"In life, there's always a mountain to conquer." Pemba Jangbu Sherpa

ZANSKAR TRAVERSE

The ancient name for Kullu Manali means the end of habitable world. Though one can drive in summer from Kullu valley into Lahual & beyond, the sparsely inhabited west valley remains still quite unexplored.

Zanskar valley is one of the most isolated in the whole of India. Ringed by high mountains, it is still very difficult to approach. One access road is only open a few months a year. This long & difficult trek is perhaps the finest in the region with sceneries astonishingly wild & spectacular, with many high passes, glaciers, deeply eroded gorge & multi-coloured rock formation.

Our trek begins from Manali/Darsha, crossing the high passes, like the Shingo pass & we walk to Padum the capital, visiting several of Zanskars many monasteries & finally reaching Leh. From Leh we fly back to Delhi.
