Overview

It is one of the most adventurous treks on an isolated route which takes far into the mountains. It is a real wilderness experience for the adventure seekers, and the best period for exploration is from August to October when most of the snow has melted and the roaring rivers are passable.

The trek starts from Hemis monastery (one of the richest monastery in Ladakh. It enters in famous Markha Valley and Zanskar via Junglam, which is open only for a month. In summer this route is closed due to water crossing and in winter heavy snowfall.

This itinerary is very less frequented and we have to cross rivers many times. The Ladakh trekking tour will be an ideal one in September only when flow of water is low. Until Zangla during first seven days we will not see even a single village.

It is an extremely demanding trek as one constantly has to acclimatize with the high altitudes and be constantly on the move. One does get a one of a kind experience traversing through the adventurous trek routes. Hemis-Padum is an unusual journey which will leads to discovery of a world of untouched beauty.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Leave Leh by jeep to the starting point of the trek at Martselang 3600 m. En route we will visit the first Palace of Ladakh at Shey followed by a visit to the famous Yellow Sect monastery of Thikse, which houses one of the biggest Buddha sculpture known as the future Buddha. We visit Hemis, the biggest and the most famous Drukpa monastery of Ladakh, built in the early 17th century. After the visits we will drive to Martselang and start our trek to Shang Sumdo, a small village at 3700 m. Martselang is the entry point into the Hemis National Park in which we may see endangered high altitude animals like Snow leopard, Tibetan Wolves, the great Tibetan Sheep and the Golden Eagle.
