The Peaks Of Ladakh Trek trip starts and ends in New Delhi. It is a trekking tour that takes 16 days taking you through Shang, New Delhi, Leh Ladakh and 5 other destinations in India. Peaks Of Ladakh Trek is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Ladakh remains one of the best places to experience the unique culture of the High Himalaya. As well as the Tibetan culture and religion there are some fantastic trekking routes, many of them off the beaten track. Ladakh is also the best place to conquer your first 6,000m Himalayan peak and if conquering one summit isn't enough of a challenge, try two peaks and seven passes! After acclimatisation time in Leh (3,500m) we begin trekking from Mankarmo. The trail ascends spectacular gorges and crosses mountain passes to reach a high altitude plain at Nimaling.  This is inhabited by Ladakhi shepherds and their huge flocks of sheep, goats and yaks. Vatseri Peak (5,640m) is a good warm up before summiting our highest peak, Dzo Jongo East (6,189m), which offers breath taking views over the Karakorum and Indian Himalaya. This optional climb is tough but technically easy and a much quieter summit thanStok Kangri. We trek out to the roadhead via a remote pass and beautiful valley with fantastic rock formations.

3 peaks of Ladakh
5 - Excellent
“A good opportunity to experience the raw and unspoilt beauty of the Himalayas. A challenging trip with only the basic amenities, taking you to less frequently travelled paths and up some less renowned but no less spellbinding peaks. Also, for those willing to listen and learn, it offers a good exposure to Tibetan Buddhism, its rituals and beliefs. Finally, a good chance to meet very interesting, widely travelled people who appreciate the challenge and don't mind the monastic austerity of the trek.”
