Day 1 : Arrival at Leh Airport. Rest for acclimatization.
Coming straight to the altitude of min 3,200 m from a much lower place can cause some health problems. So to avoid that, we suggest our guest to take complete rest for a day to get acclimatized. Later there will be a briefing of the program by the agent or by the company representative.
Day 2 :Sightseeing to Hemis and Thiksey monastery and Stok Palace after lunch
Second day is good to get out doing some sightseeing because you are already acclimatized. So we will start by visiting Hemis and Thiksey monastery at first and then Stok palace after a hot lunch at Chamba restaurant.
Day 3 : :- Zingchen to Gandala base 3,900mts 5 to 6 hrs walk.
It's a gradual climb from Zinchen to Rumbak. From here you can enjoy the fabulous views of the snow capped Stok Mountains. We will move along the Rumbak Nala towards Yurutse. At Yurutse village you will find fields of barley and potatoes. O/N in Camp/Home stay.
Day 4 : Gandala to Skiu 3,100mts via Gandala pass (4,900mts).
A gradual ascent followed by a steep climb gets one to the Ganda la (4900 M). From here views extend south to the Zanskar range and distant summits of the Himalayan range.
