TRAVEL IN NUBRA VALLEY SHOW MAP

Nubra Valley (2800 m), nestled along the foothills of the Great Karakoram range is a great tourist destination of these days. Situated in theNorth of Leh the valley is drained by the rivers Nubra and Shayok. Nubra is a tri-armed valley located to the north east of Ladakh valley. Siachen Glacier lies to the north of the valley. The Sasser Pass and the famous Karakoram Pass lie to the northwest of the valley and connect Nubra with Uyghur (Mandarin : Xinjiang). Previously there was much trade passing through the area with western China's Xinjiang and Central Asia.

It is said 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 Karakoram Ranges. The Shyok river is a tributary of the Indus river. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. Like the rest of the Tibetan Plateau, Nubra is a high altitude cold desert with rare presence of vegetation excepting the river beds. The villages are irrigated and fertile, producing wheat, barley, peas, mustard and a variety of fruits and nuts, including blood apples, walnuts, apricots and even a few almond trees.

The usual route to access this valley is to travel through the Khardung La, (18,300 ft./5578 M), the highest motorable road in the world from Leh town.
