silk route tour to nubra valley

until 1949, the nubra valley was a busy trading route that connected leh via khardong-la and karakoram with trades people from yarkand, tashkent, kashgar, tibet, kashmir and punjab.

the valley is open to tourists since 1974. it is the northern-most point that can be visited in india. getting there is an adventure by itself: a spectacular drive over the world's highest motorable pass, the khardong-la (5’260 m), to the mystic high-altitude nubra valley, populated by buddhists and muslims.

your driving patience will be rewarded: the eastern highlands of ladakh, also known as the rupshu plateau, are bordering to china-occupied tibet. the area is dominated by nomads. the world's famous and finest wool, the pashmina (locally known as lena), is won from their goats.

only few nomads still collect the rock salt near the lakes – a very hard work which has nearly disappeared. you can visit also the salted lakes of pangong tso, tso moriri and tso kar.
