Talk about trekking in the corners of the world or shall we say talk about another world! This is what this remote trek is all about. Get set to be transported to a world of barren mountains with snow clad peaks, vast arid landscapes, expansive azure blue lakes and ancient monasteries dramatically perched high on top of cliffs. This landscape was inaccessible until not so long back due to its proximity to Tibet.
This remote trail follows the traditional trade route taken by the people of Spiti, Changthang and Tibet. It starts from the high altitude meadows of Kibber then leads into the Kibber gorges and from here the trail climbs to Parang La (5490m). Uninterrupted views on all sides from the pass is a big attraction on this trip. This high altitude pass is the source of the Pare Chu river. The landscape changes drastically on the other side of the pass as we hit the Changthang plateu, a land of high arid plains, snow capped peaks and beautiful lakes of Tso Moriri & Tso Kar. These plains are only inhabited for a few months every summer by the hardy Tibetan Changpa nomads and their herds of yaks and pashmina goats. The region is also home to rare wild animals such as wolf and kiang (wild ass)

The trek ends at Korzok, a permanent settlement of the Changpas on the banks of Tso Moriri. Tso Moriri Lake is at an altitude of over 4000 m, it is 28 kms long and about 8 kms at its widest. The view of the lake with Lungser Kangri (6666 m) in the background is unforgettable. From Korzok an enjoyable drive will get us to the town of Leh, capital of Ladakh region

This trek is for experienced trekkers as it involves crossing a high Himalayan pass and previous experience of camping at around 4500 -5000m will help


  • Crossing a 5000m+ Himalayan pass
  • Walking a remote trail with contrasting landscapes of valleys on either side of the pass
