Lord Buddha Statue in Diskit monastery, Nubra Valley

Orchard of Ladakh

The world’s highest motorable road along the magnificent Khardungla Pass leads to the enchanting hamlets of the Nubra valley. These pepper the cold, silver desert that spirals out every way the eye can see. The Nubra river merges with the Shyok river to separate Laddakh from the Karakoram range. If you fancy it, take a ride on a double-humped camel, lazing around in this still, barren land – a welcome reminder of the uniqueness of Laddakh. 

This is the place where you can find forests of sea-buckthorn, a medicinal plant rich in bio-molecules, vitamins and nutritive properties and popularly known as ‘Leh Berry’.
