Highlights

  • The trek traces one of the most offbeat trails in Ladakh and offers you the kind of solitude, respite, and peace you need.
  • Be privy to the beautiful blend of Buddhist and Tibetan cultures that is exclusive to Ladakhi villages.
  • Traverse the remote but beautiful parts of Suru valley, carrying a backdrop of stunning glaciers and mountains.

Overview

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. Fenced by magnificent hills and glaciers, the elliptical plateau is the origin point of the trek. Owing to the isolation from the common regions of Ladakh, the trail is trodden by only handful trekkers, who wander here seeking out the haunting beauty of the untouched nooks of nature. Besides breathtaking beauty, you also get to visit some of the themes of ancient and beautiful Buddhist monasteries. The splendor of Ladakhi villages magnifies your experience twofold.
