Nubra Valley, Jammu and Kashmir
(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
The colorful scenery of Nubra Valley features sand dunes, hot springs, and green oases of apricot trees, all accessible by one of the highest navigable roads in the world. At an average of 3,048 m (10,000 ft) above sea level, the valley is a perfect place to stop and acclimatize before climbing farther to higher altitudes. While there, you can visit the largest and oldest Buddhist monastery in the valley and see a 32 m (106 ft) tall statue of Maitrey Buddha. You can also ride a camel over sand dunes, get a glimpse of local Balti culture at one of the valley's villages, or explore the Yarab Tso Lake, considered holly by the natives.

  • 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....  more »

  • One of the most beautiful place in Ladakh region. Nature here does not follow any rules. River flows through sand dunes surrounded by snow clad mountains. The safari by bactrian (double hump) camel is a lifetime experience and wildlife here is also different. the fruit, flower everything is different here. A lifetime experience. Amust visit if you visit Leh. The history runs that hunters from Kazaksthan and China, called Mons settled here, who brought with them bactrian camels, which is not available in India.
  • The journey from leh to nubra valley is quite tiring. But this place is worth visiting for one gets a spectacular view of the rugged mountains and the small streams which meander their way through the valley. One can engage himself in different activities like camel riding etc. You can get a good view of the milky way provided the sky is clear. The mercury dips lower in leh and other places in Ladakh than in nubra valley.
  • Beautiful place but this way is a so poor road concavity is so bad
  • If you wish to see cold mountain desserts, this is the place to be. You can ride ATVs as well as camels which is interesting. :) The sand dunes with the backdrop of colorful mountains look amazing. A place more suited for travel rather than vacation. There are camps near the shyok river. You can also go for river rafting in the Shyok river.
  • Excellent place, with beautiful white sand dunes and a hot sun. Bactrian camel rides are recommended
