Destinations covered: New Delhi | Srinagar | Kargil | Zoji La | Padum | Pensi La | Karsha | Hanuma La | Lingshed | Singi La | Photoksar | Ursi | Leh | Photoksar | Singela | Lingshed | Parfi La

This is an isolated region south of Ladakh, comprises the two main valleys along the river Stod -originating from Pensi la in the west and river Lunak -originating from Shingo la area in the east. Both valleys converge at Padam to form the river Zanskar that flows through deep gorges to meet the Indus near Nimu. Padam-Kanji trek is one of the most popular treks in Zanskar, crossing a number of high passes of around 5000 m.


Destinations covered: New Delhi | Leh | Spituk | Yurutse | Markha, Hemis National Park | Hankar | Nimaling | Chuskarmo | Shang Sumdo | Skiu | Rumbak | Gandala | Chalak | Markha 1 | Markha Village | Hankar Village | Thachutse | Kang Yatse | Calicut | Chakori | Chogdo

This valley, running parallel to Indus Valley & Stok range, is a contrast of dry barrenhigher slopes with deep reddish hue, and green of dense under growth of thorny shrubs & willow trees. This trek also offers several climbing opportunities around Nimaling, to not so technically difficult peaks.


Destinations covered: New Delhi | Leh | Nimmoo | Nerak | Shigrilla | Chilling Tso

Remote valley of Zanskarremains completely isolated for seven months when the mountain passes are blocked with deep snow. Winter temperatures of  -30c are common here, making it one of the coldest inhabited places in the world. In the middle of this extreme winter temperature - from Mid January to Early March, the surface of the mighty Zanskar river also gets frozen, looking like a 'white sheet' or 'Chadar' and becomes the only way leading in & out of the region. Since centuries the locals have been using this route - that is dramatically carved by the river as deep canyon with near-vertical rock faces.

Our trek covers the most fascinating part of the mighty & spectacular gorge.


Destinations covered: Leh | Rumtse | Kyamar La | Pangunagu | Nuruchen | Rajungkaru | Kyamayuru la 1 | Kyamayuru la 2 | Tso Moriri | Korzok | Chamser Kangri | Shibuk La

Rupshu is a fascinating expanse of high altitude desert - stretching to about 15000sq km and seldom below 4500m, in the southeast part of Ladakh. It is inhabited by the Changpa Nomads who mostly move with their herds of sheep & yak and live in black yak-haircloth tents. Only a few places have permanent dwellings - at Korzok, Thugctse, Chamar & Hanle etc. Its most remarkable features are a 150sq km lake called TsoMoriri - the lowest place in this desert, the Pangpolungpa or the Rupshu Ice-Cap, and 19 peaks more than 6000m high that dot this strange desert.

A wide variety of wildlife is also visible both in land & water - Skyang (Tibetan wild ass), phya (marmots), hare etc. and migratory birds like brahmani duck, wild geese, black neck cranes etc.
