11-day Rumtse to Tso Moriri trek - fixed departures




 770 € per person



The trek from Rumtse to Tso Moriri is one of the most beautiful treks in Ladakh. It takes you through the Changthang region, a high-altitude plateau that has unique landscapes and stunning lakes like Tso Kar and Tso Moriri. This region is home to nomads with their pashmina goats and yaks. It’s an exceptional trek, but demanding because of the crossing of numerous high passes above 5000m.


The trip will start with a 2-day "acclimatization" trek from Zingchen to Stok with one night in a homestay in the charming village of Rumbak. On the third day, you will visit the Buddhist monasteries of the Indus valley and drive to Rumtse.
