Hunder (Nubra Valley)- Turtuk- Nubra Valley. Enjoy a yummy organic breakfast in Hunder and explore near by destinations- Hunder to Turtuk is nothing less than exceptional.

Everything from apricots, apples, tomatoes, cauliflowers, and cabbages grow in Turtuk. Turtuk is a gallery of unspeakable beauty, it is a colourful portrait.

Even though the roads are broken, muddy, and narrow, there is still a road to the highest motorable road for a civilian. While you ride to the hilltop, you understand the toil it takes to build and maintain a road at this altitude; the respect for BRO reaches a new height. Your eyes glitter by looking at BRO’s board of highest motorable road, the feeling is so difficult to express. ‘Mission accomplished’ You along with many other overly enthusiastic riders run for the customary photograph with the board. After the joyous celebration, we drive downhill for Kilometers, feels scary while looking at endless downhill roads.
