Detailed Tour Itinerary


Day 1: Participants arrive in Leh.
The first part of the trek is by road to the village of Spituk. What follows is a long barren stretch before entering the lush Zingchen valley where the Rumbak river meets the Indus.
Today, you will enter the Hemis National Park. Once inside, look out for rare sightings of high altitude wildlife like snow leopard and blue sheep. A gradual climb will take you past a couple of villages before arriving at the camp.
The trail starts off with an ascent to Ganda La. A gradual descent and an easy walk will bring you to the camp at Skiu.
It’s an easy walk today on the banks of the Markha river, crossing it at various points. The village of Markha is the largest in the valley.
Past old stone mills, mani walls, an old castle and a monastery the trail winds past the last villages of the Markha valley before branching out towards Thachungtse.
Today is the easiest day of the trek with a gradual ascent over the open meadows of Nimaling.
On the last day of the trek you will cross the highest pass of the trek as well. The descent on the other side is steeper but will level out once you enter the Shang gorge. From there it’s an easy walk of a few hours to the village of Shang Sumdo from where a vehicle will pick you up and drop you to Leh.
