Day 4 :- Tilad Do to Shingra Koma. (Altitude10,390 to 10,550 ft.)
Trek 10 to 12 kms. Post the briefing with the Trek Leaders start the trek. Depending on the weather, the path will be decided on the way. After passing Shingra Koma, you reach the camp-site for the day at Gyalpo, where the tents have already been pitched by the porters. The Gyalpo campsite is at a bend in the river, surrounded by high peaks and walls of rock-faces which almost look man-made. All that is left to do is to soak in the views, have an early dinner and call it a day.
Day 5 :- Shingra Koma to Tibb Cave. (Altitude 10,550 to 10,760 ft.)
Post the briefing with the Trek Leaders start the trek for the next 15 kms. Today’s walk
through the deep ravines of the Zanskar is stunning. The sublime walls of the mountains on either sides of the river keep the sunlight away from the Chadar for most part of the day. At Tibb, there is a big cave. This cave is the dwelling of all the porters, and they welcome you warm-heartedly in here. Stay in tent.
Day 6 :- Tibb cave to Naerak camp. (Altitude 10,760 to 11,150 ft.)
Trek 12.5 kms. This day will be the most spectacular of all days on this trek. Walking on the river you cross deep gorges and reach a point where Juniper trees are covered with prayer flags.The porters give you a twig of this tree tied with a piece of prayer flag as a badge of good-luck and good-health. A few steps away stands the mother-of-all frozen waterfalls – a huge instance of suspended animation several feet tall and equally wide. You can see dozens of colors in this enormous ice structure as sunlight plays off its surface. Right next to the waterfall is a bridge across the river which is a part of the summer-time road from Zanskar to Leh. The Naerak village lies several feet above the river, a vigorous hour-long trek can take you to the village if you want to see the life of a Zanskari. The camp is set up close to the river.
Day 7 :- Naerak to Tibb Cave. (Altitude 11,150 to 10,760 ft.)
Trek 12.5 kms. Returning journey. Don’t be disappointed, by now the whole landscape would have changed. The Zanskar River reacts to the slightest change of temperature, and constantly keeps repackaging itself. The Chadar would have assumed a completely new form, and will it will almost be impossible to say whether you have been here before. Stay in tent.
Day 8:- Tibb Cave to Shingra Koma. (Altitude 10,760 to 10,550 ft.)
Trek 15 kms . Starting from Tibb, go up to Gyalpo today. The high walls of mountains rising
from the sides of the river almost look like castle walls. You can see several trails of pugmarks all along the trek – footprints belonging to foxes, ibex or snow-leopards. You would be lucky to view a snow-leopard; but you can almost be sure that you are being watched by one all the time. Stay in tent.
Day 9 :- Shingra Koma to Tilad Do and drive to Leh. (Altitude 10,550 to 10,390 and drive to 11400 ft.)
