The Off-Beaten Path of the Nubra Valley - The Camping Station of Ladakh

8 mins. read

Blessed by nature with abundant apple and apricot orchards, snow-clad mountains, and a surreal landscape that calls out to thousands of travellers every year to the “Land of High Passes”, Nubra Valley holds the most stunning parts of Ladakh. Connected to Leh by Khardung La - one of the highest and most famous biking trails in the world - the valley is wedged cosily between Tibet and Kashmir, and surrounded by rugged mountain ranges, with local communities prospering on the Himalayan trade en route to the ancient Silk Road across the Ladakh region, Nubra has everything an explorer seeks.

As a high-altitude desert region, Nubra has captivated visitors with its tasteful blend of rugged beauty and soft calmness. Fondly called the Ldumra - the valley of flowers - Nubra comes alive in summer with cool winds blowing in from the lakes and mountains. It is the perfect destination to spend a summer weekend staring at the swaying vegetation and indulging in local activities. That, however, does not abstain it from stealing hearts in the cold of winter.

Home to some of the most breathtaking views, gompas, hot springs, marvellous sand dunes and cold deserts, lakes and river streams, remote villages, and adventure activities, it is not unnatural that Nubra is a famous travel destination for both local and international travellers. However, there is more to this yawning valley that attracts tourists.

Camping in Nubra Valley

Nubra Valley makes for one of the best places to experience some of the most memorable experiences you can have on your trip to Ladakh. Though the valley has been a hidden trove until some years ago, a trip to Ladakh now is incomplete without a glimpse into its orchards, a visit to some of the most famous Buddhist learning centres or monasteries dotting the area, or a dip in the sulphur hot springs in the Panamik village. Travellers often find themselves attempting to interact with the locals in Turtuk, or watching the native Bactrian camels dancing through the sand dunes in the cold desert of Hunder village. Some even indulge in a number of adventure activities including trekking, river rafting on the Shyok River, mountain biking, or indulging in some eco-friendly camp stays in Nubra. In fact, out of all things to do in Nubra Valley, camping stands out the most.

Camping in Nubra Valley is a sensory delight. Imagine laying down, under a sky full of stars with a bonfire and a warm cup of coffee keeping the night chill away. Enriching your mind, body, and soul by the mountainside of one of the most tranquil places in the world.
