Overview

Book
It would be hard to surpass this challenging Trans Himalayan circuit of Ladakh. We follow ancient trails leading over high passes that link isolated Buddhist villages to the secluded Himalayan kingdom of Zanskar. Zanskar is one of the last truly remote regions in the Himalaya, where villages are cut off from the outside world for much of the year due to heavy snowfall and blocked mountain passes. Zanskar is also known for its rust coloured mountains and dramatic deep gorges - a vast, silent and truly spectacular wilderness, that leads to the whitewashed settlements of the upper Markha Valley. We cross numerous passes before we complete our circuit back through the Indus Valley and Leh, the historic capital of Ladakh. If you are in search of an all encompassing Himalayan adventure then this is the trek for you.

Full marks to all the Indian staff-it was well organised-Mayak did a great job in keeping everyone on the ball and Geet-what can I say-his cooking was just fabulous!! I was unsure how they would go with my gluten free requirements but not a problem-in fact I think I got better options than the others sometimes! Our grateful thanks for a job well done!! It was fun to have the accompaniment of the horses-they are truly amazingly sure-footed beasts with real personalities, that we came to know and like.
