Ladakh and the Nubra valley has been a crossroad for commercial activities between India, Tibet and Central Asia. It was an important stage for caravans following the Silk Road, which where swapping their mules for the famous camels of Bactriane. The geopolitics evolution tended to transform the Nubra valley into a unique bubbly place only accessible by highest motorable roads in the world, passing over the Khardung la pass at a height of 5400 m. Lying approximately 400m lower than Leh, Nubra sports a much milder climate, which enables its inhabitants to cultivate more extensively, as compared to their counterparts in the main Indus valley. It is only since 1995 that the restricted area of the Nubra opened its ours to foreigners. The itinerary links the Indus and Nubra valley, through mineral landscapes, in an atmosphere of ancestral traditions.
