Tour Route

Tour Program

Day 01: Leh to Tia
After Breakfast drive to Tia enroute visit Liker, Alchi and Rezong monasteries. Overnight in Tent or Guest House.

Day 02 : Trek Tia to Skindiyang, 8 hrs.
Start in Tia at 3.500 m. Before you can do some sightseeing of Tingmosgang Nunnery, Gompa, Lotsava Lamdon School as well as Tia Nunnery, Tia Gompa and Khatsa Gompa. So it is advisable to arrive already a day earlier (or, if you continue from Tingmosgang plan a whole day for the 2 hours walk Tingmosgang-Tia to do all the sightseeing and enjoy the village life). One follows the village to the northwest and continues to ascend on a 4.070 m high pass. Going down one can glimpse the green fields and trees of Skindiyang, a friendly village connected with Khaltse by road. It is located on 3.530 m.

Day 03 : Trek Skindiyang to Yarma Dok, 4 hrs.
Enjoy the village life and start then for the climb on Sedchan-la, a 4.095 m high pass. First go to the north and then take a turn to a valley climbing up to the west. Going down one might meet some grazing animals from Skindiyang. Yarma Dok is a shepherds place with some greenery. Camp in the upper part, where there is also some fresh water. Yarma Dok is 3.620 m high.

Day 04 : Trek Yarma Dok to Smolchang, 3 hrs.
One has to cross a pass again today, the 3.830 m high Lamamo-la. From there the path keeps being high so it is a big pleasure to walk while seeing a great mountain-scenery around. On 3.580 m is a small patch of greenery called Smolchang. It is surrounded by nice rocks for bouldering. Otherwise just relax and enjoy being in the mountains.

Day 05 : Trek Smolchang to Dhomkar 4 hrs.
Again one has first to climb a pass, which is the Samun-la at 3.845 m. After that it goes down, sometimes through quite a narrow gorge and sometimes quite steep, so one has to be careful and watch one's steps. At 3.380 m the houses of Upper Dhomkar appear and a car can drive up to there. But one can also decide to continue a little through the village and meet the car where the road crosses the valley. The main road is at 2.970 m. Around the corner is the Rock Art of Dhomkar with very old petroglyphs.

Day 06 Dhomkar to Dha to Leh
After Breakfast drive to visit Dha-hanu and drive back to Leh

See what our Customers say about Tia to Dhomkhar Trek

I have travelled with teams of Overland Escape on 6 occasions now and every single time the experience was wholeheartedly positive. On two occasions, Tundup organised lengthy treks through remote parts of Ladakh, Zanskar and Nubra and his organisation was absolutely reliable and spot on on every occasion. The trekking teams we travelled with were excellent, the food outstanding and the support available whenever it was needed. We were trekking during the floods in Summer 2010 in Zanskar and Changtang, and were, ultimately, the only trekking group that reached Tso Moriri during the middle of August, in the week just after the flooding. This was due to the competence of our guide, Namgyal, who changed our route to enable us to proceed, who knew exactly where to cross the swollen rivers and who kept us completely safe at all times. On 4 occasions, Overland Escape organised Easter expeditions through the Markha Valley for relatively large school groups. This, of course, needed extraordinarily good organisation, and on each occasion, this was exactly what we got. Not only were all timings kept and all information was relevant and 100% reliable, the trekking teams Tundup organised for us, were amongst the best teams I have ever travelled with. In particular, Namgyal is in all likelihood the best guide I have ever trekked with. His knowledge of the region, its culture and wildlife is outstanding, and he is also an excellent travel companion. He can empathise with and enthuse adults and youngsters to the same degree. Overland Escape certainly is one of the best trekking outfits I have come across in the Himalayas or indeed anywhere in the world (I have also trekked in Nepal, Tibet, Pakistan, Peru and Jordan). I would wholeheartedly recommend travelling with this organisation.

"Tundup, have really a sixth sense...his associate in Manali (Kuram) is really a good man...a really good man where you can trust and give the full faith for everything. As already said, Tundup, know very well how to choice his partners. Concerning the driver choose by Kuram for the transfer from Manali to Dharmasala and then to Amritsar...he was a very good professional driver. All of us were surprise to find out in India a special driver, very professional, very polite...typical western style driver. Few words, always agree for everything, never complain and at the end he wanted to refuse our tips and we forced him to have it. I don't know if this choice has been affected by Tundup or by Kuram...but in any case...compliments to all of you. Now we are here into our house, very sad...our holiday has finished so quickly that we didn't realize. Everything has gone well, everything perfect. We'll be always in debit with Tundup for his great service and we really hope to see him again in a close future for another trekking. Thanks again for all, thanks for your book guide and for your full assistance."
