• Summary of Padum - Lamayuru Trek

    Max Altitude: 5090 Mts.
    Best Time: June - Sep
    Difficulty: Tough

    Unlike trekking in Kashmir, the trekking in Ladakh involves a lot of journey and comprises a significant number of days. The trek from Padum to Lamayuru via Singge La is one such lengthy trek . The long walking through the passes and valleys in the trek doesn’t seem physically taxing and the memory of this long trek stays in a trekker’s mind for a long period of time in future. The trek from Padum to Lamayuru via Singge La is a wonderful one and the region of Padum has a historical importance. The Buddhist kingdom in Zanskar region comprises of two prime valleys; Stod valley located in the northwest and Tsarap valley located at the southeast. The valley at the south east converges to Padam from where this trek starts of.

    Lovely high meadow camp sites and dry desert land, high passes and snow-capped peaks stunning scenery, Buddhist monasteries and picturesque villages with their irrigated fields of barley and potatoes, and fascinating encounters with the Zanskari people turn a trek in this area into an unforgettable experience.
