Camping on the top of a glacier is worth experiencing at least once in your lifetime
This trek journeys through Lahaul in Himachal to Zanskar in Ladakh over a duration of 2 weeks. You’ll see lush green meadows, brown rocky terrain, emerald green lakes, remote villages, meandering streams, and snow and ice - all while you walk through this dramatic and humbling vista. We'll cross an altitude of more than 5468 m, with days set aside for acclimatisation, and traverse the 24 km long Miyar glacier, one of the longest glaciers in Himachal, on our way to Kang La top.
