Day 5 Leh- Spituk to Zingchen 3700 m (4-5 hours)
Level: Moderate
The trek traditionally starts at the bridge over the Indus about a kilometer west of Spituk Village.
Our walk begins along an old jeepable on very dry and exposed land, so water and protection against the sun are important! After 2 hours the landscape becomes greener as we go into the Zingchen Valley, where the Rumbak River flows into the Indus. Our camp is in the small village of Zingchen, which means 'big field', where there are just two houses. The rest of the day will be spent enjoying the view and maybe even a dip in the river. (B, L, D)
Day 6 Zingchen to Rumbak 3900 m (4-5 hours)
Level: Moderate
Today we enter Hemis National Park, home to the famous Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep, Ladakhi Urial (a type of goat), great Tibetan sheep (Arghali), red fox, Tibetan wolf, wild dog (dhole), Lynx, marmot and mountain hare. We start to climb gradually up to village of Rumbak. (B, L, D)
Day 7 Rumbak – Stokla – Camp Site (4-5 hours)
Level: Tough
Today may be difficult day on the trek, as in the morning after breakfast you will ascend the 4,900-m. Stok Pass also known as the Namlung La. If you are fit and have camped at the plateau just under the pass as all do, you should have no problem climbing up to the pass. One can climb steadily and made it in less than 1.5 hrs. From the campsite walk less than ½ hrs and on your right you will find zigzagging mountain terrain. (B, L, D)
Day 08: Camp Site – Stok – Leh (4-5 hours)
Level: Easy
Today is an easy day going downhill all the way. Follow the stream on its left bank as it heads north. The path is vast and easy. You will find willows and wild roses growing on islands in the middle of the stream which grows quite wide as you approach Stok. Visit the Stok Palace,residence of the king of Ladakh. We steadily descend through meadows to Thachutse and cross the Nimaling river. The trail follows the Markha river now, and will do so for the next few days. (B, L, D)
