Additional Information

Ladakh remains one of the best places to experience the unique culture of the High Himalaya. As well as the Tibetan culture and religion there are some fantastic trekking routes, many of them off the beaten track. Ladakh is also the best place to conquer your first 6,000m Himalayan peak and if conquering one summit isn't enough of a challenge, try two peaks and seven passes! After acclimatisation time in Leh (3,500m) we begin trekking from Mankarmo. The trail ascends spectacular gorges and crosses mountain passes to reach a high altitude plain at Nimaling.  This is inhabited by Ladakhi shepherds and their huge flocks of sheep, goats and yaks. Vatseri Peak (5,640m) is a good warm up before summiting our highest peak, Dzo Jongo East (6,189m), which offers breath taking views over the Karakorum and Indian Himalaya. This optional climb is tough but technically easy and a much quieter summit thanStok Kangri. We trek out to the roadhead via a remote pass and beautiful valley with fantastic rock formations.
