Enjoy the day at Manali, shopping or site seeing nearby. Make sure to get all your trekking
equipment’s today.

Day 1: Reporting at Manali

The first day of the trek begins with a drive down to Udaipur via the Rohtang Pass situated
at an altitude of 3950m above mean sea level. Enjoy the lushness of the valleys painted
green in Manali before the landscape turns arid and rocky when we reach the Lahoul valley.
Further drive down the Chandra river to reach Tandi and from there further down to reach
Udiapur by late evening. Enjoy the night at some guesthouse.

Day 2: Drive Manali to Udaipur (2,800m)

The drive to Khanjer begins just after breakfast. Enroute we can enjoy the fields of potatoes
and several stupas. Drive down till we reach the village of Khanjer from where the actual
walk begins. Following the ups and downs of our trail, we tred along the beautiful valley
filled with bright flowers full of nectare to reach the top of a ridge marked by a Stupa.
Crossing the lush meadows and the mighty rivers to reach our campsite in Khanjer.

Day 3: Drive from Udaipur – Khanjer (3,685m)

The morning begins with a climb through meadows crossing several streams. As we move
further into the valley, the lush greenness gives way to barren lands. Continue trekking till
we reach Alyas and camp for the night under the pitch dark sky.

Day 4: Gumba Nala -  Phalpu /Alyas (3,985m)

A day to rejuvenate our tired body and souls.

Day 5: Rest day

The most treacherous part of our trek begins today. We start early as the progress would be
slow. Crossing the freezing rivers, we start the dangerous climb up the moraines. Be careful
of the steep slopes and the risky terrain. The climb ends at out campsite where we will rest
for the night under the night sky.

Day 6: Alyas – Camp I (4,390m)

The day starts early as we move from the moraines into the glacier fields. This is where we
have to be very careful about open crevasses. Climbing throughout the day will bring us
onto our base camp at Kang La. Enjoy the beautiful Himalayas and tuck into your warm
clothes at night as the temperatures drop quickly into the minus regions.

Day 7: Camp I – Camp II Base of Kang-la (4,870m)

Again we start early to avoid bad weather over the Kang La pass where visibility quickly
drops to zero and the threat of deep crevasses very much exists. The climb becomes more
and more tough and only a strong will power would help us conquer the pass at Kang La. A
few hours of tough climb till we reach the top of the pass and enjoy the beautiful views all

around. After some rest, we begin our climb down to reach our 3 rd camp site near the Tema
river.

Day 8: Camp II – Kang-la Pass (5,450m) – Camp III (4,410m)

After a proper night sleep, we start following the Tema river downhill. Enjoy the beautiful
meadows of wild flowers before the landscape turns into arid and desolate in Zanskar
valley. Continue trekking to reach the rough road that leads to Bardan Gompa where we will
set up for the night in camps.

Day 9: Camp III – Bardan Gompa (3,670m)

Drive back to Leh. Enroute enjoy the beautiful and historic Kargil Valley. On reaching Leh,
check into a proper hotel for the night.

Day 10: Bardan Gompa – Leh via Kargil
