Laluks, fantastic snaps of the Hunder stretch.

Thanks for sharing!

Liked the snaps of the Bactrians. Never knew they are called Bactrians.

Bactrian camels are not native to Nubra Valley, they have come on the Silk Route from deserts of the Central Asia/Mongolia.

We stopped near the Police Checkpost by 13:45hours and there was a small tea shop there. We had momos, thupkas, maggis and Chowmiens here. That was our well deserved lunch. By 14:45 we started our drive towards Turtuk.
