DAY 06: MANALI - SARCHU {ALT. 14,600FT / 4450M} (09 HRS)
After an early breakfast, we depart for Jispa in Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh via Rohtang Pass. Soon after leaving Manali, the road snakes upwards on a spiral that does not stop till you reach Rohtang Pass at 3978m (13000ft). After Rohtang, the terrain changes dramatically becoming more rugged and rocky. The road passes through some gorgeous scenery with mountains looming large on both sides. Crossing the Chandra River at Koksar we drive past Tandi, the meeting point of Chandra and Bhaga Rivers. Later we cross Keylong, the district Headquarters of Lahaul and arrive at the beautifully located Jispa. After a quick lunch at Jispa, we drive ahead. After Jispa, the road goes on past the checkpoint at Darcha and then the climb to Baralacha La Pass (Alt.16, 000ft/4878m) begins. The majestic views on all sides continue to mesmerise us and there’s not a moment of boredom. We arrive at Sarchu at 4am approx & check into the beautifully located campsite at Sarchu. The straight stretch of road and the flat valley hides the fact that we are at such high altitude. Some of you at this stage might begin to feel the effects of high altitude sickness (AMS). Rest at the campsite. Those feeling fine may indulge in walks in the region. Tonight you will stay in a permanent camp site (pitched for 5 months of the year) in 2-man tents with cots in them and common toilet tents. Overnight at Sarchu campsite.

DAY 07: SARCHU – LEH (235 KMS, 09 HRS)
An early morning start is required as the tour departs for Leh. We cross the Himachal border soon after Sarchu and enter Ladakh. By now the terrain is stark and desolate and quite unforgiving, with not a human habitation to be seen anywhere. We are now passing some of the remotest areas in the Indian Himalayas. The road soon takes 21 hairpin bends as it rises steeply by another 3500ft (1000m approx) to the 5000m high (16,400ft) Lachlung La pass through one ridge of the Zanskar range. Thereafter, we reach a plateau called the Morey plains where for over 40 kms the road shoots ahead like an arrow at an average elevation of 15,000ft (4700m). The only human’s sights are stray groups of the nomadic Changpa yak herders with their yaks! The feeling of being in another world is all pervading. For all that matters we could be on the moon! Crossing the highest pass on this road and the 2nd highest motor-able pass in the world Tanglang la Pass at 5325m (17466ft), the road works its way down reaching Rumtse. It’s a pleasant drive from now on past scenic villages and long awaited greenery. Another two hrs and we are in Leh. Expected time of arrival: 4pm. Upon arrival check into the hotel. Overnight stay at Leh

DAY 08: LEH
After breakfast full day tour of Stok, Matho, Stakna & Hmeis monastery. Overnight at Hotel. Stok, 14 kms southeast of Leh, is a place, where the present day royal family resides. The three days trek from Stok to Spituk and the 8 days trek of Markha Valley starts from here. King Tsespal Tondup Namgyal built Stok palace & Museum in the year 1825, after Zorawar Singh's annexation of Ladakh. The royal family resides here since Ladakh lost to Zorawar Singh. At present the palace has a collection of royal dresses, old Thankas, King's crown etc. that is open for visitors. Gurphuk Gonpa, a branch of Spituk Monastery is a little away from the palace, which is famous for its festival "Guru Tsechu" held on the 9th and 10th of the 1st month of Tibetan Calendar. Matho Gonpa, around 26km. south east of Leh is the only Gonpa, which belongs to the Saskya order and Lama Tungpa Dorjay founded it in the 16th century and the Gonpa was named Thupstan-Sharling Choskor. In order to introduce the Monastic community, the king offered religious estate in neighbouring villages and the Nag-Rang festival was started, which is held on 14th and 15th day of the Tibetan calendar. Stakna (Tiger's nose); 25km. south of Leh, is a small monastery comprising of few Dukhangs, which was founded during the reign of king Jamyang Namgyal, in 1580, by saint Chosje Jamyang Palkhar. The most important statue in the monastery is said to be of Arya Avaloketesvara. The monasteries like the one in Sani, Bardan and Stakrimo, in Zangskar are branches of this monastery. The Hemis Monastery is around 45 km. south of Leh, which is one of the largest and most famous monasteries, belonging to the Drukpa order. The monastery founded by the first incarnation Stagsang Raspa Nawang Gyatso in 1630, who was invited to Ladakh by a king Singey Namgail, and offered him a religious estate throughout the region. The youngest son, Nawang Namgail, became a monk and his name was changed to Zamling Drags. The Monastery was named Changchub Samling and the community was introduced. The Hemis festival is held in the month of June.

DAY 09: LEH – SPITUK – PHYANG

The Spituk Gonpa "Exemplary"; 7km. to southwest of Leh, was founded by Od-Ide, in the 11th century AD; when the monastic community was introduced. Meanwhile, Lotsava Rinchen Zangpo (the great translator) visited this monastery. In those days the Gonpa belonged to the Kadampa School but Gelukpa order was introduced during the reign of king Drag spa Bum-Lde, when Lama Lhawang Lotus restored the monastery. The "Spituk Gustor" takes place in the courtyard of the monastery, on the 18th and 19th of the 11th month of Tibetan Calendar. Phyang Monastery, 17km. west of Leh is remarkably built on the hilltop, similar to the Likir monastery. This monastery belongs to the Degungpa Order. It was the first monastery, which introduced the Degungpa teaching of 'Skyob Jigsten Gonbo' in Ladakh that was founded by Chosje Danma Kunga, during the reign of King Jamyang Namgyal in the 16th Century A.D.

The ruins can be seen further above the present Shey Palace. There are hundreds of Chortens (stupas) and Dresthang Gonpa built around the palace, which are under the Thiksey Monastery. King Deldan Namgyal built Shey Palace in the beginning of the 17th century AD. The main image in the monastery is the three-storey statue of Buddha Shakyamuni, made of copper guilt, which was made by Deldan Namgyal in the memory of his father Singay Namgyal. The statue is the only of its kind in the region. Dresthang Gonpa near the palace was built during the reign of King Singay Namgyal, with a three-storey statue of Buddha. "Shey Srubla" festival is also held here at Dresthung Gonpa. The Rock-carved statue of five Buddha can be seen below the palace on the roadside, which was probably carved during the reign of Singay Namgyal. Thiskey Gonpa, 17kms. South of Leh the most beautiful of all the Monasteries in Ladakh belongs to the Gelukspa order. The Gonpa was first built at Stakmo by Sherab Zangpo. Later the nephew of Sherab Zangpo, Paldan Sherab, founded the Thiskey Gonpa on a hilltop to the north of Indus River. The Thiskey festival (Thiskey Gustor) is held in the month of October- November.

DAY 11: LEH- SPITUK TO ZINGCHEN 3700 M TREK (4-5 HOURS)
Our walk begins along an old jeep road on very dry and exposed land, so water and protection against the sun are important! After 3 hours the landscape becomes greener as we go into the Zingchen Valley, where the Rumbak River flows into the Indus. Our camp is in the small village of Zingchen, which means 'big field', where there are just two houses. The rest of the day will be spent enjoying the view and maybe even a dip in the river.
