A spectacular trek in the Trans-Himalaya of Ladakh with visits to Lakes Tso Kar and Tsomoriri. This is a great trek for first time trekkers. We begin with acclimatizing for a couple of days in the culturally rich Indus valley, then to trek into the Rupshu range and make a traverse of three 5000 meter passes as we visit with the fascinating Changpa nomads and their yaks, see the brackish lakes of eastern Ladakh, and all with great food and sound guidance. A well-rounded Himalayan experience complete with indigenous culture, trekking and all the amenities to keep you at your best. Join us.
Leadership. Heather Chrystie will be leading this trip working alongside the Himalaya Alpine Guides team of top notch local guides and staff.
Cost Effective. Full Service. We will trek with horse support.
Spectacular Tso Kar lake. This lake was the source for salt for locals for centuries from as far as 200 miles away.
Trust. Trekking at 5000 meters is no place to be short on resources. We make the proper advance preparations to ensure that our team will be properly cared for, from airport to summit to airport.
