TSOMORIRI LAKE SPITI

This trek is entering more deeply the changthang plateau, following the Tsomoriri lakeside to reach Spiti which monasteries have been during a long time isolated from the rest of the world. Our route crosses the Parang La at 5400m, on the boarders of the Tibetan plateau & India, the old major route between Ladakh & Spiti. Khy gompa, on top of a rockey piton, is the biggest monastaey of the area with hundred & fifty monks from the Gelukpa School living in that huge Tibetan style monastery. Our route goes back through the Kunzum La at 4550m & further on through Manali.

From Delhi we fly over the majestic Himalayan to Leh, the capital of Ladakh located at 3500m.We spend three days there in order to well acclimatizing visiting the most famous monasteries & palaces along the Indus Vallet: Hemis, Thiksey, Shey, Rizong, Likir & Alchi. After a bus drive to Rumtse out trek starts going up the ancient salt road across the freen kiangs, after four days we reach Karzok alongside the Tsomoriri Lake: it's the late place inhabitate all round the year. Beyond that place the barren expanses of Changthang stretch out. Our route goes alongside the 45km long Tsomoriri Lake: its rare habitat attracts the barheaded lake, we have to cross the Pare Chu River, originate from the glacier that cover the northern slopes of the Parang La. We then wa;l upstream the river till the glacier, cros it & reach the top of the Parang La at 5400m. On the other side, we get slowly back to the civilization. In this area there are numerous virgin peaks. Our route ends in Khibar. We drive to Manali through the Kunzum pass, then further on the Delhi.
