Nurla Valley is a high altitude cold desert with limited vegetation (meadows), located to the north east of Ladakh valley. You will be driven to Nubra Valley from Leh via the incredibly scenic route that includes a photo opportunity at the Khardong La Pass. At 18,380 feet (5602 meters), this lays claim to being the highest motorable road in the world. Visit to the Double Hump Camel Breeding Center, a fascinating campus that ensures the survival of this rare, exotic animal. You will explore Diskit village and its market on foot with your guide. It is the largest village in Nubra Valley, and is also the headquarters of the present administrative setup of the region. In stark contrast to many of the most popular destinations in India, you will not see the extremes of poverty in Ladakh. Life here is not easy, but there is a prevailing air of tranquility and contentment that is apparent in the faces of the villagers, young and old, monastic or secular, as they go about their everyday tasks and assignments. It is also very contagious! You will visit to the Diskit Monastery, which is situated on a hilltop and offers a grand view of the Nubra Valley towards the North. You will also enjoy a photo opportunity at the massive golden Buddha statue located on a bluff near the monastery.
