TREKKING IN LADAKH AND ZANSKAR

TREKKING IN THE ARID, extremely cold trans- Himalayan desert of Ladakh and Zanskar, very often at altitudes that exceed 5,000 m (16,404 ft), can be a uniquely exhilarating experience. The terrain, as starkly beautiful as any highland setting in the world, has a number of trails, many of which trace ancient trading routes to Central Asia. They lead past spectacularly located monasteries, remote passes, sometimes staggeringly high, deep river gorges and lush meadows scattered with mani walls and chortens. The best time to trek is between June and September, when the land is not snowbound and the terraced fields are being harvested.
