It is difficult to imagine camels in Ladakh as one generally associates them with sandy deserts and not snow deserts. It is possible, however, to trek 8 kms across sand dunes at Hunder on one of these camels.

The only difference though, is that these camels are not the average desert camels, but a double-humped kind, which are shorter and stouter. Their humps are plump and pliable and collapse in winter when food is scarce. They are the double-humped Bactrian camels. (image by javeedshah)
