A beautiful trek through a less-frequented area of Ladakh, this route follows the same trail as on the Markha trek for the first 3 days, before entering the high plateau of Changthang, which stretches far into Tibet. The only inhabitants of this desolate wilderness, where the climate is so extreme that you can get sunburn and frostbite at the same time, are nomadic and semi-nomadic people, who live in tiny settlements with their yak, sheep, pashmina goats and a small harvest of barley on which they survive.
