• Summary of Rupshu Valley Trek

    Lying between Zanskar and the Tibetan border to the east is the region known as Rupshu, the highest and least well- known part of Ladakh. This area is physically a part of the Chang Tang plains, which extend eastwards from Rupshu for almost 1000 kilometers across Tibet. Consisting of a network of high valleys, separated by impressive ridges, with snow - capped peaks soaring to over 6000 meters, Rupshu is a rugged land inhabited by a hardy and cheerful nomadic people known as Chang-pa.

    Flying in to Leh, we will spend 3 days acclimatizing, with visits to several of the region's Buddhist monasteries, and we will also drive upto the world's highest road pass - the Khardung La (17,384 ft.). Our trek starts from Hemis, heading southwards into the heart of unspoiled Rupshu, crossing 4 high passes, 3 of them over 16,400 ft., which each afford splendid view across majestic plateau-land to distant snow peaks. Lovely high meadow campsites stunning scenery, isolated villages and fascinating encounters with the hardy Chang-pa at their black tented encampments, makes this undoubtedly one of the best trips currently on offer in Ladakh.
