5* - Excellent - A VERY
SPECIAL EXPERIENCE! We did this trek in summer 2017 - it was a very special
experience. As promised, the route was really wild & remote. Overall I can
say that the trip was very well organised, we had a very competent guide
(Sherab) and an excellent cook (Indra). The trek is physically quite
demanding, but the experience is well worth it. Especially the river crossings
I remember very well. Bring a large brimmed hat and wear long-sleeve shirts.
The air is very dry, it took us some time to adapt to it.
Some other impressions:
Very good hotel in Leh (quiet location, large room).
Excellent & diverse food - even after many days of walking without the chance of re-supplying (amazing what Indra could do on the gasoline cookers).
Very helpful & friendly team.
Our families at home we notified via e-mail about our location & condition. Sherab used the satellite phones in the villages to talk to Prem.
Sherab knew many people along the route and we were often invited into the houses.
We saw among others, blue sheep and ibex. There were fresh tracks of bear and snow leopard.
