This impressive trekking tour takes you across the Tibetan high plateau, past the Tsokar Salt Lake and through traditional Summer camps of the nomads before reaching the deep blue, shimmering waters of Lake Tsomoriri.
High mountain passes, wide plains and breathtaking panoramas determine the character of this trip. We’ll meet wild donkeys, the rare black-necked cranes and huge herds of sheep and yaks. The journey under the open skies and the endless horizon are like a balsam for stress-ridden souls.
Classic camping-trekking in a grandiose setting: due to the high altitude (most mountain passes and at least one sleeping camp are well over 5.000m) good health and physical condition are required. The walking time per day is 4 to 8 hours. The maximum change in altitude to be experienced is 1.000m.
Many people avoid traveling to Ladakh (and other regions of the Himalayas) because they are afraid of the high altitude. And yes, there are only a few places in Ladakh that lie under 3.000m of altitude: here the air becomes thin and elusive. But with just a few tips all travelers, big and small alike, can learn to adjust faster and enjoy a safe stay.
You can find some tips for height acclimatization in our blog post: Breathless. Tips for height adjustment for children and adults.
If you feel like it, at the end of the trip you can also climb the Mentok Kangri II (6.210m) as an optional extra: 4 days / 2 people minimum /Price on request!

The group tour in July 2017 is organized together with Weltbewegend GmbH, the travel agency of the Alpenvereinsektion Edelweiss (Austrian Alpine Association).
After arriving in Delhi, depending on your flight, you will be transferred to another terminal or stay at the same one and just go up one floor. The flight over the Himalayas and the landing in Leh is an adventure in itself; even if you are tired after the long journey, this experience will quickly wake you up. In Leh, your guide will be waiting at the airport to take you to the guest house, where you can just relax and take it slow for a better height acclimatization. (We didn’t plan any activities on the first day, as this is absolutely necessary for the adjustment to the height!) Overnight stay in Leh. BF,-,-
We start the day early with a short drive to Thikse, where we will attend the daily morning puja. We’ll stay in Thikse for breakfast, and afterwards go to Hemis, where there’s a hidden monastery, one of Ladakh’s richest cloisters. We will have time enough to explore this historical religious building. Then we put our hiking shoes on, because we’ll be walking up to the centuries-old meditation cave of Hemis Gotsang, where many wise men have meditated in their search for enlightenment (walking time: about 3 to 4 hours). In the late afternoon we will bring you back to the already familiar hotel in Leh. Overnight stay in Leh. BF,L,-
