  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Nubra Valley

Known as Ldumra or the valley of flowers, Nubra Valley is located in the north of Leh. From Leh, there is a rough road that leads to the beautiful Khardung La. It is the highest motorable pass in the world. Beyond the pass, there is flat Nubra Valley, which is crisscrossed by the winding channels of the Nubra and Shyok rivers. The average elevation of the valley is about 10,000 ft. above the sea level. The highlight of a Nubra Valley Tour is the Bactarian Camel (Shaggy double hump Camel) around Deskit, sand dunes and Samstanling monasteries.

At first look, the valley seems dry and parched. This is the major farming land as per Ladakhi standards. Farmers here cultivate apricots, apples, barley and the orange berries of the tsestalulu. Book from a range of Nubra Valley Tour Packages and visit the land dotted with old gompas, ruined palaces and villages all around the valley.
