About The Destination

Set amidst the mighty Karakoram and the Great Himalayan ranges, Ladakh was an important trade route between Central Asia and once undivided India.  Displaying stunning landscapes, its remote location and difficult access has ensured that a unique cultural community sustained and thrived. Nurla in Leh district is located at a lower altitude than Leh town, making it a good base to acclimatize when you arrive in this land of high-passes. The Apricot Tree is tucked away on the outskirts of Nurla village and is a ninety minute drive from Leh airport. Located just off the Leh-Srinagar highway and perched on a gentle slope overlooking the Indus river, the hotel is set in an orchard of apple and apricot trees, offers sounds and views of the river and crisp mountain air.
