Zanskar Circuit

 

Overview

     The Darcha-Padum trek over Shingo-la (5050 M) has been one of the most popular treks in Zanskar for over 30 years. Recent road developments have cut short the length of the original trail. This trek combines this ancient route, with the wilderness of the trekking trail over Phitse-la (5250 M), which only a few trekkers cross each year, while avoiding the recent road developments. During the first part of the trek besides the thrill of crossing a 5000M pass in Shingo la one would witness the Gomburanjan, a huge rock peak, that is revered by the locals. One will get a good understanding of the Zanskari way of life as one walks along the various villages along the Kurgiak Chu (from Kurgiakh to Purne), which joins the Tsarap Chu. The trip to Phuktal gompa, a honeycomb like monastery, right in the middle of the multi-hued mountains surrounding it is a sight to behold. This will leave an indelible impression in your memories. We then then retrace our paths a bit till we reach the Kargyak valley before entering a secluded valley enclosed by high ridges and hanging glaciers which are characteristic of the Zanskar Range. The views of the hanging glaciers and Zanskar range from Phitse La (5250 M) are a just reward for the tiring ascent across snowfields and scree slopes. The descent, where one will meet several yak herders, follows the course of a stream till we reach the Lingti plains. The trail from the Lingti plains to Keylong sarai, though long, is fairly plain and an easy walk after the exertions of the previous week
