Sky High Treks and Tours
Chilling to Juktak via Kharnak Valley (13 days)
Starting from the picturesque village of Chiling in the lower Zanskar Valley, the trail follows the river to the confluence of the Kharnak Chu with the Zanskar river the Tilat Do.

From there the trail follows the Kharnak Chu through the uninhabited valley to its headwaters. The upper reaches include some nomad settlements where the herders reside in winter, but during the summer these are deserted while the nomads tend their sheep and goats and yaks in the high summer pastures.

Crossing Yar La (4950 m) the trail descends to Lungmoche in the upper reaches of the Zara Chu before ascending gradually to Bong La (4400 m) and then Morang La (5135 m) and descending to the Tsarab Chu at Tsomitsik where it follows the river upstream to finish at Juktak.
