After a night in Delhi and a flight up to Leh, after acclimatizing to the high altitude (Leh is at over 3,500 metres), with some local exploration of the monasteries and other sights
in and around the Ladakhi capital. We begin our trek from the village of Umla; on the ascent to Pulu we cross a small river where it is sometimes possible to see marmots. The Lasirmo La is reached the following day; at 5,350 metres this is the highest point on the trek - admire the amazing views across the Karakoram Range as we recover from the climb. We cross the edge of the mighty Lasirmo glacier to reach the base camp. On the way to Hundar Dok we’ll pass shepherds huts (doks) and see yaks and sheep. Probability of tasting gur-gur tea (salted butter tea) here exists for those who have a penchant for adding something exotic and queer to their culinary desires.
Hunder village marks the beginning of the Nubra valley: with views of sand dunes in the distance this feels like central Asia. The lush green of the valley centre stands in stark contrast to the arid landscape all around. We’ll spend time exploring the local monasteries at Hunder, Diskit and Sumur, and take a ride on a double humped Bactrian camel across the spectacular dunes (optional). We return to Leh passing through the remote villages and crossing the Khardung La (5,603 metres), the highest motor-able pass in the world. Before flying back to Delhi and we drive Agra to visit the beautiful and of course, the exquisite Taj Mahal.
