The valley of flowers, sun, sand and snow
Nubra ecolodge is a family run ecotourism venture, located near Sumur sand dunes in the Nubra Valley. The landscape facing the confluence of Shyok and Nubra rivers is the natural habitat for seabuckthorn, wild flowers and desert wildlife. The 11 acre farm with our family home, has been planted with poplar, willow, apricot and apple trees, along with vegetable gardens. It commands a 360 degree view of the Karakoram mountains, the sand dunes and the nubra river.
A large open deck facing the valley near the vegetable garden is used as a lounge or for dining in fair weather. Ideal location to go for long walks along the Sumur sand dunes and the nubra river. We recommend a minimum two days stay to enjoy the nubra experience.

The Shyok River meets the Nubra River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. This 10,000 ft (3048M) high altitude cold desert with rare precipitation and scant vegetation except along river beds and villages, which are irrigated and fertile, producing wheat, barley, peas, mustard and apples, walnuts, apricots and almond trees. The valley extends up to Turtuk to the north west and Siachen Glacier to the north east with the Sasser and Karakoram Pass connecting Nubra with Xinjiang, forming the old silk route.
