The valley of Sham, in the lower part of Ladakh, is celebrated for its beauty and richness during the harvest. This trek follows the old caravan route to Lamayuru, which diverges from the Kargil and Leh road at the Phatu La. According to a legend, Lamayuru was once filled by a lake, which miraculously disappeared by the hand of Lotsava Naropa. The monastery at Lamayuru, built in the 10th century, is one of the oldest in Ladakh, and is of the Kargyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. This trek is unique in that it offers one the opportunity to see not only the many natural beauties of Ladakh, but also some of its most famous monasteries.
