The best thing was that we were able to walk through and experience Ladakh, Zanskar and Changthang in one trip
Majid Al-Khalil (UK) | Ladakh Sky Trail, India
Our Ladakh Sky Trail is a unique trek designed by us to help you experience the best of the three areas of this region of northern India: Ladakh, Zanskar and Changthang/ Rupshu.
Our Ladakh Sky Trail GHT trek in August/ Septmeber 2017 is now guaranteed to run, please get in touch soon with us soon if you would like to join this group.
This is a challenging Trans Himalayan traverse of Ladakh and most of the trails are rarely trekked by other groups. On this trek we cross six mountain passes over 5,000m which link landscapes aptly described as a geologically wonderland. Stunning white washed monasteries & Buddhist villages mark our route.
Ladakh Sky Trail GHT follows footpaths used for centuries from the sacred monastery at Lamayuru to the heart of the Zanskar valley and on to the desolate Rupshu region and Changthang plains. From Zangla village we walk along the old salt route where the people of Zanskar used to take yak products and barley over to Tshokar Lake to exchange for salt.
You will end your journey at the beautiful blue lake of Tsomoriri Lake located on the Changthang plateau at 4,500m. Tsomoriri Lake is known for its unique landscape, nomads and the lakes. While on this trek you will see nomads and observe their traditional lifestyle. The area is also an important wildlife sanctuary, harbouring snow leopards and wild asses, as well as various species of birds, such as the black necked crane.
