Sky High Treks and Tours
|Lamayuru to Padum (8-9 days)|
This challenging trek crosses eight passes and takes you into some of the most remote parts of Ladakh.
From the village of Lamayuru with its dramatic monastery and fantastic eroded landscape, the first part of the trek takes you through the remote and little-inhabited Zanskar mountains across passes with spectacular views – especially Sirsir La, Sengge La, Kyukpa La, Morgon La and Hanamul La.
From the final pass at Parfi La the views down into the Zanskar Gorge and across to the mountains on the opposite side of the river are a reminder of the enormous forces that shaped this land and the character of the people.
The second part of the trek descends gradually to the Zanskar river and follows an easy trail across the river terraces through the wide upper valley to finish at the town of Padum.
