Places Visited
Ladakh & Zanskar, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi
The ancient buddhist kingdom of Zanskar, hidden deep in the western reaches of the Great Himalayan Range, has little contact with the outside world. Even the famous Himalayan caravan routes didn't pass this way since snow keeps Zanskar's high passes inaccessible most of the year. During the winter months, the locals commute by walking across the frozen Zanskar River.
This trek takes you across several high passes with the rocky folds of the Zanskari landscape, ever changing colours with the light of the day. You get to visit medieval villages; many nestled into cliff sides, irrigated fields of buckwheat and green pea patches and some well known monasteries - Lingshed, Karsha, Sani, Bardan and Phuktal. The trails near the villages are lined with exquisitely carved mani stones.This trek remains an old time favorite and a must do for all trekkers who have visited Ladakh.
