About Nubra Valley
Nubra Valley: From Leh, highway runs north over the awesome Khardung La,(18000ft) the hightest motorable pass in the world. Beyond the pass is the wide, flat Nubra Valley, crossed by the winding channels of the Shyok & Nubra Rivers. The original name Nubra was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). There are Shaggy Bactrian (double - humped) camels in the sand dunes of the Nubra Valley. Dotted around the valley are ancient Monastery and awesome villages which makes this magnificent trip.

The major attractions apart from the mountain scenery and Shyok river basin to this region are cold desert and Bactrian camels of Hunder and hot water springs of Panamik. Yes, there is a desert with sand dunes around Diskit and Hunder which host Bactrian camels who have two humps reminding us of old times when this region was a part of Silk Route to Central Asia. Panamik hot springs are not that great with not very great amount of water oozing from mountain crevice at around 60-70 degree.
