Spituk to Stok Trek, Ladakh 4N/5D
Preferred Season: May - October
Trek through Hemis National Park to Rumbak
- Walk along the Zinchen Gorge
- Ascend Stok La, 4900 m
The walk through the desolate Zinchen Gorge was thrilling. At one instance, we were treading through shadows over bare, barren rocks and then suddenly the landscape is a well-watered lush valley as we near Zinchen. We trekked through the Hemis National Park, famous for its snow leopards, to Rumbak at the base of Stok La. The view of the Indus Valley with snowy mountains towering behind was magnificent!
