Kanji La Pass At 5150 Metres
lamayuru and rangdum monastries
The trek trails through remote gorges and over high passes. A trek that will take the intrepid trekker from the moonscapes of Lamayuru (3430m) to Rangdum (3980m). Lamayuru is a small village in Ladakh, on the Srinagar-Leh highway. Its claim to fame is the Moonlike landscapes which provides a stunning view to any traveller. A unique feature of this trek is the two famous monasteries situated at both the ends of this route. Perched atop an upcast landmass, the Lamayuru monastery offers a beautiful view of the Indus River that drains the valley. Rangdum on the other side of the trail is located in an isolate region of the Suru Valley. Its chief attraction is the 18th century monastery atop a central hillock, surrounded by vast meadows, running streams, colourful hills and glacier coated rocky mountains. The monastery stands guarded at the crossroads of the three valleys of Zanskar, Pir Panjal and Kargil flowing to meet at Rangdum.
