Nubra once lay along the famous Silk Route. The merchants and their winding caravanserais, loaded with exotic bolts of silk, are long gone. Still gracing the land however, are ancient monasteries and fertile villages with handsome homes, set amidst groves of poplars and fields of barley, scattered along riverbeds where a handful of Bactrian camels graze. Orchards of apple and apricot trees dot the landscape. This timeless valley offers several opportunities for hiking to pristine lakes and feasting on stunning views.

OLD HOUSE MUSEUM
Traditional Ladakhi houses are made from natural and locally sourced materials. It’s a vernacular architecture where the kitchen plays a pivotal role. Kitchens are built with windows facing southward’s to maximise sunlight during long winters. The old house (Zhimskhang) is reminiscent of the olden days. Their kitchen is primarily a museum which is maintained by a local women self-help group. Upon arrival, you will be welcome with a cup of butter tea and Ladakhi snacks by a beautiful lady in traditional attire.
-Tickets : 300/person
(The amount goes to the old house owner)
