On this demanding tour, upon leaving the Nubra valley you move westwards and cross the 5,400 m high Lasermo La (pass). The tour takes you past impressive gorges, desert ridges, barley growing areas and meadows with colourful flowers that accompany you on the way to the picturesque monastery in the village of Phyang. Nubra valley is rich in Tibetan culture with well-preserved monasteries such as Diskit and Samstaling as well as regional architecture.
This is a relative new trail in the seldom visited Ladakh region. Nubra, also called the Valley of Flowers in the local language, is like an oasis in the desert and was part of the trade route between Tibet and Turkestan. Nubra is located 150kms north-east of the city of Leh and is where the rivers Shyok and Siachen meet. Another highlight of the area is the two-humped Bactrian camel and the sand dunes that have a Central Asian Gobi desert feel.
This trek requires good mountain hiking experience, no altitude problems, and good health.
