Hunder Tourism & Travel Guide

Barren with a hint of greenery, the Hunder village is as mesmerising as the other places in Ladakh. Situated 160 km from Leh, in Nubra Valley, reaching Hunder is a little difficult for those who don't like mountainous roads. To reach Hunder, one has to cross Khardungla (which is considered to be the highest motorable pass in the world) and it's almost a 5 to 6 hour journey since the roads are a little tricky. The village itself has many homestays and resorts and it's very wise to spend a few days amidst the breathtaking beauty and serenity this small village has to offer. One of the major attractions of Hunder are the Bactrian (double-humped) camels, mostly spotted calmly grazing amidst the boundless sand dunes in the area! Thought the area around the village is quiet and isolated, the village itself is full of life and cheerful people. Do visit the Hundur Gompa, a Buddhist monastery located close to the Diskit monastery and one of the oldest monasteries in Ladakh.

Gar firdaus ruhe zamin ast, Hamin asto, hamin asto, hamin ast. “If there is a heaven on earth, it’s here, it’s here, it’s here.” This is how the Sufi mystic Amir Khusrow has described the Kashmir Valley, and Srinagar is at the heart of the valley. Smack in the middle of the city is the mighty Dal Lake, its placid water reflecting the vivid kaleidoscope of innumerous houseboats, shikaras (taxi-boats), and the snow-capped Pir Panjal range: a sight that will make your heart skip a beat. The city is home to the state-of-the-art Mughal Gardens, Shalimar Bagh and Nishant Bagh being the most famous of them. The gardens exhibit the Mughal taste of nature and the philosophy of disciplining nature rather than imitating it: fountain pools and canals, meticulously manicured hedges, and motley flowerbeds. Also known as the Kashmiri Venice, Srinagar is a place not to be missed by those seeking a tranquil refuge in the lap of the Himalayas.
