Rumtse is situated 70 Kms east of Leh, the starting point of this popular and highly regarded trek. Our local operator believes this is the best trek in the Himalaya, so maybe you should prioritise this trek (or share your own point of view with him over a cup of ginger tea in Leh!)
Rupshu Valley lies sandwiched between Ladakh in the north, Tibet in the east and Zanskar in the west. It is a part of the Changthang plateau and is characterized by high arid plains, nomads, high pasturelands, snow-capped peaks and beautiful high altitude azure-blue lakes, the largest being Tsokar & Tso Moriri at 4,500 m. From Korzok to Kiber the transformation of landscape is breathtaking.
