Start for this trek early in the morning as otherwise, you would get hot from all the heavy
walking. This trek is a short one in which you initially climb around 200 feet to reach
Pritikingi La pass. The path takes you along a beautiful stream with prayer flags all along the
track. Passing Pritikingi La, the trek starts descending, taking you across the Shillakang
stream till you reach Wanla, loosing around 1000 ft in altitude. Your first day of trek ends
here as you check in to a guest house for the night. Be sure to explore the nearby areas if you
have any energy left.
DAY ONE LAMAYURU to WANLA via PRITIKINGI LA
The trek today is little steep and at the end of which you would gain 1,800 feet. We start
early, trekking for 2 hours till we reach Panji La pass. From here we will take the left track(
the track splits at Panji La), leaving behind the Wanla river till we reach the Ripchar stream.
An hour more and you reach Hinju to camp for the night. The camping grounds here are after
the village. However, water and food is not an issue. Enjoy the cool night breeze but be
careful as the temperatures can reach into the minus.
DAY TWO TREK FROM WANLA TO HINJU
The trek today would be slightly difficult owing to the steep climbs, gaining around 3700 feet
initially, followed by the steep descends where you loose around 3300 feet. The initial climb
out from Hinju takes around 2 hrs till you reach the summer pastures. Thereafter the climb
becomes steeper till you reach the summit of Kongske La. However the climbs can be
justified by the beautiful views atop Kongske La. After enjoying the views, we start our steep
descent into Sumdha Chu, which takes around 2 hrs and 30 min. From the camp, we can see
yaks and sheep grazing above as well as the sheepdogs guarding them.
DAY THREE TREK TO SUMDHA CHENMO via KONGSKE LA
Today we start our trek south-east, crossing the streams that dot our path. Follow the course
of the stream for 45 minutes till we reach a bridge. However, don’t cross the bridge but
continue along the stream down. Stay the course which crosses around four rivers for the next
3 hrs and 30 min till we reach Sumdha Chun. This place has a beautiful Gompa worth
checking out if you are not too tired. Try to mingle with the locals who came from Nepal 200
years ago to learn the local history.
DAY FOUR TREK TO SUMDHA CHUN
The last day of our trek as well as the toughest. The initial climb to Stakspi La pass is quite
steep and difficult to navigate, taking around 4 hrs to complete. Continue the climb through
the valley to reach a campsite where we will stock up on water. The stream opens up into the
valley and from there to a band of rocks. Continue on through the rocky terrain to reach the
summit of Stakspi La at an altitude of 16,240 feet. The tough climb is rewarded by the
beautiful views atop this peak. The climb down is equally treacherous and difficult, so be
careful. Once we reach the grazing grounds below, the terrain becomes more forgiving.
Another 3 hours of walk to reach our destination Alchi where there are many good
restaurants and guest houses to regain our lost energy.
DAY FIVE TREK TO ALCHI via STAKSPI LA
Most of us trek to be free from the clutches of our monotonous routines, to seek adventure in
remote and hard to reach places of the earth. The virgin nature fills us with joy and energy,
and the very thought of undertaking these treks is an experience that very few could be said
to enjoy. These adventures fill our spirit with fulfilment. Once such trek in Ladakh could be
the trek from Lamayuru to Alchi, this trek can be considered to be a spiritual one as it starts
from the famous Lamayuru Monastry, taking you through few of the oldest monasteries in
Ladakh till you reach Alchi. This route will take you through many high passes where you
can enjoy nature at its best.
