Road to Leh, Hunder

Sun-kissed apricots and pink apples from the trees entice visitors. Many guest houses even have these fruit trees growing in their courtyards. You can ask your hosts and feast on a few, straight from the tree! The Nubra river paints this village in rich strokes of green although this place is in the middle of a ‘cold desert.’ The desert is the main attraction, with its long stretches of sand dunes and camels. People can view and experience the desert while staying at the green and comfortable Hunder village. Don’t miss a ride on the two-humped Bactrian camels that can be seen there.

Lamayuru, the first view as you approach from Kargil on NH1 towards Leh.

While Manali Leh highway is adventurous. The Srinagar to Leh road is scenic, has a better support system, great stay options and is easier in terms of acclimatize.
