Valleys in Ladakh

NUBRA VALLEY

Nubra valley: Sand dunes and camel rides at this altitude - you can yourself imagine what a thrilling adventure this is going to be. If you are travelling between July and September, make sure to include the Nubra valley in your itinerary. NUBRA VALLEY is about 150 km north of Leh, the capital town of Ladakh, India. Local scholars say that its original name  was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). The Shyok River meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh  and the Karakoram Ranges. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. above the sea level. The common way to access this valley is to travel over the Khardung La from Leh. Like the rest of Ladakh, Nubra is a High Altitude Desert with rare precipitation and scant vegetation except along river beds, where irrigated, and on high slopes. The villages are irrigated and fertile, producing wheat, barley, peas, mustard for oil, and a variety of fruits and nuts, including apple, walnut, apricot and even a few almond trees. Most of the Nubra Valley is inhabited by Ladakhis who speak Ladakhi; the majority of them are Buddhist, with a minority of Shia and Sunni Muslims. In the western or lowest altitude end of Nubra Valley, along the Shyok River, the inhabitants are Balti, speak Balti, and are Shia and Sufia Nurbakhshia Muslims.

 

Zanskar Valley

Zanskar Valley: The best time to go is between June to September since this is the time there is no snow on the roads. The roads are closed most of the rest of the year. You’ll be awed by what your eyes will see here and if you can take some time out from soaking in the beauty around you, there is white river rafting that you can indulge in.
