One of the great classics of Zanskar! Extraordinary landscapes, wild nature, small suspended paths linking villages cut off from the world for most of the year.
10-day long version trek (Lamayuru to Padum), possibility of shortening (4 to 6 days, departure from Photoksar or the northern camp of Singe La or Skumpatta); possibility of making “variants”, especially from Rangdum (Ask us for more informations).
This trek is possible with children (a minimum of training is required; two three “air” passages). It is also possible to shorten the stages (stages from 7 to 10 kilometres per day).
(Maximum altitude difference 1000m/day, maximum altitude 5000m/day; night in a tent, possibility to stay with a local at the end of the trek; transfer from and to Leh in a 4*4. Warning: from Padum, the return is generally made over two days, night in a nunnery).
Possibility to combine this offer with mini treks around Padum (including a 2 to 4 day trek to the monastery of Phuktal).
