Nubra Valley, Jammu and Kashmir

4.5
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.

  • The long road and the col at 5600 m, are part of the charm of an expedition to the Nubra Valley... But if you are blocked on the road, or even obliged to turn around: don't be surprised and don't complain: because it's the games! In 2005, it was pretty fantastic on my first trip there. AND I kept an intense memory... If in 2017 (a little) the road has improved, the journey is still long enough. And if you don't have at least 15 days in Ladakh... then maybe time spent in cars, will be not dedicated to closer and more interesting things. See for yourself... Choose, is to give up! And once you arrive, some will be maybe a little disappointed... He must love the great landscapes, a little empty sometimes. Main purpose of the visit to the Nubra Valley: the great monastery of Diskit is always very nice. The view and atmosphere are awesome... Unfortunately a few amenities and restores him we noted a bit of its ancient charm. And the great built downstairs, giant Buddha strike in my view the landscape... Apart from this monastery: things to see around (and in the past), there are not (except for the beautiful scenery)... And may not justify spending more than 1 day integer (which means 2 whole days, more than 1 nights minimum on-site. Or so it is that I have not found... In any case, I'm not all amateur idiot ballads "walk" on a camel: a nice tourist to avoid! My opinion is mixed so... But everything depends on the weather which can dramatically change your experience in this valley.
