The Nubra valley has a unique landscape of snow-clad mountains, wild streams and desert.

The valley, which separates the Ladakh and Karakoram ranges, lies just to the north of Khardung La, better known for being the highest motorable pass in the world.

Sparsely populated towns dot this desert valley’s expanse.

In its midst are the Buddhist monasteries at Diskit and Spangmik, with intricate thangkas and colourful paintings adorning their walls.

I walked across the sand dunes of Nubra, took an evening stroll through the sea-buckthorn-lined village of Hunder, and experienced the valley’s bare beauty.

These are images from my journey.
