Tranquil Reflections of Nature in Nubra Valley  

When I came near the valley, an intense feeling captured my heart which saying, “Let’s breathe the serenity and solace of this rugged yet captivating valley.” Siachen Glacier, which stands still at the Northern border of India, gives way down to the Nubra Valley. Nubra Valley has a bunch of sublime surprises for every traveller. Don’t trust your eyes blindly as you may see green meadows in some parts but other parts may stand as dry and dehydrated cold deserts which shows you a barren brown hue of the valley. Rocky in some portions and some regions give ample stances of blooming of vivid flowers.

Ever agile Sand dunes, double-humped Bactrian Camels, challenging trails, irregular blossoms across the valley and mountains with the patchy charm of green and ungreen tints, creamy-white snow sheet encapsulating the region in some places, enough is not enough to picture the beauty of Nubra Valley.  

The enigmatic terrains of Nubra Valley also witness the tributary of Indus and Shyok river and thus gives birth to a very alluring culture that nurtures and thrives in the Valley.
