Overview

North of the Great Himalayan Treks, amongst a tangled knot of jagged mountains, lies a rugged and fascinating land, the once independent kingdom of Zanskar. Sandwiched between the Indus Valley and the main crest of the Indian Himalaya, this remote and inaccessible setting well guarded by snowy mountain passes, has kept alive an archaic form of Tibetan Buddhism which flourishes in chain of far-flung monasteries, most of which occupy spectacular fortified locations, high on rocky ridges in isolated valleys.

On the way you get to visit some ancient monasteries dramatically built on jagged hillsides and also stop and meet the Friendly Zanskari inhabitants. Quaint villages, high grassy meadows, a few crystal clear springs, shimmering snow clad mountains and the beauty of the desolate landscape makes this a fascinating trek.

Lovely high meadow camp sites and dry desert land, high passes and snow-capped peaks stunning scenery, Buddhist monasteries and picturesque villages with their irrigated fields of barley and potatoes, and fascinating encounters with the Zanskari people turn a trek in this area into an unforgettable experience.

    I was impressed by the services of hotel staffs in manali from where we started our journey to the exciting adenture of himalayan hills. The food was really tasty, the resataurants were really good . Our trek was divided in many smaller part and i felt each smaller trek was completely new and unique in itself.

    it was my solo trip but i made many new friends. Our group was really passionate about trekking. In the entire trip i liked the Lamyur which falls between the Indus Valley and the main crest of the Indian Himalaya, surrounded by half covered snowy mountain passes. it was very adventurous moment while discoveing the new places for the first time.
