ZANSKAR, 2008

Zanskar is a high altitude desert with deep ravines and powerful rivers located between Ladakh and Kashmir in north India. The Buddhist culture is similar to that of Ladakh. We flew to Delhi then on to Leh, the main town of Ladakh. A few days for acclimatisation to the altitude then we drove east along the Indus valley to the start of the trek near Phanjila. 11 days trekking north to south over several 4500 to 5000 metre passes and through villages to Karsha monastery, near Padum. the main town in Zanskar. The spectacular drive back to Leh took us through Kargil and back along the Indus with overnight stops at Rangdum and Mulbekh monasteries.
