Kanji La Pass at 5271 metres
Lingshed Monastery and Dibling Village
This trek is an extremely remote and challenging one, but will bring you face to face with the breathtaking Ladakh landscapes and unforgettable sceneries of Zanskar. Take up this trek only if you love solitude, nature and wilderness. It will take 4 hours to drive to the starting point of the trek, which is the Kanji Village. At a height of 3875 metres, this village is home to only a few families who survive on farming. Memorable landscapes will greet you on the way and you will cross some pretty rivers as well. Not only will you see many wild flowers, but you might also catch glimpses of Snow Leopards, Himalayan Ibex and Marmots. The serene meadows and beautiful vales on your trek will give you the break you need from your busy city life.
After having early morning tea in your tent, you have to pack your essentials and other belongings. Then, breakfast will be served in the dining tent and afterwards your guide will lead the way on the trail. You must ensure that you are carrying things like water bottle, lunch, sunglasses, and camera with you. A light backpack is enough for these as the horses will carry the heavier load. You will get rest and lunch break at noon and the trek will resume again, with the kitchen staff and horsemen leading the way. By the time you arrive at your campsite, snacks and tea or juices will be ready for your refreshment. You can spend your leisure time then at your will and enjoy dinner at 7pm. The guide will then share all timings and things to do for the next day.
The menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner can be Indian, Chinese, Tibetan, Continental, Ladakhi, or Italian.
