Nubra Valley Trekking

Nubra Valley

Nubra, the name of the valley and the town as well, is a tri-armed valley located to the north east of Ladakh nestling between the tall Saltoro and Karakoram ranges. Locally and originally, the valley is named as Ldumra that means the valley of flowers. The flat and eloquent Nubra Valley is being criss-crossed 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. 

Further, the upper end of the Nubra Valley trek are 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.
