Once you drive into Nubra Valley the scenery amazes you! But one activity that was an unforgettable experience for me was the ride we took on a double humped camel- the Bactarian Camel. The setting is perfect- high altitude sand dunes, by the Shyok River with the snow peaked mountains for a back drop. While the activity itself is extremely commercialized...wen you ride into the dunes, the views are amazing and the local guide can tell you a lot about the place and its wonders. the irony was that while I was sighing and wishing I could live here forever, he was telling how he'd be more than happy to trade places with me and head to city life!! :)
