Each treks combines 4 to 5 hours walking, with short transfers between your lodge and the trailhead.  En route, you will be able to gain an insight into the everyday life of Ladakhis, as well as enjoying Ladakh's breathtaking landscape of snow-capped mountains, barren hillsides and oasis-like green valleys.
