Ladakh, Nubra Valley & Pangong Lake
If there is a breathtaking journey for the beauty of its landscapes, this is it!. High mountain villages, cold desert, white sand dunes, turquoise lakes surrounded by steep mountain ranges … A real paradise for lovers of wild landscapes and a delight for the eye of the photographer.
We will start this 7-day trip in Leh, the capital of Ladakh and then enter the Nubra Valley through a splendid long winding road. We will spend a night in Sumur, a cold desert with white sand dunes surrounded by soaring mountains.
The next day we will head to the enchanted Pangong Lake. Along the way, we will stop at Hunder, which is also reputed for its white sand dunes and then at Diskit in order to visit its 14th century monastery. After admiring the turquoise lake of Pangong, we will drive to the monastery of Hemis where we will settle and spend one peaceful night.
On the way back, we will stop off at the monastery of Chemrey, which crowns the hill of the same name. We’ll return to Leh via the Thiksey monastery known for its imposing Maitreya statue of 15 meters high.
