Nubra Valley

It is approachable by road from the city of Leh which is the capital of Ladakh region. One has to climb the Khardung La pass also known as K-Top ,popularly but wrongly claimed to be the highest motorable pass in the world and descend into the valley further beyond. The road forks at a place called Khalsar, one of which goes towards towns Diskit, Hunder and further up to Turtuk on the Line of Control between India and Pakistan. The other road goes to towns like Sumur & Panamik and further upto Sosoma check point and Siachen base camp but tourists cannot go beyond Panamik.If visiting this area, it is advisable to spend atleast a night here, either at camps in Hunder or at homestays in Turtuk.Tour operators in Leh sell packaged tours for round-trip. For one night two days trip, covering Diskit, Hunder, Panamik and Sumoor, the quote may be between Rs.2200 to Rs.2500 per person with four person sharing.
