You are
welcomed by the majestic Himalayas as you touch down at the Kushok Bakula Rinpoche
Airport. We will pick you up and from here and check you into your hotel for a day of rest.
Make sure you don’t spend much energy trekking around as you need to save it for the actual
trek the next day. Day 1 is mostly to get you acclimatised to the high altitude atmosphere.

Day 01: The day begins with your arrival in Leh, a respite from the chaotic city life.

The course would take us along the Indus river. Once in Leh, we take our first
break visiting the Likir Monastery before resuming our trek towards Chagatse. Our final stop
for the day, Yangthang is just 2 hrs away through the pass where we would rest for the day.

Day 02: The day begins quite early with our drive down to Likir, which would take roughly two hours.

The trek takes us through
streams and dense trees taking us into natures lap. Further down the trail, we reach the
Shushut pass, the highest point in our trek at 4000m. The pass is considered a viewpoint with
a clear view of the Hemis Shukpachan and its sister peaks. After enjoying the beautiful
views, we will begin our descent towards our camp at Hemis Shukpachan. The entire trek
could be covered in under 4 hours till we reach our camp and tuck in for the night.

Day 03: The first stop today would be the Rizong monastery.

day. The trek descends further down quite steeply towards Mebtak La. The path
takes you through Chortens which is what the stupas are known locally. From Mebtak La
after a short rest, we continue on to Ang, a sleepy village on the outskirts. From here we
travel further south along the dusty road to reach Tinngmosgam, our final stop for the day.
Enjoy the beautiful monasteries here as well as the sweet apples and apricots sold in the local
market. Stay arranged at any of the local guest houses.

Day 04: Today the trek takes us into flat terrain from the dense forests we transversed the previous day.

Along the way, we would visit other monasteries like the
one in Alchi known for its wall murals. Following the course of the river Indus till Khalsi and
from there further across the river towards Lamayuru. Enjoy your stroll along the Indus
which would be one of a kind till you reach Leh by evening. Stay arranged at any of the local
Guesthouses in Leh.

Day 05: We start early today, driving along landscapes dry and mesmerising at the same time towards the Lamayuru monastery.

The memories would be enough to last a lifetime. Make sure you click as
many photos as possible.

Day 06: The final day of the trek would see you reaching the airport early morning for your flight back home.

Itinerary

If you are new to trekking, there is no other trek better suited than the Sham Valley Trek. A

short trek which includes all that you can expect from more strenuous treks out there. It has

short ascends, high altitude and rocky terrain as its elements. This is the reason why this trek

is called the Baby Trek in Ladakh. A basic level of fitness will ensure you complete this four-

day trek without much difficulty but at the same time enjoying the beautiful views along the

way.

This trek covers Hemis Shukpachan, a village located in the middle of a cedar tree forest,

Khaltse, Lamayuru Monastry before taking you back to Leh. At the highest point in your trek,

you reach a maximum altitude of 13,100 ft, trekking along streams of water icy enough to

chill you to the bones. Discover ancient monasteries like the Shey, Hemis, Thiksey, Spituk,

Alchi etc. along the way with slight detours.

The highlight of this trek would be the opportunity to mingle with the locals who are very

friendly. You can stay at the many local homestays which are well maintained and cosy,

giving you a rich local feeling. Be sure to capture the beautiful sceneries, Tibetan customs

and rituals on your camera for everlasting memories.
