En route, stop at Khardung La, Samstanling Monastery and Diskit, followed by riding a Bactrian camel.
Your first stop is Khardung La, one of the world's highest motorable passes. Driving through the icy, windy pass is an event in itself; get ready for a lot of jealousy 'Likes' on your selfie with the "World's highest motorable road" sign-post. If you feel like grabbing a bite, the Army post at Khardung La maintains a cafe that doles out piping-hot snacks and tea at phenomenally affordable prices.
From Khardung La, head to the Samstanling Monastery in Sumur. It's a 140-year-old monastery popular for its Buddhist murals.
Next, stop at Diskit, known for the biggest monastery in Nubra. The highlight of the Diskit Monastery is a 22-metre-tall Maitreya Buddha statue that overlooks the valley.
Head further to Hundur, where you can ride the rare double-humped Bactrian camel (found only in Nubra and Kazakhstan).
Ahead of Hundur lies Turtuk, the furthest accessible point in Nubra. The drive to Turtuk takes you through what is the most scenic stretch of road in Ladakh, running alongside the turquoise blue waters of the Shyok river.
Note: Leave your car at your hotel in Leh. A local taxi or hired motorcycle will be provided as self-drive cars are not allowed by the taxi-union in Leh.
