Lamayuru to Rupsho Trek has a very interesting route beginning at the famous Lamayuru monastery; you walk up the less travelled Ripchar Valley with its small villages, nomadic settlements and pastures where you see a wide variety of flowers and many species of birds from the end of July to end of August.

In this Ladakh trek we will cross from some of the high passes with excellent views of the Karakorams and the Zanskar mountains. The initial part of the trek ends at Chilling, a small village and the only one where Ladakhi metal work is carried out. From Chilling, we cross the river by a cable pulley. A different set of ponies are on the other side of the river to carry our gear. We then continue on to Markha Valley - considered one of the most beautiful valleys in Ladakh.

Here, we pass through several Ladakhi settlements and observe their lifestyle. Several river crossings are involved, but these are not dangerous. Crossing several more passes, through gorges and wide open pastures, we end the trek at Matho village. Here we visit the monastery built on a hill between Stok and Stakna, the only monastery belongs to the Sakyapa order. It is worth visiting this monastery also for the beautiful view that it offers of the valley. Another popular trek is the Parang la trek.


  • Day 1 -  - The journey would begin from Leh, where you would be leaving for Lamayuru in the morning via taxi. The path would follow along the river Indus and enters the Sham Valley. Once you have explored the Lamayuru monastery, you would be packing your backpacks and making it out for the day 1 of the adventure.You would begin by following a little stream and then making a climb for the Prinkti La pass that is around 3,700-m high. Then, you would be making it through the Shilla village (3,700 meters) before coming to Wanla at 3,250 meters where the campsite is located. Explore the area, enjoy sunbathing and check the nearest monastery.

    Wao it was a beautiful trek. tiring but easy trek, there were two peak upon which we had to trek . One of the trek was easy but other peak was bit difficult for us but all thanks to our guide who helped us along our way to complete the trek. The points Kongmaru La and Nimaling was nice place. Camping was a nice experience for me, enjoyed the bonfire dinner. It was like a long holliday of two weeks.Can't forget the spectacular views of markha valley and the monastaries as well. I am definately going to recommend this trek to everyone in my circle.

    I was very scared in the beginning, but i must tell you guys once you complete the task it feels out of the world to trek on the two peaks that also too high.. wao it was a breath taking experience for me actually. We also visited Ganda La , Zanskar and some Stok ranges.

    We got to see different animals and birds in our sightseeing adventure. Trekking was not so hard but you will need a guide to explore the places with more adventure. Personally i loved the trek between the ranges of Dzo-Jongo. It was a great feeling to trek on such high points.

    Trekking experience from Lamayuru to Rupsho was amazing for me .As we all know Lamayuru is very beautiful place and the whole journey from Lamayuru to Rupsho was incredible as the Rupsho is a nomadic area .We were trekking for about one week and we enjoyed a lot there.

    Lamayuru is situated at a height of about 3500 meters, it is the monastery which resembles a moonland. One should really visit this place for atleast one week. Last year ,we all college friends planned to go for trekking there. we enjoyed so much there.

    It was interestig to trek and discover the Markha Valley of Ladakh.The Kang Yatse point is also beautiful point which is very near to Dzo Jongo. The dark side of the trek for me was that it was a very long trek but the best part is its so beautiful place to discover. Dont forget to carry your camera.
