CHAMBA CAMP DISKIT

01 May – 30 September (Every Year)

About

The Nubra Valley is one of the most dramatic and surreal landscapes in the world. Cold desert sand dunes give way to lush orchards on the banks of the Shyok and Nubra rivers. Charming villages and farms are interspersed with herds of grazing goats, sheep or yaks, set against the backdrop of the mountains.

Discover the charms of life in the Nubra Valley with our specialised excursions at Chamba Camp, Diskit. Situated at the confluence where the Shyok and Nubra rivers meet, the Nubra Valley separates Ladakh from the Karakoram mountain range. The valley is accessed either through the Khardung La Pass – the highest motor-able road in the world, or through the Wari La pass – one of the most picturesque parts of the Trans-Himalayan region.

The valley is populated with a series of villages that lie along the banks of the Nubra river. Sumur, KyagarTirith, Panamik and several other hamlets are full of tradition and earthy character, lush with apple and apricot orchards, where Willow and Poplar trees grow.
