Going through the traces of the silk route between Spiti in Himachal Pradesh to Tibet via Ladakh and Changthang, one will surely embark upon and get enchanted by the panoramic cascade of the Trans Himalaya.
Spiti to Ladakh trek is one of the dream treks of every trekker that not only takes one through the changing colours of the Himalayan range, from lush green valley dotted with colourful orchards to barren and desolate terrain, but also exposes the turquoise water bodies perched aloft. Nonetheless, the journey also allows you to get acquainted with several species of Himalayan wildlife that dominates the isolated region. The Spiti to Ladakh trek is thus one of the beautiful treks in the Ladakh region that is a fusion of scenic beauty, Indo Tibetan culture and wildlife. The Spiti to Ladakh trek allows you to step into the footsteps of Buddhism in India as it turns to some of the ancient monasteries and remote villages inhabited by different sects of Indo – Tibetans. Moreover, passing through the high altitude mountain passes and combating the narrow and rocky tracks make the journey more adventurous.
