Nubra Valley:

The Nubra Valley is situated about 140 km north of Leh. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. above sea level. The Sasser Pass and the famous Karakoram Pass lie to the northwest of the valley which connect Nubra with Xinjiang. Historically, this was a critical trade route from East Turkestan and Central Asia. Along the Nubra river lie the quaint villages of Sumur, Tiger, Tirith and Panamik. Sumur is also known for an important Gompa or monastery called Samstanling; while Panamik is noted for its hot springs. Across the Nubra at Panamik, is an isolated Ensa Gompa located on a hill. Most of the people are of mixed Tibetan and Central Asian origin and speak varieties of the Balti language. The Nubra valley is a fertile tract of land producing a variety of fruits and nuts.

The beautiful village of Bogdang is also located in the valley. It is famous for its people, who have startling blue eyes, auburn hair and ruddy cheeks as compared to the typical mongoloid features of the Ladakhis. Local lore has it that they were a Greek tribe who came in search of Jesus Christ’s tomb and settled here. Hunder, a village in Nubra valley, is famous for its roaming camels.

Pangong

Pangong Tso/Lake is located in the Himalayan Mountain Range on the Indo-China Border. It is about 4,250 m (13,900 ft) in altitude and 134 km (83.3 m) long. One of the most memorable features of Pangong Tso is its ability to freeze in the winter even though its a salt water lake. The flora ,or lack of it, is very unique to Pangong Tso. According to credible reports, the lake is devoid of both micro-vegetation and acquatic life, such as fish and crustaceans. However, the lake is an important breeding ground for migratory birds, including the Bar-headed geese and Brahmini Ducks.

Aryan Valley

Located around 163 km north-west of the town of Leh, the village settlements of Dha and Hanu are placed on the meeting points of Indus and Shyok Rivers in the Kargil region. Famed as the ‘Land of Aryans’, these villages are home to Brokpa or Drokpa community of Ladakh.  The Brokpas have made around 5 villages their home but the tourists are permitted to visit only villages- Dha and Hanu. Apart from tourists, these villages are an attraction for anthropologists also.

It is a belief that the residents of these villages were a part of Alexander the Great’s army and came here more than 2000 years ago. Brokpas have a custom of marrying only in their own community and this has helped them in keeping their unique features intact. They are known for their blue-colored eyes, fair complexion and an Ind-Aryan look. But because of the very same reason, their population has also remained limited, around 2000.

The people of Drokpa community look different from the residents of Ladakh and even have their own dressing style. Nickname as ‘Flower women of Ladakh’, the women of the community wear flowers on their hats. Polyandry is also practiced in the community.

Buddhism is followed in Ladakh but contrary to this, Brokpas are followers of Bon religion and Animism. There sacred animal is Ibex and they are known for preserving their rituals and traditions from ages.

Brokpa villages are also known for their picturesque locations and lush green landscape. Also because of being placed on a lower elevation, Dha and Hanu have higher temperatures than the other Ladakhi regions. The temperature here rises up to 40 degree Celsius and also helps in abundant vegetation. Horticulture is the main occupation of the locals and they grow excellent- quality apples and apricots.
