Also known as the "Ship of desert" , Camel has been the major mode of transportation in deserts. They are known as the lifeline for the desert people. Camel Safari has been a experience that is happening since the ancient times, when no other modern means of communications were developed by man and animals were the sole transport used for communication. To the surprise of many people who are aware of camel Safari in the hot deserts of Rajasthan only, will be surprised to know that camel safari is carried out in the cold deserts of Ladakh also.
In the months of July, August and September. As one explores the rugged mountain terrain on a camel back, one feels far removed from the earth. A real memorable experience. An experience that one won't be able to forget whole of life. Reason being that beside the savage and extreme image of this cold desert lies the adventure of exploring the beautiful landscape and passage through remote villages. How about camping in tents, experience spending the night under the stars.
However,one needs to learn the balancing act and get used to the movements of camel, while one is on a camel ride.
One can explore the charming villages of Nubra on camel back. Nubra Valley is a fascinating place. Highly contrastive, the landscape would immediately change from fertile green apricot fields to a dry Saharan Desert-like terrain with snow-capped peaks in the distance.
In Nubra one can find a small population of the shaggy double-humped Bactrian camels, which in the old days were used as pack animals on the Central Asian trade route. During the past 50 years, they have been bred for transport purposes in Nubra. Today visitors to Nubra can use these animals for going on camel safaris. The main population centers are Deskit and Hunder.
Camel Safari provides a commanding view of the valleys, villages and Buddhist Gompas. Tourists can inspect the Panamic village- the last leg of Camel Safari and visit hot springs locally reputed to have therapeutic qualities.
