Sky High Treks and Tours
Kanji to Phanjilla via Askuta Gorge (8 days)
This trek is one of several in the western part of Ladakh that takes in the rugged and spectacular landscape this part of the region has to offer.

Beginning at the small village of Kanji the trail ascends directly to cross Yokma La (4700 m) and then descends steeply to cross a river before ascending again to Nyigutse La (5000 m) and dropping again to cross the Hanupata River in a beautiful valley with barley fields and huge rock faces rising into the sky.

Crossing Sirsa La (4800 m) the trail descends to the small village of Photoksar and follows the stream down through the spectacular Askuta Gorge to finish at Phanjilla.
