Trekking in Zanskar

Adventure Travel

Of all the trans-Himalayan valleys Zanskar is the most isolated valley. This kingdom which lies in the northwest Indian Himalayas is a very ancient and secluded one. Winter temperatures here can dip as low as -30 C or more, making it the one of the coldest places on earth. There are just about 10,000 occupants in the isolated villages of Zanskar. Summer trek in Zanskar would cost $ 450 and winter trek $ 700.

Trekking in the Zanskar ranges could be quiet strenuous. The deep gorge and high-rise mountains that surround Zanskar are stunning. Camping in the gorge besides a rushing stream, among aromatic shrubs and wild roses is deeply restful. The sharp zigzagging mountainous path of Zanskar will make you aware of the silence that linger around here.

There are plenty of birds and animals in the way: large hares, a skittish mouse hare, beautiful painted chakors, a few redstarts and then phias (Himalayan marmots), which are absolutely adorable. One would definitely fall in love with the wild flowers carpeting in the meadows. It is bizarre to find heady scent of wild roses here, since the landscape here is sere and rocky and hardly a blade of grass is seen, yet here there is unmistakable presence of rose garden, which are tall, wild bushes bursting with flowers.

The spectacular monasteries that we come across while trekking are surrounded by naked lunar hills. The various peaks are surrounded by dramatic landscapes. The climbs and dips past ancient fortresses, wide meadows and braided streams leave you totally exhausted. The view from the peak is spectacular: tall, snow covered peaks fall away endlessly on all sides. The Zanskar trek thus forces you to define the world silence.
