Sky High Treks and Tours
My Trek in Ladakh with Sky High Treks
By Celine Gandar   
My 8 friends and I, did a marvellous trek in Ladakh last summer. I knew about Sky High Treks from my father's friend who met Tsering some years ago and did trek with him also. He has heartily recommended him to me.

From our arrival at the airport until our departure Tsering had everything organized for us. He brought us to a beautiful and welcoming guesthouse where we spent two still and quiet days in order to get used to the high altitude. On the third day Tsering proposed a 3-hour walk to practice a bit.

Then we were ready for the trek. I had already planned to do the Lamayuru-Chiling trek and Tsering organized it for us. We paid Tsering once and the whole trek days were inclued. Then we didn't need to bother with more expending. Tsering even made a special price for us, because we are students!

The first day was to go to Lamayuru by jeep and we stop several time during the journey to see some beautiful monastery.

From the second to the sixth day, we did trekking. All was very well organized. We had 5 double tents which were already raised each time we arrived at the camping place because the donkeys and their "drivers" would overtake us during the day so they could install the camp before our arrival.

I had never eaten so good food here, a wide variety and plentiful, and most of all: not so spicy! After 4 weeks in middle India, we were very happy about that. One evening, the cook even made a pizza for us! Eating a pizza at 4000m lost in the middle of the Zanskar mountains, incredible isn't it! But of course we could also taste delicious local meals!

For the last camping night, the guides invited us in their tent and we sang many happy songs, Ladakhi songs as well as Swiss songs. Very nice and friendly moment! I loved it!

All these memories and many other do that I really enjoyed this trek adventure! The trek Tsering organized for us was quite fantastic!
