Before hitting the trail across the Himalayas our trip begins with some cultural exploration. About seventeen days of walking in the heart of fabulous landscapes of immensity and harshness six high passes, spectacular monasteries with an almost medieval rhythm. Heading north from Delhi to Leh, we commence our trek from Kanji across the region over winding shepherd’s trails and caravan routes over some high and low passes, visiting remote villages and some of the region’s fascinating monasteries such as Phuktal and Lamayuru. The trail then descends past picturesque Buddhist monasteries and through the canyons of the Tsarap River to reach the deep and remote valleys of the ancient kingdom of Zanskar. This stage of the trek through remote valleys of the ancient kingdom Zanskar valley is marked by ancient monasteries and remote villages with their hardy inhabitants still practicing that ancient form of Tibetan Buddhism.
Tour traverses through two very beautiful high passes Sniguste La (5120 m) and the Phirtse La (5450 m). The end of the trail is at Serchu from where we drive to Manali via Baralacha La ( 4850 M) and with a great experience to cross the world’s longest highway Tunnel about 9.02 kms at an altitude of 3050 meters. In Manali, the vibrant hub of the Kullu valley and a major activity centre, we visit a temple, a fort and an art gallery. From Manali we stop overnight in Chandigarh – a Punjabi city known for its modernist architecture and fantasy sculptures at Nek Chand’s Rock Garden. We rest before drive back to Delhi from Chandigarh.
