Ladakh – Zanskar Traverse

FROM £ 1998

A classic Indian Himalayan trek offering glimpses of unique Zanskari culture. Ladakh and Zanskar, (otherwise known as ‘Little Tibet’) comprise a beautiful desert region, high in the western Himalayan plateau.  This Ladakh trek is a fantastic journey across the Indian Himalaya taking you through wonderful Zanskari valleys using trading routes and ancient paths of the Gaddi shepherds.

Start the trip with an amazing flight over the Indian Himalaya to Leh, the capital of Ladakh. After a few days acclimatising to the rarefied air set off on one of spectacular road drives in the world to enter southern Zanaskar valley. The trek starts at Base of Senge La and a walk into the heart of Zanskar. Crossing Sengela ( 5090 m) the Parfila (3900 m), we are now in the main Zanskar . After a visit to the impressive cliff-side monastery of Phuktal, we cross phirtsela ( 5435m). The trek ends in Kilong Sarai and the trip finishes with a hard but fascinating drive over the Rothang Pass to Manali. Finally, on to Chandigarh, where we catch the train back to Delhi.

This is a wonderful but tough Ladakh trek involving several river and stream fordings which will require wading, in some cases in waters up to waist high. There are some long days so a good level of physical fitness is required.

It is the client’s responsibility to obtain their visas before the intended date of departure.
