    Overview

    Rumbuk is a Beautiful village which lies in the route of Stok Kangri. As one approaches Rumbak fields the valley suddenly opens up with snowcapped mountains in the background which is a great place to view Ladakh flora and fauna. Some of the prized sightings would be Blue sheep, the Great Tibetan sheep or the Argali, various mountain and migratory birds, high altitude flora and occasionally a Tibetan Wolf or a Snow leopard if extremely lucky.

    During this trek one also gets to tread through the Stok La pass (4900 M) which commands great views of the Indus valley. En route one can visit the Stok Palace museum which houses rare collections of Ladakhi rulers.

    This trek is the part of the Markha Valley Trek - a well known trek famous for wild animals. In fact a documentary made on Snow Leopards which eventually won a lot of appreciation and awards was shot in the same valley. It is a perfect moderately difficult trek for the weekend traveler. Low on time and still intend to get a flavor of Ladakh, this is the place.

    Itinerary
    • 1
      Starting first day from Spituk to Zingchen 3700 m this takes 4-5 hours.We begin our journey in a jeep. The roads are very dry with a very exposed land, so we need water and protection against the sun. After travelling for 3 hours, the landscape becomes greener as we move into the Zingchen Valley, where the Rumbak river flows into the Indus. In the small village of Zingchen we will find our camp, which means ˜big field. Rest of the day is reserved for enjoying the view and we can also take a dip in the river.

        It was a very short trek, after reaching the peak point we took many snaps and selfies .The mountains and the river looks so beautiful. The trail is steep and it becomes more difficult when it is covered with snow.

        It was my first trip in the valley of ladhak. i saw some wild animals like the snow leopards which was a great feeling for me. The trek has a moderate level of difficulty but the beautiful and panaromic views will definately steal your hearts.
