Situated about 150 km to the north of Leh, the Nubra Valley is an isolated region that is a major highlight of the tourism circuit of Ladakh. This valley is located at the confluence of the Shyok and Siachen rivers, where Ladakh is separated from the Karakoram mountain range. To the north of this picturesque valley lies Siachen, which is a beautiful glacier that falls under the disputed territory of Kashmir. The north-western region of this valley is bordered by Sasser and Karakoram passes, the latter formed an integral part of the ancient trade route between India and China. These passes connect the Nubra Valley to Xinjiang – a mountainous Chinese province. The last accessible hamlet of this valley is Panamik, which has an old monastery and several hot springs of sulphur-rich water. The valley with unique topography is a beautiful destination worth exploring during a visit to Leh.
