On day first drive to Tia from Leh enroute visit Liker, Alchi and Rezong monasteries. Overnight stay at Tia village. Leave Tia and proceed toward Skindiyang village or you continue from Tingmosgang and plan a whole day for the 2 hours walk from Tingmosgang toTia to do all the sightseeing and enjoy the village life.It takes around 8 hrs to reach Skindiyang where you can camp for the night. Next day leave for Yarma Dok by crossing Sedchan La located on 4095 m. Yarma Dok is a shepherd's place with some greenery. Camp in the upper part, where there is also some fresh water. Yarma Dok is 3.620 m high. From Yarma Dok to Smolchang, one have to cross pass again called Lamamo La located at 3830m. At 3.580 m height, there is a small patch of greenery called Smolchang. It is surrounded by nice rocks for bouldering. You just relax and enjoy being in the mountains. Next morning continue walking toward Dhomkar, again by crossing Samun La at 3845m. After some walk, Houses of upper Dhomkar appear and road connectivity is available there but the main road is at 2.970 m. On last day of trek drive to visit Dha Hanu the only habitant of Brokpa community and Aryan race in India.

Starting from Tia. You can do some sightseeing at Tingmosgang Nunnery, Gompa, Lotsava Lamdon School as well as Tia Nunnery, Tia Gompa and Khatsa Gompa. So it is advisable to arrive a day earlier (or you continue from Tingmosgang and plan a whole day for the 2 hours walk from Tingmosgang toTia to do all the sightseeing and enjoy the village life). One follows the village to the northwest and continues to ascend a 4.070 m high pass. Going down one can get a glimpse of green fields and trees of Skindiyang, a friendly village connected with Khaltse by road. It is located at 3.530 m.
Enjoy the village life and then start the climb for Sedchan-la, a 4.095 m high pass. First you’ll head to the north and then take a turn to a valley climbing up to the west. Going down one might see some grazing animals from Skindiyang. Yarma Dok is a shepherd's place with some greenery. Camp in the upper part, where there is also some fresh water. Yarma Dok is 3.620 m high.
One has to cross a pass again today, the 3.830 m high Lamamo-la. From there, the path keeps getting higher so it is a great pleasure to walk while getting some great mountain-scenery around. At 3.580 m height, there is a small patch of greenery called Smolchang. It is surrounded by nice rocks for bouldering. You just relax and enjoy being in the mountains.
Again one has to climb a pass, which is the Samun-la at 3.845 m. After that it goes down, through quite a narrow gorge and it gets 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 reach up there. But one can also decide to continue through the village and reach 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.
After Breakfast drive to visit Dha-hanu and post the visitation, drive back to Leh
Dear Overland Escape, My family just returned back from Leh and we all agreed that we left part of our heart there - and one of the biggest reasons why was our experience with the team at Overland Escape. From the moment we arrived everything was smooth and the orientation and meetings at the hotel were very helpful. We were expertly driven to see the sights with Doulje and we quickly became comfortable with him and his very easy going spirit (which was perfect with two kids). He adapted very well to our personality and we shared good laughs. We had quite the adventure with Lobzang, Tulag and Tanzing. The rains interrupted our itinerary, but we always felt comfortable and safe with the decision making ability of the team. When we decided to make the best of it by camping in Zeng Chen they made sure they could make it as special as possible. Dinner that evening was amazing! A very special thank you to Lobzang who really looked after our 8-year old son Alex. Alex especially felt a connection with him and Lobzang was very patient and friendly. I know that creating a special experience for others is not about luck - it's about working hard to build a team of good people and having pride in what you do and where you live. The magic is about making it seem easy even though I know it's not and the team worked really hard. My family will remember this very special experience and we can't wait to come back again.
Our trip was even more memorable and enjoyable because of the facilities that Overland Escape provided us.Mr. Tunduk Namgyal, who drove us in and around Ladakh , was very well versed with the roads, had an excellent idea about the climate and all the information & history about the places we visited. Overland provided us excellent hotel arrangements and made sure our trip was one of the best ever....
It's been a week since we've returned to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and we haven't stopped raving and reminiscing about the fabulous time we had trekking from Raru to Shang Sumdo. We just wanted you to know that we have really enjoyed having Namgyal as our guide. His enthusiasm to share his knowledge of the wildlife and the local culture has enriched the experience of our trek tenfold. Just when the walking sometimes gets too tedious, he would point out a herd of blue sheep, a pug mark left by a snow leopard or a few wild asses on a ridge; wild life we would have missed have we been trudging on our own. He knows when to slow down and quicken the pace when there is need. We have felt really safe and well looked after by your staff the whole time. There was one particular river crossing that we were quite worried as we have read that the river can be uncrossable in July. Fortunately with all the prayers and offerings that Namgyal has made to Buddha along the trek, it must have paid off as the river did not swell to an unmanageable level. Namgyal, together with Tulag and Nawang helped us across the river safely.
We've also enjoyed the variety of food Tulag prepared for us every meal and the effort your staff had made to make the dining tent a cosy place to eat (candles and napkins! wow!) His kitchen tent is so organized and as we are used to preparing our own simple food when camping, it is a really pleasant change not to worry about that aspect this time round. He has definitely impressed us with his apple pie, pizza and cake-baking skill. Since our return, I have tried to replicate one of his egg curry recipe but somehow haven't got it quite right yet.
Overall, we have really been very impressed by your attentive and hardworking staff and your recommendation of the trek route couldn't have been better. The remoteness of the trek route is a big plus for us. Thank you for a fabulous trekking experience.
Overland Escape helped us discover the amazing Nubra Valley, then guided us through the spectacular Markha Valley trek and also arranged for a successful summit bid on Kang Yatze 2 (6200m). An amazing trek! Overland were professional and friendly. Our guide (Namgyal) and support team were fantastic and we would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to experience the wonders of Ladakh. We would love to return and will certainly be in touch with Overland Escape to plan our next adventure....
Thank you very much for your all Support & Service.Hotel, Bike & tents all the services are up to the Mark. We must say the correct and prompt support from Your Side was appreciable. Guest is Satisfied and Happy with All Services.
Thanks Again for Making Tour Memorabe!
That’s about all Ladhkhi I could learn in one week from Tundup.
Recently my wife and me had the pleasure of visiting Leh and some of the popular surrounding areas like Ule / Lamayuru, Nubra Valley and Pangong lake.
Our visit was from July 3 to 10, 2016 and was indeed a very nice trip. This was made possible because of the 2 persons who attended and took care of us.
One was Mr Tsetan, who took care of our welfare and gave us the necessary guidance, advise which is much needed in a new place. The second person was our driver, Tundup, who drives the Innova
with regn no. JK ------2962. Tundup was always very prompt, well behaved , courteous and acted as the perfect guide. Through you, I would like to thank both of them for making our visit to Leh memorable indeed.
Unfortunately, circumstances did not allow me to meet you while we were in Leh. However, on a personal note, I would like to thank you and your team for taking good care of us. May , by the grace of Lord Buddha, your company grows to greater heights.
Please take care of Tsetan and Tundup. They are both very good boys.
Please do call me if and whenever you are in New Delhi. It will be a pleasure to meet you.
Thanking you very much.
