All about the Rupshu Valley Trek.

One of the less crowded treks in India, Rupshu is a picturesque plateau cradled deep within the winter land of Ladakh. Flanked by the river Indus, it forms a part of the Changthang Plateau, and is home to the nomadic Changpas. Summers add an essence of ceaseless beauty to the entire region, bringing it to life. The trek starts from Tsokar Lake, and concludes at the stunning Tso Moriri. The trail weaves through a handful of passes, some of which sit staggeringly above 5,000 m! This implies that proper acclimatisation is key. Replete with magnificent lakes like Tso Moriri and Tsokar, it is not uncommon to get glimpses of the beautiful Bar Headed Geese and Black Necked Crane which inhabit the area! The trek promises you the journey of a lifetime, to which numerous neighbouring peaks play witness.

The temperature ranges anywhere between 15-20 degrees during daytime, and dips to 3-7 degrees in the night. It may dip further down to sub zero degrees at higher altitudes. Carry enough warm layers.
