Zanskar & Ladakh
 

 

July-Aug.


Beyond the16,800 Baralach La pass in Lahul, lie the Lingti Plains. To the west is the Shingo La and to the north is the Phitse La, both over 15,000 Across them is Zanskar, and area of awesome natural beauty, and of rare Buddhist treasures. For centuries, pilgrims and traders have trekked across these areas on foot, horse and yak. Today the trekker comes here for adventure. You are on top of the world.

Rocks sculpted into weird shapes by winter winds loom large in colours that are seldom seen elsewhere. Villages are far and few between but the villagers, whenever encountered, are hospitable and always offer you a cup of butte-tea. Lamas welcome you to ancient monasteries scattered on steep cliff edges.

You do not have to be young or a mountaineer to trek this incredible and savagely beautiful terrain. But the harsh and arid climate does require you to be fit for the extremes in temperature are always there.

The treks into Zanskar could be from 12 days to 24 days duration.
