Rumtse to Spiti (16 days)
Beginning at the village of Rumtse on the Leh-Manali road, this trek takes you through the spectacular rolling mountains of eastern Ladakh past two high altitude lakes with abundant wildlife and dramatic scenery.
The salt lake of Tso Kar is a spectacle of brilliant white salt deposits, intensely coloured sedges and small plants, deep blue skies and herds of wild kiang roaming the area. The high altitude lake of Tso Moriri is an azure-blue gem among snow-capped peaks that extend east into Tibet.

From Korzok village the trail skirts around the lake to Kyangdam at the south end of the lake where herds of wild yak graze and the source of the Zara Chu can be seen. The trail heads south through largely uninhabited areas and ascends to Parang La.
