Trip Introduction

This demanding and Challenging Trek takes us to the land of Changpa nomads living in vast high plateau of Changthang. It focuses mainly on life of Nomadic people and wildlife in motion.  After 2-3 days of well acclimatizing in Leh, we drive to Rumtse (85 kms) located at the foot of Tanglang la pass (5328 m). Beginning to trek from Rumtse we cross over passes of Kyamari la, Mandalachan la and Shingbuk la before approaching to Lake Tsokar. Since this tour is taking place in the Changthang region, which has an average altitude of 4000-5000m, higher than central Ladakh and Nubra valley. In that case a long  acclimatization is must before starting of trek.

The first stage of area are relatively uninhabited, while the second phase after Tsokar upto Tsomoriri Lake the area is vast dwelt by Changpa nomads. We visit numbers of yurts along our trail and carefully witness nomadic daily life. Crossing over 3 high passes of Kyamayuri la, Kartse la and Yarlung Nyau la we arrive at Karzok phu. One of the largest nomadic settlements in the region. Occasionally chances to see wildlife such as Kyang, black naked crane, Tibetan Antelope, Himalayan Marmot and Blue Sheep. Finishing trek at Karzok we drive back to Leh via Chumathang.
