Itinerary

Day 1: Drive Leh to Tia, trek Tia to Tia Dok, 3 hours

Car drive from Leh to Tia which can take more than one day to enjoy the monasteries like Spituk, Phiyag, Basgo, Likir, Alchi, Rizongon. Tingmosgang, a beautiful village below Tia is worth visiting the place as it has one nunnery and two monasteries. The trek begins below the bridge on the right side of the PhachaTokpo River at an altitude of 3,445 meters.

After crossing the last house one will come across a huge train wheel and should continue upwards towards Tia Dok, which previously used to be summer village and now, all it has is empty small huts and vast fields. For more than 5 years, the fields have not been cultivated. There are perfect camping spots on heights of 4000 meter on a simple patch of grass with small rivers around it. Get your camping tents ready here.

Day 2: Trek from Tia Dok to DakshangLhartse, 7 hours.

One must follow the river on the east side while moving towards the north and the path which must be followed goes directly upwards. Due to lack of camping spots afterward, it is advisable to camp here as to curb the difficulties faced due to altitude. On reaching 5,000 meters there are two beautiful lakes which have camping spots in between them.

Day 3: Trek DakshangLhartse over Zamjunmo-la to Base Camp, 7 hours.

While trekking higher towards North, the zealous traveler will come across two more lakes at 5,100 meters which offers breathtaking scenery. Totally surrounded by huge rocks and the amazing lakes along with the mighty peaks, the eye-catching beauty will blow your mind. Some glaciers can be found very close by but in order to cross the last hundred meters of an altitude of steep loose rocks, a person needs Schweindelfreiheit and Trittsicherheit.

However, a person on a horse has to be very careful while crossing this area due to stone falls and small landslides and it is wise to travel down on the North side where there is a Glacier field without any cracks. But soon it becomes easier to venture through. Now you find the first camping possibility is at 5,030 meters but one can walk further as there are more possibilities in every half walking hour.

Day 4: Trek Camp to Spangmarmo, 5-6 hours.

Follow the Spangmarmo river sometimes on the west and sometimes on the east of the valley. Throughout, it is a clear path with diversities like grass and rocky flats. During late August crossing, the river can be done easily without wading through it. While crossing the river, the trekker will enjoy glimpses of the other villages. This includes rare wildlife which can be found at your resting spot in Spangmarmo.

Day 5: Trek Spangmarmo to YokmaLhargyab, 5 hours.

Head towards the west side of the river and the enthusiastic trekker can spot a village with approximately 20 houses in it which is named Yokma. There is also a primary school and a small gompa room. One must be careful about the way leading downwards to the bridge at the entrance of the village as it is full of complications and hurdles. Now comes the second Bridge which and you across another river. Camping possibility is there immediately before the village of Yokma at 3,940 meters.

Day 6: Trek from YokmaLhargyab to Parchatang, 3 hours.

Get ready to be surprised in the village of YokmaLhargyab. It is one of the rare Ladakhi places where Buddhist families keep chicken and the middle school consists of only 11 children. There resides a bunch of happy people who enjoy interacting with travelers in English.

The trek ends along a gorge which leads towards the Muslim village of 3,500 meters of altitude. It is a small diverse village and beyond this, there comes a very deep and steep gorge by a bridge which reaches to the non-tarred road of 7 kilometers

Day 7: The Final Day

One shall now drive back 150 km via Khardong-la to Leh or simply spent time discovering the alluring creations of at the valley.
