Nubra is a cold desert at 10000 ft above sea level and the color of the sand is unlike anywhere in India. These dunes lie close to the Hunder village that sits like an oasis in the middle of the cold desert. The weather is not friendly here and it gets pretty cold once the Sun hides behind the clouds. The strong breeze keeps blowing the fine sands, reshaping them into new shapes.

Rare to see green grass in these areas.
As the day passes, the winds pick up and create a kind of sand storm. You have to keep your mouth shut otherwise..
Mani was kind to pose for some photos.

Even though the sand was harsh, we did get some wonderful photos.
Time passed quickly and soon the Sun was setting behind the mountains.
