The village of Chumathang is located 2 km further west from the Hot Springs with a small monastery. 3 km behind Mahe Bridge on the way to Tsomoriri and Tsokar one can find several Camping grounds at the river Paldong at an altitude 4.200 m. Overnight in Camp.
Day 02: Trek Chalungdo to Doksa, 3 hrs. As this day is not too long for not sleeping in too high altitude, one can take it easy in walking uphill. First you can find a lot of little bushes, but this type of vegetation gets the rarer the higher you climb. One follows a small river and finds many opportunities for camping. We recommend one at a doksa at an altitude of 4.775 m on the right side of the valley, a beautiful place from where one can have a walk into a side-valley. Overnight in Camp.
Day 03: Trek Doksa via Lungmar-la (5390M) to Camping, 7 hrs. One has to follow the river higher and higher. The landscape becomes wider and the "real Changthang-feeling" arises. On the way to the pass the river stopps running and one has to climb up to 5.390 m on the pass Lungmar-la. From there the view is breathtaking. On the right the show-covered peaks of Chalung, Changser Kangi and Lungser Kangri rise high in the sky, far away one gets a glimpse of the lakes of Kyun Tso and towards Tibet to the forbidden parts of the Changthang for Westerners. The downhill is quite steep in loose sand so the other way round wouldn't be a nice option. But from this side it is fun to sometimes jump down towards a small gorge. In the upper part of it, at 4.820 m, is the only place with some water, which can be used as a camping ground. So don't walk too far! Overnight in Camp.
Day 04: Trek Camping to Niddar, 4 hrs. Today is an easy, but beautiful walk down, sometimes in the gorge, sometimes on the plateau left to it. At the bottom at 4.390 m one meets the big valley and can see a rough road on the opposite side. But up to the small village of Tsongkar Karu on 4.265 m it is better to stay on the left side. Tsongkar Karu has 16 houses and a small school. Another half hour brings us to Niddar, a slightly bigger village with a middle school and a monastery. There is a road up to Chunur (forbidden for western Tourists), but very rare that cars are going. The Camping in Niddar is on a nice meadow just before the village. Overnight in Camp.

Day 02: Trek Shepherds Place to Lago-la Base Camp, 4 hrs. Set off to the North a little up and down over moraines again along the river Saspol Tokpo. On 4.600 m you come across a dried up lake (called Zingog) which can sometimes be used as a water supply damm. 100 m of altitude higher is a small yellow lake called Tso Sermo.

You can either visit the monastery (characterization of monastery?) in the afternoon or in the morning. It is 20 min by walk from the camping
Day 02: Trek Chumathang to Gangra, 5 hrs. Set off in Chumathang, 4.050 m, walk through the village and follow up the valley north. The path is easy to find as many shepherds use this trail to go for the high pastures with their animals. You will find some of their places on their way. Also it is very likely to see some wildlife as marmots and bluesheep. As one treks up following the Chumathang river there is no scarcity of water and plenty of camping possibilities. Our choice Gangra is located at 4.630 m with a fine scenery.
Day 03: Trek Gangra to Sumdo, 4 hrs. Today is just a short walking-day, but you won't regret it as the camping is set in such a fine scenery, that one has enough time to explore it or just relax in the sun. The trail leads still along the Chumathang river from 4.630 m up to 5.140 m. Sumdo, the goal of the day, is a junction of three valleys. As oxygen is getting less, one has to walk very slowly. But time enough to spot some of the many marmots and maybe some Kyangs. Sumdo is also a favorite place for big herds of Yak.
Day 04: Trek Sumdo over Choku-la to Phayalung, 8 hrs. As this is quite a tough day as one has to cross the 5.560 m high pass Choku-la, it is advised to start early in the morning. We climb over a ridge and follow the high valley to the east of Sumdo, reach an even higher valley and find a small and unremarkable pass without prayerflags in the very east of this valley. This is the highest point of this trekking and one has a superb view along the surrounding mountains and valley. After that it goes slowly down, plateau after plateau, each being dominated by a beautiful lake. First it is Sengnapo-Tso on 5.460 m, then xxx on 5.310 m and followed by xxx on 5.300 m. We have to climb over a ridge again to finally reach a shepherds place at 5.200 m, which is fine for a camping.
Day 05: Trek Phayalung to Yayatso, 5 hrs. While walking further down, one passes several shepherds places, walks along a refreshing river crosses a desert-plateau with a big Lhato and reaches a small lake with a gorge on the left side. Passing this gorge one gets a fine view to the big blue Yayatso with its surrounding short meadows, grazing goats and yaks and the small village of Yaya, containing of seven houses, on the east side of the high valley. Situated on 4.700 m the Yayatso is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Changthang area. Camp next to one of the several small rivers leading to Yayatso and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere with men and animals living adjusted to natures conditions.
Day 06: One could trek over another 4.800 m pass to Mahe but as there is a road, it is nicer to set off by car. On the way to Mahe visit the famous nunnery with more than 100 nuns and in Mahe the monastery. In Mahe you have the choice to go on further into Changthang area either to newly opened area of Nyoma and Muth and/or Tsomoriri/Tsokar Lakes or directly back to Leh.

