This trek traverses the heart of Ladakh, focusing on the rugged and remote valleys and ranges south of the Indus Valley. This is a region of intense contrasts, of colourful mountains scored by deep gorges, where villages sit among islands of green that are the neatly cultivated plots of subsistence agriculture in a harsh and unforgiving land. The village gompas, steeped in Buddhist tradition, house priceless antiquities and are an important spiritual focus for the local people. Our trek through this intriguing region also takes us over three high passes, from where in clear weather, the views stretch forever.
