupon the path downhill follows to Diskit by means of Sumur.
