Nubra Valley Trek

Set in the majestic splendor of the Himalayas, Ladakh is an enchanted land. The undiscovered paradise of rugged mountains, high mountain passes, and lush valleys is blessed with thriving culture, adventure, and life-changing experiences, besides the last of undisturbed Tantric Buddhist populations on earth. Nubra Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Ladakh. The Shyok River, a tributary of the Indus River meets the Nubra or Siachen River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. Like the rest of the Tibetan Plateau, Nubra is a high-altitude cold desert with ancient Tibetan Monasteries and welcoming villages. The 15-day Nubra Valley Trek is a journey of a lifetime. Experience the beauty and bliss of Ladakh like never before!

  • Places Covered: Leh(2) > Nubra Valley(10) > Leh(2)
  • Day 1: Arrive Delhi and Delhi - Leh by flight

    Arrive in Delhi early in the morning. Meet, greet and assist on arrival and transfer to the domestic terminal to connect the flight G8 - a departure in Delhi 05:45 hours and arrival at Leh in 07:10 hours. Leh, the capital of the kingdom of Ladakh is a dream destination of many, especially adventure enthusiasts. The high-altitude cold desert is home to the remains of the ancient kingdom as well as the last remaining populations of Tibetan Buddhists. Arrival in Leh and assistance and transfer to the hotel. Rest of the day at leisure to acclimatize. The high altitude of 3500 meters and the low-oxygen air requires the body some adjustment to the conditions. In the late afternoon, choose a walk through the Leh Market. The market stands in the shadows of Leh Palace that dominates the skyline. The stores are distinctly window-dressed and each is a head-turner letting visitors pause and ponder at each step. In fact, everywhere you cast a glance, a bargain sits pretty. Sidewalks too are filled with stalls of semi-precious stones, an assortment of jewelry and plethora of reproduced and some genuine antiques, all translating in to perfect souvenirs for the burgeoning numbers that visit Leh during the tourist season. The sidewalks are lined with women in traditional Ladakhi dress selling fresh vegetables which is a luxury as the producing months are short and nothing is available in harsh winters. Meals – Breakfast, lunch & dinner. Overnight hotel.

  • Day 2: Leh - Thikse - Shey - Leh

    Take an early morning excursion to visit Thikse Gompa at sunrise. The Tibetan Buddhist monastery of Thiksey is of the Yellow Hat (Gelugpa) sect. Located on top of a hill at an altitude of 3,600 metres (11,800 ft) in the Indus valley, it is approximately 19 kilometres east of Leh. Resembling the Potala Palace in Lhasa of Tibet, it is the largest gompa in central Ladakh. The 12-storey complex and houses many items of Buddhist art such as stupas, statues, thangkas, wall paintings, and swords. The highlight is the Maitreya (future Buddha) Temple established by the 14th Dalai Lama in the 1970s. The 15 metres (49 ft) high statue is the largest in Ladakh. The monks assemble before sunrise in the main prayer hall to participate in the early morning rituals. The prayer rituals are conducted by the head monks with Lamas following with musical instruments including drums and gongs. Breakfast will be provided in a local nearby restaurant. After breakfast, take a two-hour walk to Shey village and Gompa. Shey was the ancient capital of Ladakh and even after Sengey Namgyal built the more imposing palace at Leh, the kings continued to regard Shey, as their real home. The importance which was attached to Shey - the seat of Ladakh's heartland - is attested by the enormous number of Chorten about the village, particularly around the palace complex and barren plain to the north of the road. Return to the hotel for lunch. In the afternoon take a walk up to Leh Palace. Leh Palace overlooks the Ladakhi Himalayan town of Leh, modeled on the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet. The palace was built by King Sengge Namgyal in the 17th century but was later abandoned when Dogra forces took control of Ladakh in the mid-19th century. The royal family moved to Stok Palace. Later, continue to Shanti Stupa, a Buddhist white-domed stupa (chorten) on a hilltop in Chanspa, Leh district, Ladakh. It was built in 1991 by Japanese Buddhist Bhikshu Gyomyo Nakamura. The Shanti Stupa holds the relics of the Buddha at its base, enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama himself.
