Nubra Valley, Leh District

#2 of 26 in Parks in Ladakh
Must see · Valley · Nature / Park
The colorful scenery of Nubra Valley features sand dunes, hot springs, and green oases of apricot trees, all accessible by one of the highest navigable roads in the world. At an average of 3,048 m (10,000 ft) above sea level, the valley is a perfect place to stop and acclimatize before climbing farther to higher altitudes. While there, you can visit the largest and oldest Buddhist monastery in the valley and see a 32 m (106 ft) tall statue of Maitrey Buddha. You can also ride a camel over sand dunes, get a glimpse of local Balti culture at one of the valley's villages, or explore the Yarab Tso Lake, considered holly by the natives.
