While sight seeing we sw some amazing point and animals like the blue sheep and marmots . Some villages were really nice like Gangra and Sumdo. The trekking trails are not so though to hike. We had a pleasant stay there.

Overview

The trek from Chumathang to Yaya Tso Trek takes 6 days and the best time to do it is from Mid June to September. We drive from Leh to Chumathang in 4 hours. Chumathang is well known for its springs. It has medical importance but the use of water here is also done to wash clothes. The Chumathang village is not very far from the springs and a small monastery nearby can be a good place to explore.

From Chumathang we walk across the village, cross the animal pastures, get a chance to spot wildlife like blue sheep and marmots and take in some amazing sights of natural beauty. After 5 hours we arrive at Gangra. Next stop is Sumdo that takes 4 hours. Sumdo is where three valleys merge together. It is a sight to behold and surely a place to pitch up tents for the day.

From Sumdo we leave for Phayalung. It takes about 8 hours for the trek to complete. Climb to Choku La is pretty tough hence we start early in the morning. From Phayalung we trek to Yayatso. We come across several shepherds, a gorgeous flowing river, a desert plateau and then the village Yaya. The lake near this village is called Yaya tso. We drive down to Mahe halting to visit the nunnery and then go straight to Leh.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - The enjoyable drive beside the Indus river takes 3, 5 “ 4 hours. Chumathang is well-known for the presence of its Hot Springs.

    I was a six days trekking and we had visited the place in summer. This trek is very popular for its springs and medical importance. We explore the monastery nearby which was beautiful.

    i hail from metro city where our lives are so busy that we never get the chance to enjoy and discover such places. I loved my first trekking expedition. Sight seeing was a great adventure, saw the different kinds of shepherds, the continous flowing river, endless desert plateau and then beautiful lake Yaya.

    Our trekking from Gangra to Sumdo was easier than the rest trails where we enjoyed our sight seeing with my friends. Sumdo is a very nice place to explore because there are lot of monastaries located at the site. Loved The site.
