Trekking Details,
Meeting at the airport in Delhi and flight together to Leh. Meet your tourleader Dolma at the airport and drive to your hotel in Leh (20 min.). You need to have a complete rest on this day for a good acclimatisation. Dolma will introduce you to Ladakh, teach you your first ladakhi words and you will get to know each other. At lunchtime have a short walk together to a nice restaurant in town. The hotel is a charming small house with comfortable rooms, each with a beautiful view over the Indus Valley.

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Leh – Nyerma – Thikse – Shey - Leh
Drive 20-30 min. to the Nunnery of Nyerma. Here are mostly old nuns living, who are very dedicated doing their Puja in the morning. For sure we can join and enjoy the good atmosphere. Nyerma has the oldest Tchortens in Ladakh. It is said that there was a very old monastic university from which are just some ruins left. After exploring the site, we take a walk to Thikse (45 min., mostly even), one of the most beautiful monasteries in Ladakh by its architecture, which is similar to the Potala in Lhasa. Here we have our lunch and take a sightseeing through the many rooms. From the roof there is a good view over the Indus Valley. By car we start driving towards Leh, but stopp at the palace of Shey, which we visit, too. (Enthusiastic walkers can also go the 3,5 km long way through the fields) Then it goes back to Leh.

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

We spend the whole day in Leh, the capital of Ladakh. Besides that we can go shopping for  missing trekking-gear or other necessary things, we can test our high-altitude-walking-abilities by a hike up to Tsemo Hill with great views over the town. We spend the day quite flexible according to the wishes of the group – maybe visiting an NGO, strolling through the shops, the Mall and the backlanes of the old town, watching the sunset from Shanti Stupa or discovering the small monastery in Sankar.

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Leh – Hemis - Leh
We drive 45 km to the biggest monastery of Ladakh in Hemis. It hosts a museum, too. We will walk up to the hermitage of Gothsang, nestled between the mountains at an altitude of 4.000 m. The hike up and back takes together approx. 2,5 hrs. With our packed lunch we are free to find a nice spot for a good picknick. Afterwards we drive back to Leh.

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, Packed lunch, Dinner

Leh – Alchi - Tingmosgang
On the drive to Tingmosgang (92 km/3 hrs. driving time alltogether) first get a glimpse of the confluence of Zanskar- and Indus-river and see the road from which you come after your trek. Then continue to Alchi with the biggest 1.000 year old monastery complex built from Lotsava Rinchen Zangpo. It is a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. We continue down the Indus and turn right towards one of the biggest villages in Ladakh: Tingmosgang. Big houses, apricot- and walnut-trees, fields of barley and green peas welcome us same as the comfortable Namra Hotel. Above the village at the end of the valley lies the smaller village of Tia with an old tunnel-system between the houses, nestled close together. We discover this unique piece of village-architecture in the afternoon.

Accommodation: Namra Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, dinner

Tingmosgang – Tar - Tingmosgang
First lets have a visit to the local private school, the Lotsava Lamdon School. The assembly starts with a prayer and with good luck the lady-principal has time for a chat with us. Then we go by car for a short drive down to Nurla from where we start our walk to Tar. We cross the Indus on a foot-bridge and walk up a shady gorge which gets totally narrow with huge walls on both sides in the end. After passing through a small gap, the beautiful village of Tar spreads out in a broad valley. We return the same way (alltogether 2-3 hrs. walking time). Back in Tingmosgang we can either relax in the hotel or visit the nuns and/or the monastery or just stroll around and enjoy the village life.

Accommodation: Namra Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner

Tingmosgang - Lamayuru
Either we continue visiting the places in Tingmosgang we missed the previous day or directly drive to the monastery of Tserkamo, nestled high above the village. It hosts an old gompa-room under an ancient tree and an interessting painted new building. We also can walk up the small path towards a tiny meditation cave. Afterwards we drive to Lamayuru (1 hr. driving time). Here is time to visit the monastery with their different rooms and the meditation-houses combined with a great view. Also the exceptional moon-valley looks best in the late afternoon light and invites us for a stroll.
Accommodation: Moonland Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, dinner

Lamayuru - Wanla
3,5 hrs.
First day of our trekking starts! Even if the distance is not too long, we start early to have enough time to get into the rhythm, enjoy the landscape and discover the monastery later in Wanla. The route was damaged in 2015 so that the horses cannot go – we meet them only in Wanla together with the rest of the team. We climb up the pass Prinkiti-la (3.750 m) and go down a long gorge which might be a bit hot and tiring in the summer. On the banks of the river Shilla it is just a short walk to the charming village of Wanla, where our tents and the team with a good tea wait for us. 

Accommodation: tent
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner
Wanla - Hinju
6,5 - 7 hrs.
Today we can test our stamina. Just on road we have to walk the long way to Hinju. But reward awaits us in the end: a most beautiful campsite next to a vivid river with best views towards spectacular mountains. First we walk even 7 km along the river Yapola towards Phanjilla. Here we turn towards the east and start ascending in curves towards the nicely located village of Hinju. We continue approx. one hour to the nice camping.

Accommodation: tent
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner

Hinju – Konzki-la – Sumda Chenmo
7 hrs.
Start the first soft and then steeper ascent towards the pass Konzki-la at 4.920 m. The landscape is spectacular, the mountains differ in shape, colour, size, material and you'll have great views the whole time. Reaching the top is a great achievement and worth a small celebration. You made it! Enjoy the panorama to all sides before starting the decent. Down it goes towards the small village of Sumda Chenmo. The camping is a bit before the village.

Accommodation: tent
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner

Sumda Chenmo – Dundunchen-la Base Camp
6 hrs.
First you reach Sumda Chenmo, where you have the possibility to visit the monastery and some huge unique wooden Buddhastatues. Then continue a beautiful path high above the river, which you have to cross at the end. Here a new ascent awaits you. From the small pass of Larnak-la (4.130 m) you have good views to the very colourful mountains in all shades of purple and green. Around the corner you continue to the Base Camp of Dundunchen-la with best views.

Accommodation: tent
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner

Dundunchen-la Base Camp – Chilling - Leh
6-7 hrs.
Climb up towards the last pass, the Dundunchen-la at 4.610 m. Although not the highest of all passes of Ladakh, it is one with the finest views towards Stok Kangri and even Kang Yazee and mountains in different shapes, colours and shapes. The steep descent to the small village of Chilling (3.155 m) at the banks of river Zanskar is a little tough – so the more you'll enjoy the the drive back to Leh in the car (approx. 2 hrs.)

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: Breakfast, packed lunch, dinner

The last day is free so that you can relax, go for shopping or do some activity which was not in the itinerary and we'll organise for you. 

Accommodation: Lha Lingka Hotel
Meals: breakfast, dinner

See what our Customers say about Trekking with Dolma Women Tour in Ladakh 4-8 Pax

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.

Edwin Gruber

"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."
