Start directly from Leh (3.500 m) and walk via a small pass (3.800 m) to Sabu. In Sabu you can visit a bigger and a small monastery. Then continue towards the upper end of Sabu. As Sabu is quite a big village, it takes some time, but you're rewarded with many glimpses of village life. Camp at 3.850 m
Cross the bridge to the left and follow the stream upwards. There is a path, sometimes crossed by smaller animal trails. There are many possibilities of resting at the water and enjoy the view towards the Stok Range. On 4.900 m a small plateau is reached with two valleys leading into the mountains. Pitch your tent at this beautiful place
The right valley is yours. Climb up while following the stream, but don't miss the Zig-zag-path towards the left leading to the pass. It takes quite some time to get up to the pass which appears closer then it is. But the view is always great and getting with every step more spectacular. Digar-la is 5.435 m high and offers great views to North and South. The walk down along the river goes slowly via many miniplateaus. There are many possibilities of pitching the tent – Chumik Yogma is a very beautiful one. Sleep on an altitude of 4.780 m.
Going down one of the most beautiful high altitude valleys of Ladakh. Quite broad it offers great views to the opposite mountain range while descending slowly mostly on green gras along the river. See Dzos and maybe some Yaks grazing, marmots peeping out of their holes and listen to the singing of birds. After 1,5 to 2 hours you spot the wide spread fields of Digar village. Digar is approx. 4.000 m high. The small Gompa is not always open and you have to search for someone with the key. When looking to the west, you can spot Tangyar and the valley leading towards Nebuk-la. Down to Kungru is a road with nearly no cars, but there are lots of short-cuts to go. In Kungru on 3.630 m walk up the not-tared road to the most beautiful located village of Khyema at 4.140 m.
From Khyema you have to climb on a Zig-Zag-Path to the Khyema-la pass (4.620 m) and walk down the trail to the road. Follow it down to Tangyar. Unfortunatly there is this approx. 3 km road to walk, which leads to the Wari-la, but it is very very few cars to drive there, so it is not too bad. The beautiful scenery and the encounters with the locals in this quite rare visited villages add to the pleasure in visiting the western part of Nubra Valley. Tangyar has a spectacular located small monastery and has beautiful old houses nestled at the foot of it. Camp on a meadow on 3.870 m.
To find the path out of the village is a little tricky, but just keep up the river and take the left path of it when reaching the bridge. And then walk just up, up and up until the reached the beautiful camp of Jukthey at 4.930 m with a small spring. When looking back you can spot Digar and the way you have already trekked.
Trek up to the side-valley on the right and continue until you find the start of a zig-zag-path (not so easy to spot – watch out for stone piles) leading to the pass. The Nebuk-la is quite broad at an altitude of 5.385 m and offers great views to the spectacular scenery back and in front of you. Walk down the valley and follow the river on the left side on an obvious path. It leads towards another valley to the right. Close to the junction you find a small Doksa (shepherds hut). From here to Rale it is possible to walk on both sides of the river. Pitch your tent on 4.415 m a little before reaching Rale.
Take your time walking through Rale, maybe visit the small village government school, have a chat with the villagers – it is a nice located place with people being involved in farming and husbandry. Continue the path on the right river-side, reach a small pass at 4.050 m, spot some old petroglyphs and walk down to meet people working on a road to Rale. In 2014 it was far from being accomplished. Down to Zanmo it is dusty, but OK to walk – in Zanmo better to ask the car to get you from there as the 4 km tared road to Durbuk are not really pleasant through military area.In Durbuk you could head for a nice hot shower in the nearby hotel in Tangtse or you continue directly to the Pangong lake. Or, if time is too limited, just head back to Leh via the Chang-la.

Our trip was even more memorable and enjoyable because of the facilities that Overland Escape provided us.Mr. Tunduk Namgyal, who drove us in and around Kerala , was very well versed with the roads, had an excellent idea about the climate and all the information & history about the places we visited.
