Trekking In Ladakh

Trekking in ladakh

In the highest reaches of the Western Himalaya is Ladakh, and area of rugged beauty, much like a moonscape at times. It is a mountainous land of high passes, green-bottomed valleys and vast, barren expanses, with its rarefied atmosphere, lying in the shadows of the Karakoram and Himalayas.

This Challenging Trek focuses mainly on life of Nomadic People, Monasteries, Wildlife and some high altitude Lakes of Changthang. The Trek starts from Rumtse (4100m) a village in Eastern part of Ladakh and ends at Tsomoriri Lake, a beautiful High altitude lake in Changthang, which is also the breeding ground to birds like the Bar-necked geese and the Brahminy duck. The barren region is home to numerous species of wildlife including the wild Ass Kiang, Himalayan Marmot, Tibetan Antelope, and Himalayan Ibex. The route traverses across a number of high passes and while the scenery is spectacular the entire route is through vast wilderness and high altitude which requires good acclimatization.
