    Set off from Chumathang 4.050 m, walk through the village and follow up the valley north. The path is easy to find since many shepherds use this trail to go for the high pastures with their animals. You will find some of their places on their way. Also it is very likely to see some wildlife as marmots and blue-sheep. As one treks up following the Chumathang river there is no scarcity of water and plenty of camping possibilities. Our choice Gangra is located at 4.630 m with a fine scenery.

    Today it's just a short walking-day, but you won't regret it as the camping is set within such fine scenery that one is left with enough time to explore around it or just relax in the sun. The trail still leads along the Chumathang river from 4.630 m up to 5.140 m. Sumdo, the destination of the day, is at the junction of three valleys. As oxygen levels drop, one has to walk very slowly. But there’ll be enough time to spot some of the marmots and maybe some Kyangs (wild ass). Sumdo is also a place known for huge herds of Yak.


  • Day 4
    Trek Sumdo over Choku-la to Phayalung, 8 hrs

    Today will be quite a tough day as one has to cross the 5.560 m high pass Choku-la, it is advised to start early in the morning. We’ll climb over a ridge and follow the high valley to the east of Sumdo and find a small and unremarkable pass without prayer-flags in the very east of this valley. This is the highest point of this trek and one has a superb view along the surrounding mountains and valley. After that the trail slowly descends through a series of plateaus, one such being dominated by a beautiful lake. We have to climb over a ridge again to finally reach a shepherd's place at 5.200 m, which is fine for camping.

    While walking down, one passes several shepherd’s places,continues walking along the refreshing river, crosses over a desert-plateau with a big Lhato and reaches a small lake with a gorge on its left side. Passing over this gorge, one is treated with a fine view of the big blue Yayatso with its surrounding short meadows, grazing goats and yaks and the small village of Yaya, containing seven houses on the east side of the high valley. Situated on 4.700 m Yayatso is one of the most beautiful lakes in the Changthang region. Camp next to one of the several small streams leading to Yayatso and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere with men and animals living in their natural conditions.

    One could trek over another 4.800 m pass to Mahe as there is a road, but it is better to set off by car. On the way to Mahe, visit the famous nunnery which has more than 100 nuns in Mahe monastery. In Mahe you’ll have the choice to go further into Changthang area such as newly opened area of Nyoma and Muth and/or Tsomoriri/Tsokar Lakes or drive back to Leh.