Day 01: Drive to end of road, Trek Anmo to Cha, 2.5 hrs. Drive by car from Padum to the end of the road (in 2012 it was until short before Anmo). An early start gives time for sightseeing of some of the gompas on the way like Bardan and Mune. At the end of the road meet the horses and start on the left side of the river. The path leads high above the river through small villages/houses. Finish the first trekking day in the district main quarter of Cha, a bigger village on 3.900 m You can choose if you want to put up the tent or prefer one of the comfortable homestays to experience a little more the life of the villagers. (If you want, you can add a day here trekking to Phuktal with its famous Gompa and walk back to Purne, walking-time around 4 hrs. total, giving enough time to explore the monastery. The walking-time of the next day will be 1 hr less)
Day 02: Trek Cha to Tangtse, 6,5 hrs. Go down to the bridge, cross the river and climb up again. The path leads you high above the river through the villages of Yal, Testa und Kuru. It is nice and easy walking. Just before Tangtse there is again a small bridge to cross the river. Tangtse is a village on around 4.000 m with 4 x 3-4 houses close together and huge fields around. There is an empty gompa high above the village.
Day 03: Trek Tangtse to Zinchen, 4 hrs. Follow the path on the same side of the river until you reach after 1-1,5 hrs. Thabley, which consists of 2 houses. There you enter a gorge leading up into the mountains. Stay mostly on the left side, but sometimes you have to cross (when not too much water easy done by jumping). Then leave the gorge on a high path leading over ridges and back to the river at Zinchen at 4.600 m. You can either pitch your tent there or go a little higher, but there are only small spots for 2-3 tents.
Day 04: Trek Zinchen via Phitse-la to Churmik Marpo, 8-9 hrs. Get up very early as the way towards and over the pass is quite long. Just keep on following the river up to a nice place for a rest on 5.175 m at the bottom of the pass. The climb is a little steep until the top of the 5.582 m high Phirtse-la. There you have a spectacular view around. Find the proper path leading slowly downwards until you reach a broader valley called Churmik Marpo at 4.750 m. Camp there.
Day 05: Trek Churmik Marpo to Umlung, 5,5 hrs. Follow the river down on the left side. You see many marmot-holes, but rarely you spot these shy animals. Before the rivers runs into a small gorge, you have to cross it either on horseback or through the water. Continue on that side until the river flows into the bigger Lingti-River at Kham Kherab. There you have to cross again. Kham Kherab is at 4.470 m and from there it is more or less flat walking with only short ascents and descents. There are plenty camping-possibilities along the Lingti-River. We suggest to go until Umlung at 4.440 m.
Day 06: Trek Umlung to Sarchu, 4 hrs. You continue walking on the right side of the Lingti-River (in the Olizane-map there is a path on the other side, too, which is wrong). At a junction you could decide to have a long way to Killang Serai, but could continue for sure just to Sarchu. There you meet the Tsarap River, which has to be crossed and after that you reach Sarchu at 4.300 m with a lot of Dhabas, who offer food and night-shelter. Or you just continue by road either to Leh or Keylong.

