Forests of sea-buckthorn - popularly known as ‘Leh Berry’, a medicinal plant rich in bio-molecules, vitamins and nutritive properties are found here.
Hunder Gompa, the Buddhist monastery of the Hunder village is one of the oldest in the Nubra valley. It has some old frescos and a statue of Buddha. The monastery is also the best place in the village for a view of the dipping sun.

One can witness the ancient cultures of the valley during the celebration of the Festival of Hundur, jointly celebrated by monasteries of Diskit and Hunder. Performance of the Cham dance, display of traditional arts and sports is the highlight of the festival.
