Nubra Valley is a few hours to the North of Leh; this is where the Shyok and Siachan rivers meet. The valley separates Ladakh from the Karakoram Ranges and the mighty Siachen Glacier. The valley is accessible through the world's highest motorable road : the Khardung La. Alongside the Nubra Valley lies the Sasser Pass and the famous Karakoram Pass which connects Nubra with Xinjiang, China. Panamik Village is the last settlement in the northern end of the Nubra valley and is open to tourists. Nubra's stark landscape, jagged mountains and altitude attract adventure tourists from across the globe.
