Started for nubra valley at 9:00 am. Was positively stoked about crossing khardungla top, it being the highest motorable crossing. The temperature dropped drastically. Advisable to eat lot of calorie rich foods. Hydrate yourself well and keep chocolates and biscuits handy. A good place to ramp up your provisions is khardung village. Reached diskit at 3:00 pm. The approach road to diskit adjacent to shyok river is very scenic and amazing for photos. Diskit monastery and the places around can be explored at leisure. Following our departure from there we went to the sand dunes. Unless you are a big fan of camel riding its not really worth a visit. However after 7 hours on the road the flat stretch of land is a welcome break for your legs. Also needless to mention, a place for amazing shots. Proceeded to a homestay in Hunder. Spent the night there.
