Lamayuru Padum Trek

Nestled in the Trans Himalayan ranges there is a fascinatingly rugged land, offering immense adventure, which was once dominated by the kingdom of Zanskar and even now can only be visited on foot. The area is still quite remote and is secluded between Indus valley and Himalayas and hence gives the trekkers an opportunity to take the pleasure of wandering through some of the most isolated regions of the world. However even in this remoteness the traditional hues of Ladakh still reflects from the ancient monasteries, Stupas and Gompas, which are still found in abundance, some in ruins and some still retaining their rich architectural works. The Lamayuru Padum trek starts from the famous monastery of Lamayuru, which is one of the oldest in the region. Other characteristic of this trek include lovely high meadow camp sites on the cold and dry desert land, the thrill of passing through high passes and the joy of espying snowcapped peaks amidst stunning scenery. Not to forget the Buddhist monasteries and picturesque villages replete with irrigated fields of barley and potatoes. Even chance encounters with the people of Zanskar make this journey a memorable one.
