Wooo i just loved the Tsomoriri Lake which looks awesome. Talking about the trek then its quite tough and challenging one but the guides will take care of it. Just follow their instruction. A lovely trek i would say.

Overview

This trek is tough and challenging and at the same time it is beautiful and rewarding. This trek needs proper advanced preparation with regards to the participants physical condition as well as the team setup. This trek is also known in Himachal as the Parang la Trek as it crosses through the high pass of Parangla at an altitude of 5089 M which is the highest point in this trek. The average walk per day is about 6 hrs though variations are there on individual days.

 

Ladakh Trek from the beautiful Spiti Valley in Himachal over high passes to the picturesque lake of Tso Moriri inLadakh tour package and then on to the rugged mountains of Rumtse. It is one of the most beautiful trails in the Western Himalayas going over Parang La with its grand view and Changpa territory.

 

A nomadic community (living off flocks of yaks and sheep), the Changpas have a timelessness about them. Trading in pashmina, yaks and living in yak hair tents called rebos, they have adapted to the harsh dry air of the Changthang.

 

The trek is also a great one to catch sight of high altitude Wildlife such as kyangs or Tibetan Wild Asses (their only other cousins are the wild asses of Rann of Kutch in Gujarat), the highly endangered black-necked cranes, bar headed geese and Tibetan wolves.

 

This trek which starts from Ladakh and ends in the tribal region of Himachal Pradesh can be considered “off the beaten trek” as less people opt for it due to its toughness. Most fascinating part is that it passes through the high altitude lake Tso Moriri.

Itinerary

  • Day 1 - Pungunagu - Tisaling (4520 m), 7 hrs.

    The path now ascends for 2 hours towards the Shingbuk La (4950m). From top of pass, we can have panoramic views of Tso Kar Lake and the Rupshu valley. On the other side of the pass is the campsite at Tisaling.

  • Day 2 - Manali - Kaza (3900m) 8 hrs.

    The drive to Kaza takes one past the Rohtang pass (3970m) and Kunzum La (4551m). From Rohtang, the road descends in to the Lahaul valley to Gramphu, from where the road forks towards Kunzum and Kaza. Till Batal, the road continues through the rugged Chandra river valley. On the way, are great panoramic views of the Bara Shigri glacier, one of the biggest in the Himalayas.

  • Day 3 - Acclimatize around Kaza.

    Soak in a bit of Spitian culture with a visit to the ancient monasteries in Dhankar and Tabo. As the evening sets, we will drive to Kibber which is the highest village in the world which can be accessed by road and visit the ancient monastery at Kibber. We will camp for the night in Kibber.

  • Day 4 - Kibber - Dhumle (4260m) 2 hrs.

    The trail now turns into a steep climb to take us to the next camp on a meadow at Thaltak.

    Trekking along that trail was very though for me but at the same time its elegant and rewarding. Be prepared to start your trekking expedition because some points are really complex and makes it difficult to hike upon. Enjoy the weather!!!

    Our drive in Rohtang pass and Kunzum La was very thrilling one. On our way we saw great panoramic views of the Bara Shigri glacier, one of the biggest in the Himalayas. Awesome experience in my opinion.

    I was slightly disappointed by the lack of connectivity problem but rest was just fine. We had some really memorable time with our friends in camps, bonfire dinner was really nice. There is a beautiful lake called Tso Moriri, i will recommend you to see the beautiful place.
