LAKES AND PEAKS TREK - TSHOKAR TO SPITI

22
days
DESCRIPTION:

Famous as one of the most rewarding treks in the area, Lakes and Peaks – Tshokar to Spiti, will take you through some of the most stunning landscapes of the Himalayas. Starting in the Changthang plateau, home to the yak-herding nomads of Ladakh, the trek will take you through a number of high altitude passes to eventually reach the crystal blue visionary lake of Tsomoriri. A stretch of the trek will be on its shores before it starts to ascend the Parang, taking you over the border between Ladakh and Himachal Pradesh to the village of Kibber in the Spiti valley. Stretching over a total of 13 days with ?? passes to cross, the journey is strenuous. Those daring enough to undertake it will surely not regret it though.

Before and after the trek, Namkha has also arranged a
brief cultural tour of the Leh and Sham valleys of Ladakh
as well as Manali valley of Himachal Pradesh. Highlights of this journey will include visiting the ancient temple complex of Alchi in the Sham valley, meeting nomads in their tents and sharing a cup of Tibetan butter tea with them, watching the sun reflect its golden colors on the surface of Tsomoriri and a magic dip in the hot springs of Vashisht in the Manali valley which is guaranteed to wash away all the aches and pains of a long and fulfilling trek! 

BEST TIME TO VISIT:

With extreme temperatures and heavy snowfall blocking the majority of roads getting in and out of Ladakh during the Winter months, the only adequate season for this trek is the Summer. In between the months of June through September, all roads are open and the weather is warm with abundant sunshine.
