Nubra 'the valley of flowers' is located in the north of Leh around 120 kms across Khardung La (18,380ft), the world's highest motorable road. Nubra used to be an important trade center on the famous silk route leading from Leh to Kashgar through the two passes of Saser and Karakoram. The main attractions of this region are the Bactrian camels (double humped camels), Khardung-La Pass (world's highest motorable road at 18,380 feet), the Diskit and Samstaling monasteries and the hot springs at Panamik. Diskit, Hundar, Panamik and Tiger are the main towns and villages of Nubra. Diskit is home to a busy and dramatically positioned Gompa. It is also the administrative center of Nubra.

Tsomoriri The Tsomoriri Lake is a beautiful mountain bounded expanse of water, around 240 Kms. from Leh. The lake is located at 14,000 ft. near the small village of Korzok. Korzok is sparsely populated and is the only permanent settlement in Rupshu, which is otherwise inhabited only by nomadic Chang-pa herdsmen. Though it is much smaller than the Pangong lake, it is equally spectacular and is the breeding ground for many migratory birds including the endangered, black necked crane, the bar-headed goose, the great crested grebe, the Brahmini duck and the bar-headed gull. Kyang, the wild ass of the Ladakh and Tibetan plateau, marmots, hares, and an unusual tail-less rat are also found here. ... read more
