There's lot of changes that happened to the classic Zanskar trek, which either use to be for twenty days (Starting-Lamayuru to Darcha or the vice versa) or the classic ten days trek that use to finish in Padum or Begin in Padum either towards Lamayuru. This change had happened due to construction of road of proposed all weather roads. In the current scenario, the below described itinerary still has most beautiful part which has almost all the passes of the Zanskar trek and yet we are finishing our trek at Hanupatta, where the road has reached now. Our trek starts from Pishu and then eventually headed towards westerly direction, crossing the some incredibly beautifully passes yet very challenging ones. We cross immensely beautiful Lingshed and Photoksar village which are two largest village on this route. On conclusion of trek we drive back to Leh and from where we drive to Delhi via … Manali. But for those whom the time is premium, we could fly directly back to Delhi.


Highlights: Remote and challenging trek, beautiful oasis like villages, the incredible drive between Leh and Manali.
