Padum To Lamayuru Trek( 13 days)
We will suggest our clients do the trek from Padum to Lamayuru rather going from Lamayuru to Padum, why? Because the other way round is much better option for acclimatization, as if you start from Lamayuru you have to go through big passes every day, and if you start from Padum, you will drive for 2-3 days via Kargil. When you start the trek first 3-4 days are without any high pass, which is ideal for acclimatization. While driving from Leh to Padum you will go through the most fascinating places of Ladakh & Zanskar, like Basgo, Likir, Alchi, Rizong, Lamayuru, Mulbek, Suru Valley, glimpse of Nun peak 7077m Rangdum, Sani, karsha, & Stongde.
