Our tour operator, Skywalker Travel in Leh, had just received a new permit for tourists to visit small Udmaru with 70 houses in the Nubra Valley. Access is either by walking across a long bridge (the shorter way from Hunder) or by going another hour and crossing the river over a military bridge. Heading to Udmaru, our guides had to carry everything over the walking bridge, through a gravel bed on the other side, uphill, then another mile into Udmaru Village.

Remote Udmaru Monastery was nearby and takes approximately 2 hours to hike up. We got two-thirds of the way before Steve had a vertigo attack and we turned around. On the ride back to Hunder days later, we got a good view of the monastery from across the river and it really didn't look too impressive. That made us feel better about missing it.
