The famous Nubra valley in Ladakh – an awe inspiring, wind-swept, cold desert high up at almost 10,000 feet above sea level. The only place in India where the double humped, Bactrian camels are found, the terrain is jaw dropping in its immensity.
The road to Nubra valley originates from Leh and first climbs up to one of the highest motorable passes in the world -the Khardunla – at 18380 feet, before dropping down into the valley. It is a bleak landscape, that can make anyone a believer of the magical Himlayas as true Gods on earth.
This image does NOT belong to me and I thank the author for enlightening us on such beauty. I should be there (hopefully) in a month’s time and shall have my own travelogue and pictures about this bleak wonderland.
