Nubra Valley is a well-known destination. Even though is is very beautiful, I found other places like Pangon, Tso Moriri, TutTuk, Hanle to be better than Nubra. The unique thing is that you get to see water, sand, snow and mountains co-exist. And also the...More

This hotel is the most newest in town. I like the decoration that wood fit perfectly with stone. On the second floor I can hang and chill out at the balcony to see the mountain’s view. Wonderful staying here !!!

One of the best places to visit in Ladakh, Nubra Valley (Hunder) is low altitude place even than Leh. Their White Sand Dunes gives you the amazing experience with double-humped camel safar. Diskit Monestry is must visit place which comes on the way to Hunder.

Nubhra is the only valley in Ladakh where one can see greenary. As you drive down into the valley after crossing Khardungla Pass, the whole landscape changes. Drive from North Pullu to Hundar via Diskit is great.
