Visit monasteries, palaces, museums, the local market place, Shey, Thiksey Gompa, and Stok Gompa. We will also hike to the Leh palace in the evening followed by leisure time. Overnight stay in hotel.
After an early breakfast, we will drive through the Spikut village to reach Zingchen. This is where our hiking with a moderate gradient will commence. The trail will pass through Rumbak village to reach Yurutse. Overnight stay in tents.
Today’s trek will start with an ascent to Ganda La – a steep climb with strong winds as we proceed to the later half of the day. The pass will offer you views of both sides of the valleys along with distant views of the Zanskar range. Next, we will descent to Shingo village after which our path leads us to a narrow gorge, leading towards Skiu – a place where rivers coming from the Markha valley and Shingo meet. Overnight stay in tents, at Skiu.
A long but a moderate hike, passing by several streams, will take us to Markha village – a place with green fields and willow trees in between the cold, arid terrain. Overnight stay in tents.
Today we will come across a lot of streams and small rivers as we make our way through settlements and grazing grounds. While walking towards Hankar, we will come across the sight of the formidable Kangyatze Peak at 6400 m and right around here, we will camp for the night!
A short walk will take us to Nimalain campsite – a place with an open valley, unrestricted brazing grounds and the Kangyatze Peak in the background. The constant wind blowing in this area may make it uncomfortable. If we wish, we can take a short trip today to the base camp of Kangyatse. Overnight stay in tents.
An early breakfast and a steep climb later, we will reach the top of the highest pass on our trail, the Kongmaru La at 5200 m. The destination will reward you the mindblowing sights of Nun Kun in the west and Saser Kangri in the North! We will get our cameras out here to celebrate and record our triumph and then descend to Sukarmo. From now, our trail is a flat walk along the river till we come to the road head at Sumdo from where we will drive to Leh.
