A stunning region of Ladakh, this trail follows an old trade route from Phyang village over Lasermola, 5400m to Nubra Valley. This trip offers a 6 day trek and visits the famed monasteries of Ladakh. This is a perfect blend of a short trekking trip and the chance to visit the famed sites of Shey, Thikse and Hemis monasteries and surrounding communities.

Nubra is a tri-junction – located to the north east of Ladakh valley. The region comprises Nubra and Shyok valleys. Both their rivers originate from the remote and heavily glaciated peaks and valleys of the Karakoram Range.

Local scholars say that its original name was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). The Shyok River meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. The Shyok river is a tributary of the Indus river. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft./3048m.

In ancient times, this route was part of the caravan silk route. The famed Siachen Glacier lies to the north of the valley and the Sasser Pass and the famous Karakoram Pass lie to the northwest of the valley; and connect Nubra Xingjian region of China. This is an ancient trade route that traverses the area with western China’s Xinjiang and Central Asia.

Most of the caravan trade was based on wool and cloth, opium, spices, coral, turquoise, gold and with many trails and over passes mainly between Leh and Yarkand (in China).

This adventure offers days amongst cultivated fields, streams with deep gorges along with cultural experience of high altitude areas. We visit ancient monasteries in this two week trip with six days walking and a short rafting excursion.
