It's a nice place but do remember that this place is filled with tourists. This is perhaps the only spot people come to in Nubra Valley.

Here in Hunder, unlike the common ones, one can see bactrian camel mostly. The packages were of 15mins, 30mins and 1 hour. We took the package of 30mins which costed us Rs. 350/- each. We really enjoyed the ride.

Sand dunes on the river bed! Not something one would expect. Also, in India, the double humped Bactrian camel is probably found only in this place. Camel rides on the sand dunes are a popular tourist attraction and you can expect queues for the rides...More
