About Spituk-Stok Trek

A part of the unexplored Markha Valley Trek in the Ladakh region, the Spituk Stok Trek is one of the most beautiful and easy treks in Ladakh that cuts across the stunning Stok La at 4900 meters. It is where one can enjoy the panoramic view of the legendary Indus valley, en route the hidden Rumbak village. The ramp to Stok La also encourages trekkers to mull over the history of Ladakh by offering access to Stok Palace museum that displays a chronicle history of several Ladakhi rulers.

The Spituk Stok Trek is a niche journey for travellers seeking a pleasure hike. Following a contrasting landscape, where the barren hills slowly mix with greenery moving into the Zingchen valley and cut by the River Rumbak, the trail truly intends to get a flavour of Ladakh even being low on time.

Set in the midst of snowcapped mountains, the Rumbak village that lies in the route of the strenuous Stok Kangri Trek showcases the colourful and wild nature dotted with flora and fauna. Walking and exploring the ambiance is more than a treasure hunt rewarded by the sights of Blue Sheep, Argali and if Lucky then Tibetan Wolf and if Fortunate then Snow Leopard. Nonetheless Rumbak is also an abode of various migratory birds and thus offering some serious birding.
