Day 7: Leh To Nubra Valley Via Khardung La
Today is the day we all came on this ride - to be on Top of the World - the Khardung La (5602M). The initial smooth going track becomes tougher as we ascend, full of boulders and stones - but it is certainly worth the ride.

Nubra Valley is popularly known as Ldumra or the valley of flowers. It is situated in the north of Ladakh between the Karakoram and Ladakh ranges of the Himalayas. The average altitude of the valley is 10,000 Ft. above sea level. Upon arrival in Nubra we check in at our Camp / Hotel in Hunder for Overnight stay.
