about shyok valley

The Shyok Valley comprises two towns beyond which you cannot travel because of Army restrictions; the route ahead leads to Baltistan. The first is Diskit km from Leh), which has the main market in the area. The Diskit Monastery, sitting dramatically on a hillside above the old town, is its crowning glory.

Bactria is the ancient name of the area between the Oxus and Indus rivers, and the camels are reminders of the region’s past contact with Central Asia. The sand dunes next to the Shyok River are famous and fall a couple of kilometres before Hundar, on the way from Diskit. Rides on the double humped Bactrian camels are offered here. This area also has a forest of seabuckthorn, a medicinal berry — you will find juices, jams and wines made from it all over Ladakh.
