Indus & Nubra Valley Trek: Area
Those two valleys have been a crossroad for commercial activities between India, Tibet and Central Asia. The Nubra Valley was an important stage for caravans following the Silk Road, which where swapping their mules for the famous Bactriane camels. The geopolitical evolution tended to transform the Nubra valley into a unique bubbly place opened to foreigners only since 1995. Lying approximately 400m lower than Leh, Nubra sports a much milder climate, which enables its inhabitants to cultivate more extensively, as compared to their counterparts in the main Indus valley.
The first days we will visit the most beautiful monasteries of the Indus Valley. Afterwards, we will take the highest motorable roads in the world, passing over the Khardong la pass at a height of 5400 m. The trek starts in Hundar and join the Indus valley via the Lasermo La (5200 m), through mineral landscapes, in an atmosphere of ancestral traditions.
