After a scenic flight over the Himalayas to Leh we spend several days at Buddhist monasteries for the necessary acclimatization with sightseeing. The trek starts from Spituk village and after crossing Ganda La we reach Marka Valley. We continue to the beautiful Nimaling Plains dominated by the impressive Kang Yatze Peak. From here we cross the Kongmaru La with great views to Zanskar in the south and the Karakoram range in the north. We descend the pass through a steep canyon with amazingly colored rocks and then return to Leh.
Ladakh, also known as Little Tibet, is one of the most remarkable regions of India. Although politically part of India, Ladakh is geographically and culturally an extension of western Tibet.
