NUBRA VALLEY TREK - 14 DAYS | TREKKING 06 DAYS
DURATION : 13 Nights / 14 Days
DESTINATIONS : Delhi - Leh - Likir - Taru - Murbuk - Pulu - LaserMo la Basa - Hunder Dok - Sumur - Leh - Delhi
BEST SEASON : July – August- September
After a night in Delhi and a flight up to Leh, we’ll take three days to acclimatize to the high altitude (Leh is at over 3500m) with some local exploration of the monasteries and other sights in and around the Ladakhi capital. We begin our trek from the village of Umla.
On the ascent to Pulu we cross a small river where it is sometimes possible to see marmots. The Lasermo La (‘La’ means Pass in Tibetan) is reached the following day; at 5350m this is the highest point on the trek - admire the amazing views across the Karakoram Range as you recover from the climb. We’ll cross the edge of the mighty Lasermo glacier to reach the base camp. On the way to Hundar Dok we’ll pass shepherds huts (doks) and see yaks and sheep, and hopefully stop for a cup of butter tea (an acquired taste!).
Hunder village marks the beginning of the Nubra valley: with views of sand dunes in the distance this feels like central Asia. The lush green of the valley centre stands in stark contrast to the arid landscape all around. We’ll spend time exploring the local monasteries at Hunder, Diskit and Sumur, and take a ride on a double humped Bactrian camel across the spectacular dunes (optional).
We return to Leh passing through the remote villages and crossing the Khardung La (5,602 metres), the highest motor able pass in the world.

This is a two-week trip travels north to the Nubra Valley, also known as Ldumra (the valley of flowers), some approx 150 kilometers North of Leh - just about as far north as you can possibly go in India - on the ancient silk route connecting south and central Asia. This picturesque valley is incredibly remote, and only accessible by foot or by negotiating the highest motorable road in the world.
