Leh - Khardungla Pass - Nubra Valley
We headed for a 2 Night 3 day trip towards Nubra valley.
We hired a taxi during for our entire stay in Leh. One could always hire a taxi on need to basis as per ones need at Leh market and share the taxi/cab with other travellers to save cost. We rented a mountain bike at the Leh market to do a downhill. One can easily fit in the bi-cycle on top of an Innova.
Road up to Khardungla-pass will be bumpy for the last 12 KMs or so. It would be a good idea to get off the car and set of hiking up the hill and enjoy the cool weather.
You will be able to cycle down a good 80 odd KMs from the hill top going down towards Nubra Valley till North Pulli. Enjoy the beautiful scenery, the adrenaline rush cycling down hill, maneuver thru the curves the hill has to offer.
We started of from Leh at 6 in the morning and reached Nubra by late eve. The time taken was mainly because of the number of stops we took, cycling and walking on the way along.
As one says it's not about reaching the destination, it's about enjoying the journey.
Stay at the home stays at Nubra, one gets to witness how self sufficient the locals are in a landlocked place with organic foods cultivated in the backyards of each house.
Don't miss the chance to do some night photography of the milky way while you are here. The skies just lit up Here :-)
