Perched atop a rugged hill overlooking the ancient city of Leh in Ladakh, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa stands as a timeless sentinel looking over the city of Leh. Constructed in the early 15th century by King Tashi Namgyal, it houses a diverse collection of ancient manuscripts, murals, and intricately crafted statues.

Today, we embark on a journey to Nubra, a cold desert situated at an elevation of 10,000 feet above sea level. The climate in this remote village can be quite unforgiving, particularly when the sun retreats behind the clouds. The robust breeze sweeps through, continuously rearranging the fine sands and reshaping the dunes in this rugged landscape.

Road to Khardungla Pass

The drive from Leh to Nubra Valley goes through Khardungla Pass, said to be one of the highest motorable road in the world. Goes without saying the view was just mesmerising as we motored along the golden mountains towards snow capped peaks. I’ve always had this desire to travel the world – but nothing beats exploring your own country.
