TEMPLE TO TEMPLE TREK - LAMAYURU TO ALCHI

12
days
DESCRIPTION:

Famous for the monasteries it starts, passes and ends at, the ‘Temple to Temple – Lamayuru to Alchi Trek,’ is as much a cultural experience as it is a beautiful and relatively short trek. Starting by the imposing monastery of Lamayuru, the trek will take you through two passes of which the second is above 5000 meters. Although the ascent to the Tar La brings this trek to a demanding level, the rest is moderate with few ups and downs. Stretching over a total of 5 days, the trek finnally ends at the picturesque village of Alchi, home to one of the most ancient temple complex of the Tibetan Buddhist world!

Before and after the trek, Namkha has also arranged a brief cultural tour of the Leh valley. Highlights of this journey will include visiting the many fields, gardens and orchards of the lush Sham valley and contemplating the ancient temple complex of Alchi. 

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.