✔ Highlight - People, Villages, Glacier and Lakes

Day 01: Drive Leh to Tia, Trek Tia to Tia Dok, 3 hrs. Drive by car from Leh to Tia. One can cut the drive also into more then one day as there are many interessting monasteries as Spituk, Phiyang, Basgo, Likir, Alchi and Rizong on the way. Tingmosgang, the huge village below Tia, is also worth spending a day with walking possibilities around. In Tia you can find a nunnery and two monasteries (Tia and Katsa). The Trek starts just below the bridge on the right side of the Phacha Tokpo River at an altitude of 3.445 m. After leaving the last houses one comes across a big prayer-wheel and continues upwards towards Tia Dok, a former used "summer village" with empty small huts and bare fields, not cultivated since more then 5 years. There are many pleasant camping-possibilties, the highest on 4.000 m on a patch of grass with small rivers.
Day 02: Trek Tia Dok to Dakshang Lhartse, 7 hrs. Follow the river always on the east side towards North. There is a path one has to follow, which goes steadily upwards. After reaching 4.600 m, one has to cross 2-3 times streams coming from the east, which shouldn't be a problem. When having difficulties with the altitude it is advisable to have an additional camp here as afterwards there are rare possibilities. At 5.000 m there are two beautiful lakes with camping possibilities in between.
Day 03: Trek Dakshang Lhartse over Zamjunmo-la to Base Camp, 7 hrs. Getting higher and higher to the North one comes across two more lakes at 5.100 m. The scenery is really spectacular with vast rock-areas including beautiful lakes, higher peaks and passes on three sides and some glaciers very close by. The last 100 m of alttude to the pass are quite steep over loose rocks and one needs Schwindelfreiheit und Trittsicherheit. Especially with groups and horses one has to take care of stone-falls and small landslides. Finally the pass is reached and offers great views to all sides. On the north-side is a glacier-field of around 1 km without crevasses to cross and go down. The terrain after that is first quite loose with rocks and exhausting to walk, but later it becomes better and a path more abvious. The first Camping-possibility is at 5.030 m, but one can continue a bit as there are more possibilities every half walking hour.
Day 04: Trek Camp to Spangmarmo, 5-6 hrs. Always following the Spangmarmo river, sometimes on the west-, sometimes on the east side, one gets slowly lower. The path is still clear and changes between grass, boulder-areas and rocky flats. The river-crossings can be done without wading through – at least in late August. While going down one gets glimpses into other valleys. There is a rare wildlife to spot, but quite some Yaks belonging to the people from the lower villages. So some Doksas are inhabitet by people collecting the dung as burning-material for the winter. Spangmarmo is such a Doksa. One can camp a little further away at 4.550 m.
Day 05: Trek Spangmarmo to Yokma Lhargyab, 5 hrs. Still going down on the west side of the river one can spot in the distance the village Gongma Lhargyab with approx. 20 houses. A primary school and a small gompa-room. One has to take care not to miss the way leading down to the bridge in the beginning of the village. Afterwards there is a second bridge to cross another river coming down from the mountains. Just before the village of Yokma Lhargyab is a camping-possibility at 3.940 m
Day 06: Trek Yokma Lhargyab to Parchatang, 3 hrs. First one should take the possibility to discover a bit more of Yokma Lhargyab, one of the rare ladakhi places, where buddhist families keep chicken and the middle school consist of 11 children. The quality is not so bad for a gouvernment-school as they have really good and dedicated teachers, singing with them every morning "We shall overcome"! They are happy to experience a little their english with foreigners. The last bit of this trek leads along a gorge towards the muslim village of Parchatang. Parchatang is 3.500 m of altitude and a small vivid village with lots of children. Crossing the there very deep and steep gorge by a bridge one reaches a non-tarred road of 7 km going down to meet the Nubra-Valley ar 3.100 m
Day 07: Drive back the ca. 150 km via Khardong-la to Leh or use the chance to discover more of the Nubra Valley, especially going to the most western village of Turtuk, belonging to Pakiastan until 1971 and having a balti culture there. It is a village on only 2.880 m with two crops a year (second is buckwheat), a mosque from the 16th century and a little buddhist gompa maintained by buddhist employees living in that village. Houses and people look quite different from rest of Ladakh so it is a little like glimpsing into another country. Also with the military camps and the military airport in Thoise one can experience the special situation of Ladakh lying so close to the Pakistan-border. Afterwards for sure one could visit at least the beautiful villages of Hundar and Deskit in the Nubra-Valley.
