This journey starts after a drive to Rumtse around 70 kms from Leh near the Gya village, which was seat of power of the Head of Ladakh Gazpacho in the 10th century AD. It crosses three passes before Tsokar Lake and another three passes after Tsokar the salt Lake. While trekking in this area, you can visit birds, wild animals and Changpa nomades grazing their herds of goats at the mountains and high passes.
The mid point of the trek is Tsomoriri Lake or Korzok, the head quarter of Nomadic people. Explore Tsomoriri Lake for a day and trek further to Kibber via Parang La.
This is a unique trek across the Rupshu region in south east Ladakh- it is a starkly beautiful region of high-altitude arid plains, gentle mountain ranges and salt-water lakes, such as Tso Kar and Tso Moriri, with the only inhabitants being pastoral nomads. We will spend seven days crossing this region while going over a number of high passes before reaching the salt-water lake of Tso Moriri.
The combination of a cultural exploration of the rich Buddhist culture of Ladakh and a challenging trek in the high desert plateau makes this a distinctive Himalayan journey.
