Hemis National Park Circuit
16 days, Grade C
A trip to Ladakh in Northern India is a journey back in time. The Ladakhi people have a great hospitable nature, and here you will see first hand the landscapes and culture of “Little Tibet”. Arriving in Delhi we have a tour of the Red Fort before flying to Leh the following day. Here we spend 3 nights and two days acclimatising to the altitude of this high plateau. After exploring the area around Leh, including a jeep safari to the highest motorable point in the world at Khardung La (5602m), and a visit to Thikse Monastery and Shey Palace, we start our trek
This complete circuit of the Hemis National Park in Ladakh is a fabulous route which includes not only the famous Markha Valley, with pretty Ladakhi villages, but also a traverse across the Stok Range over high passes and herders’ pastures. This last part of the trek gives a great finale and is rewarded with the most fabulous views. Combining the cultural heritage of Ladakh with beautiful villages and Buddhist monasteries, along with the mountain wildlife. The Hemis National Park is home to the elusive Snow Leopard, and you should see much of the wildlife, such as Marmot, Blue Sheep, Argali, as well as Golden Eagles, lammergeyers and Vultures. The mountains are a myriad of colours which are stunning to view and most rewarding to trek through. This is an all round adventure in the beautiful Ladakh region, with great mountain views across the Ladakh, Stok and Zanskar Ranges. It is a serious “Must Do” for all walking enthusiasts.
