MAP


Day 1 : Drive to Saspotse, Trek Saspotse to Shepherds Place, 3-4 hrs.

Drive by car from Leh to Saspotse. The pleasant 65 km drive along the Indus takes around 2 hrs. Saspotse is the village behind Likir on the less driven road to Hemis Schukpachen. Start in the centre of the village on 3795 m. There is a little gompa in the last but one house of the village on 3860 m. Continue the path through the valley to the North along the west side of the river Saspol Tokpo. When there is a river junction on 4.345 m, take the path to the west, continue for an hour and leave it to climb the ridge to the North to reach a shepherds place at 4.500 m. Camp

Day 2 : Trek Shepherds Place to Lago-la Base Camp, 4 hrs.

Set off to the North a little up and down over moraines again along the river Saspol Tokpo. On 4600 m you come across a dried up lake (called Zingog) which can sometimes be used as a water supply damm. 100 m of altitude higher is a small yellow lake called Tso Sermo. After an hour one comes across an abandoned shepherds place. Just before arriving in the Base Camp which is at a junction of three valleys, one has to cross a river. Camp at 5000 m with a fine scenery.

Day 3 : Trek Lago-la Base Camp over Lago-la to Rakuruk Doksa, 9 hrs.

Getting higher and higher to the North one comes across the lake Tso Chiang Gongma on 5180 m and finally reaches the pass Lago-la on 5400 m after 2-3 hrs. after departure. From here one has a great view over the Zanskar range to the South and the Saltoro Range to the North. For the descend one first has to cross a little glacier/snowfield, depending on time of year and snowfall how long it is (beginning July 2011 1,5 km). In the end the snow turns into water and gurgles down the valley to turn into a river named Rhakura.

Day 4 : Trek Rakuruk Doksa to Rakuruk, 4,5 hrs.

One follows down the Rakuruk river on the west side down along small pastures, gets glimpses of other valleys leading into the mountains and comes across a huge variety of vegetation. Finally one arrives in the small village of Rakuruk, containing of seven houses and being located at an elevation of 4040 m. Lots of water sources make the village a very flowerful one besides the barley- and green-pea-fields and the vegetable gardens.

Day 5 : Trek Rakuruk to Skuru, 3-5 hrs.

The sides of the river narrow until it becomes a small gorge where one has to follow the small path high above the gurgling water. One has to be free of fear of heights and must be sure-footed. The gorge opens into the Nubra Valley at the small village of Skuru with around 300 inhabitants at an altitude of 3150 m. Here one can do camping or take a room at one of the family houses.

Day 6 : Skuru to Leh

Drive back the ca. 150 km via Khardong-la to Leh or use the chance to discover more of the Nubra Valley visiting the beautiful villages of Hundar, Deskit, Sumur etc.
