A challenging, adventurous trek that covers remote Ladakh and Zanskar: filled with steep ascents and winding descents across high passes and deep gorges lined with multi-hued rocks and finally, a series of quaint villages dotted with white mud-brick buildings and Buddhist monuments. This trek offers an abundance of spectacular thrills and glorious scenic views that showcase nature in its splendidly raw form juxtaposed with intimate experiences of an exotic culture. After two days of gentle acclimatization in and around Leh, we begin our trek from Chilling village through Dundunchen La (4,849m). Take in breathtaking views of the Stok range as we descend to the beautiful Ripchar valley, passing the quaint villages of Sumdo, Phenjila and Hanupatta past flower-filled meadows and dramatic mountain landscapes.
Next, we cross Sniugutse La (5,009m) with panoramic views of the Zanskar range and Tsomothang peak. Marmots and ibexes can be occasionally sighted. Trek alongside the Kong River before scaling Kanji La (5,279m), the highest point on this trek, to experience that ‘top of the world’ feeling! Finally, a descent into enchanting Rangdum concludes our trek followed by a drive to Leh, through Suru valley past views of Nun-kun and an overnight stop at Kargil, a small town midway between Leh and Srinagar.
