About Hundar

Beautiful but remote, Hunder village is situated close the Siachen glacier and Pakistan border in Jammu and Kashmir and sits like an oasis in the middle of cold desert in Nubra valley. Hunder is approximately 160 km from Leh and one has to cross Khardung La, the world’s highest motorable pass to reach the remote village. Entry beyond Hunder village is barred as the area ahead is controlled by the Indian Army. It is seven km from Diskit which is known for its Buddhist monastery, Nubra has acquired fame for its sand dunes, the cold desert that surrounds it. Hunder is also famous for its Buddhist monastery known as Hundur gompa situated close to the Diskit monastery. It is one of the oldest monasteries of Nubra valley. The high altitude desert, with rolling expanse of sand dunes and barren landscape is the USP of Hunder village. Joyrides on the Bactrian camel through the sand dunes is a must do for the tourists who visit Hunder.
