Tour Route

Leh / Tsomoriri / Nurboo Sumdo / Parang La / Kibber / Kaza

Tour Program

Day 01: Leh to Tsomoriri Lake 6 hrs
After breakfast drives to Tsomoriri via Chumathang. Overnight in Camp.  

Day 02: Korzok to Kyangdam (4595m) 5 hrs
This day you will walk from Korzok to another end of the Lake with a few ups and downs. Overall it is totally different walking day with a similar experience of walking on the beach. The difference of walking here is the narrow tails mostly rocky and sand sometimes. There are maximum chances of spotting wild ass in this area. The Camping site is just at the end of the Lake, before the river. There is no toilet facility.

Day 03: Kyangdam to Skitpodangsa (4563m) or Nurboo Sumdo  4-5 hrs.
This day is again an easy walking on the flat ground to Nurboo Sumdo. You will have to wet your feet as soon as you leave camp. Pass through spring (Chumik Sharte) and the campsite is a deep ground near the river and spring. You can also camp at Skitpodangsa on the another side of the Parangchu but water level can be high in the afternoon if you are trekking in the month of early August or July.

Day 04: Skitpodangsa or Nurbo Sumdo to Getpabuzak (4600m) 5-6 hrs.
If you camp at Nurboo Sumdo don’t forget to carry sandal with you for water crossing. The river is full of small pebbles, which hurts your feet without sandal. After crossing the river you will walk towards south for the next few days. Gradually you walk along the river. Camping site is just after small ups and down.

Day 05: Getpabuzak to Tarangyokma (4731m) 4-5 hrs.
This day is again straightforward walking along the river with on the rolling plateau before the Valley widens. Keep walking in the same direction along the river and the campsite is near the river with a small spring. It is a nice camping area but there are no toilet facilities.

Day 06: Tarangyokma to Kharsagongma (4900m) or Parang la base (Bubnen) (5089m) 3-4 hrs.
Today again you will remain in the same valley and ascend of the Parangla starts from Kharsagongma. If you are in big group its ideal to camp at Kharsagongma as there is space for only a few tents. Otherwise, continue walking to the base Camp of Parangla Pass.

Day 07: Kharsagongma to Takkarzong (4850m) via Parang La (5588m).
Cross the river immediate after leaving the Camp. Take the trail from your left hand side and the right side of the glacier. As you walk upwards, craves become very narrow from where you can cross the glacier. Start walking towards southeast and after around 3 hours walking you can see colourful prayer flags flapping at the top of the Pass.  Take the steep descent to the campsite near huge rock and the waterfalls from it. But in end of September and October water dries up, therefore you have to carry water from the Parang base.

Day 08: Takkarzong to Thangltak (4500m) 4-5 hrs.
It’s vertical walking down to the Parangchu and remains walking at the same level along the Paranghu to the east for sometimes before you take another exhausting Climb to Thangltak. Thangltak has very nice campsite with a wonderful view of the mountains and spring water. Kibber is just another 3 hours walk from here.

Day 09: Thangltak to Kibber 3 hrs.
Take the straight trail towards east with gentle ascend. From the highest point you will walk steep down to bridge with a few zigzag trails. Cross the bridge and reach Kibber village. Overnight in Guesthouse in Kibber.

See what our Customers say about Tsomoriri to Kibber 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."
