Ahead of the convergence of the Shyok and Nubra rivers, Sumur is a place of haven extended over a large area. It shelters the most prominent monastery, Samstem Ling Gompa, which arrives after a pleasant forty minute walk. This monastery was built in the year 1841 and the Gompa accumulates monks within the age group of 7 to 70. To catch the morning or evening puja, you will have to do a night stay in Sumur. Most of the guest houses are located on the sand lane which leads from the bus stop at the prayer wheel.

If you want to attend the puja you will have to do an overnight stay in Sumur. There is no need to worry because accommodation facilities are provided in Sumur`s hotel`s at reasonable rates. The AO guesthouse located nearby the main road offers basic double rooms, camping, vegetarian cafe and garden. You get another option of camping down the lane to the galaxy guesthouse for just Rs.60. An additional walk of ten minutes will lead you to the friendly Stakray guesthouse which avails a facility of basic double rooms overlooking a huge vegetable garden and a traditional Ladakhi kitchen. It is a 1.5 km trek to the Gompa from here, which is convenient for catching the pujas.

On the far side of the valley, another dramatic gorge runs north along the Nubra river. Sumur is the largest village here, a pretty, green settlement with some interesting Buddhist relics. About 1 km uphill from Sumur is the huge Samstemling gompa, with a school full of friendly novice monks and a number of old and modern prayer halls full of quite distinguished murals. Further north on the main road is the small village of Tegar, with a small, adobe gompa enshrining a giant prayer wheel. Above the road are the burnt out ruins of the Zamskhang palace,a former residence of the kings of Nubra, surrounded by the tiny stupas filled with thousands of votive clay tablets left here by pilgrims on the Silk Road. There is another medieval gompa a few kilometres north at Pinchimik.
