We’d love to show you the most beautiful face of Zanskar: visit remote villages, fascinating monasteries and meet friendly Zanskari.
The drive to remote Zanskar is long and exhaustig, the roads are not the best, but we will persevere – for we will be rewarded! Once we arrive in Zanskar, we change into our hiking boots and explore remote villages and hamlets. There is always enough time for small talk with peasant women, shepherds and monks or for the occasional joke with young boys and their running noses.
The probably greatest highlight will be the monastery Phuktal built into a cliff (see header photo).
Check out our blog about our ten most interesting places in Zanskar. Most of them are covered with this tour.
