Fly to Leh early in the morning and check into your stay. Spend this day getting acclimatized to Leh’s climate. Stay hydrated and don’t exert yourself much.
Spend this day getting some rest and acclimatization to the altitude. Explore Leh's vibrant city market, soak in the local culture, and visit nearby attractions. Buy any last-minute trekking necessities from Leh's excellent market. In the evening, a briefing session will be conducted to address essential mountain guidelines and schedule for the trek.
We embark on an extraordinary journey to Lato, a quaint village along the mesmerizing Manali-Leh highway. Along the drive, we witness the enthralling beauty of the barren mountains. We pass renowned landmarks like Shey Palace, Thiksey and Hemis Monastery, and the famous Druk Padma Karpo School. We reach the campsite in the afternoon and have hot piping lunch. Spend the rest of the day adapting to the new environment. The region's extreme heat, dryness, and aridity may initially feel challenging. The key is to stay hydrated.
Trail: Today marks the beginning of our thrilling trek, amidst this dry climate, yet it is a relatively short day. We embark on a moderate ascent of 600 meters, following the river's course, which is also your source of fresh water. Along the way, we playfully hop over streams, adding an element of excitement to our journey until we finally arrive at our destination for the day - the welcoming tents at Shiul Sumdo. Campsite: Enjoy the first night at Shiol Sumdo where you will find the sky lit by a thousand stars. It is exquisite!
Trail: Prepare for an exhilarating adventure as today promises to be a long yet rewarding day. With acclimatization to the harsh climate, covering the 10 km trek will be relatively easier. Milestone of the day: Our journey takes us through the magnificent Shiul Pass, the first of three high mountain passes, standing tall at 5,100 meters. Thrilling point: The 4 km ascent to the pass offers breathtaking vistas of the valley and surrounding mountain ranges, a thrilling vantage point. From the pass, we continue for another 6 km, taking approximately 3-4 hours, until we reach our campsite. Campsite: Get ready for an adventure-filled acclimatization walk after we settle in our tents. The captivating surroundings of Chaksung will leave you enthralled and longing for more!
Trail: Anticipation builds as today brings excitement after five challenging days, leading us to our destination - the base camp, where the enigmatic mountain reveals itself for the first time. Though the distance may not be significant, the terrain presents a steep ascent, making it a relatively tougher day, compared to our previous treks. However, the interplay of shadows cast by the sun and mountains offers some respite for our legs. Thrilling point: Adding to the thrill, we conquer another high mountain pass on our path called Chak Pass. Along the way, we catch glimpses of Kang Yatse I and II, popular counterparts of Dzo Jongo. Campsite: Once our camp is established, we embark on a short acclimatization walk in the evening, continuing the ritual of adapting to the altitude and surroundings.
Today is dedicated to acclimatization, as we have ascended to higher altitudes and entered a distinct terrain. We will distribute essential technical equipment and gear needed for the upcoming summit push. Post breakfast, we gather on a nearby slope to practice the fundamental techniques required for the climb. Roping up, ascending, and descending on the terrain are taught, ensuring everyone becomes comfortable with their technical equipment. We conclude the day early, allowing for optimal rest before embarking on our challenging nighttime ascent.
Trail: Today is the highly anticipated day for our summit push, commencing between 11 PM and 12 AM. Setting off from the camp, we traverse a flat, rocky terrain, leading us to the foot of the mountain. From there, the ascent becomes a challenging upward incline, with steep slopes ahead as we gain over 1000 meters in altitude. The combination of high altitude and icy winter winds adds an intriguing element to the climb. Milestone of the day: Enduring the frigid darkness of the night, we eagerly await the sunrise, which brings a welcomed sense of warmth and energy. The sunrise views from the top are unimaginable and the highlight of the whole trek. Campsite: After relishing the views from the summit, we carefully descend the steep slopes before the sun's rays start melting the ice. The descent is expected to take approximately 4 hours. By noon, we reach the base camp, completing this exhilarating journey surrounded by the stunning beauty of the mountains.
Trail: It’s a long day ahead of us as we take a different route toward Leh i.e. via Kongmaru La. The morning involves packing up camp and climbing the opposite side of the mountain from Nimaling. While the terrain is dry and the distance challenging, there are no dangerous sections. Thrilling Point: We ascend to Kongmaru La pass, with steep inclines and flat lands inhabited by Pikus and marmots. After 3.5 hours, we reach the pass's base, facing a half-hour ascent to the summit. Magnificent views of Kang Yatse 1, Kang Yatse 2, and Dzo Jongo await. Campsite: Descending, we traverse a narrow trail, taking around 3.5 hours to reach Chokdo before the 3-hour drive to Leh. By late evening, we expect to arrive in Leh, concluding this incredible journey through the captivating landscapes of Dzo Jongo.
After breakfast, you can check out of our hotel rooms. If you wish to stay back, you can explore the town at your leisure.
