Trekking in Ladakh provides a kaleidoscopic view of the frequently changing landscape. It is fascinating to see how at different parts of the trek you can encounter diverse land formations with their own peculiar vegetation. Among the Ladakh trekking packages, the Zanskar River trek offers splendid variety of scenic beauty and topography. Encounter deep gorges in one part and lush green fields in another with the mighty Zanskar river running through it all. India is a land of diversities and you can get a true feel of it in Ladakh. The beauty of Ladakh is incomparable to anywhere else that evokes a sense of awe whenever you visit. 

Do Things You’ve Never Done Before 

Ever gone hunting for fossils? Or tasted fresh cheese made by herders? Book one of our Ladakh trekking tours and try something that you’ve never tried before. A downhill trek from Hanumur la pass (4950m), brings you to a place called Snertse. It has an encampment of local herders who can supply fresh milk, curd and cheese. Going down to the riverbed, you can collect fossils and see pieces that the locals have gathered. This is an interesting place which reveals the story of the formation of the Himalayas. Fifty million years ago when the Indian plate had collided with the landmass of Asia, the Himalayas were formed. The Ladakh range consists of granite formed by the intense heat of the friction between the two tectonic plates. The Zaskar range on the other hand contains sediments from the ancient ocean floor. 

Get a Taste of History 

Discover ancient Buddhist kingdoms and monasteries and learn their fascinating histories on a Ladakh trekking trip. The ancient Buddhist kingdom of Zanskar is hidden in the western slopes of the Himalayas. Snow makes the site inaccessible for most of the year with a gorge on the frozen Zanskar river, the only point of entry. 
The Ladakh valley is home to some of the oldest monasteries in the country that have survived the ravages of time and continue to be home to monks and devotees even today. The Karsha monastery situated at an altitude of 3600m, was founded by the Gelukpa (yellow hat) order. It dates to the 10th century A.D. and has 140 resident monks. Phuktal monastery situated on limestone cliffs, has the most spectacular architecture with its main assembly hall carved out of a massive cave and monks’ houses dotted along the hillside. The monastery is built around a sacred spring which flows all year round, and even in winter when other springs have frozen over. The monastery holds an inscription to Cosma de Koros, a Hungarian historian who was one of the first Europeans to visit the Zanskar region and the first to translate Buddhist text from Tibetan to English. 

Visit the Land of the Nomads

The trek across the plateau of Chang Tang offers the chance to interact with several nomadic families. The Changpa nomads are people of Tibetan origin who had fled into Ladakh with their families and cattle. They now live in tents made of black yak hair and breed yaks, sheep and Pashmina goats from which the expensive woollen shawls are made. The nomads live in small groups with some encampments hosting as few as fifteen families. In fact, the Yuruche village near Rumbak has only one family living there. It’s fascinating to see how the nomadic people create a world for themselves out in the wild and far from any conventional comforts. The groups live in these parts between October to December and again between March to June. Meeting them and getting a glimpse into their lives gives an interesting perspective into human life that is so far removed from our own.
