All about the Rangdum to Lamayuru Trek.

The trek from Rangdum to Lamayuru follows the most offbeat trail in Ladakh, rendering it ideal for those who wish to avoid the beaten tracks. The trek plunges into the remotest valleys of Ladakh, and through three different mountain passes. Rangdum is a beautiful high altitude plateau that lies in one of the most isolated areas of Suru Valley, almost right between Kargil and Padum.
