Ladakh is to be experienced, it cannot be defined or described in words!!
Ladakh - the ‘Land of the High Passes’ - is one of the most stunning parts of the Indian Himalayas. Wedged between , and Xinjiang Province (of China) and ’s Himachal Pradesh, it forms the eastern part of the state of Jammu & Kashmir.
North of , Ladakh’s ‘capital’, lies a far-flung and austerely beautiful enclave cradled by rugged mountains ‒ this is the Nubra Valley.
The region actually
comprises two valleys: Nubra and Shyok. Both their rivers rise amidst the
remote and heavily glaciated peaks and troughs of the Karakoram Range. The
Nubra joins the Shyok in ‒ as far as tourism is concerned ‒ the region’s heart near Diskit before flowing
westwards into Pakistan to eventually join the mighty Indus.
