Brief Description

Spituk trek is one of the easy treks in Ladakh; the trek will give you a huge opportunity to see quite a few earliest monasteries and villages rich in culture and agriculture. This trek is easily accessible from Leh and offers a diverse landscape with famous peaks like Stok Kangri (6115m), Kang Yatse (6400 mts) and the Zanskar Range from the south west. During these treks, one can view Karakorum and Nun Kun Range (above 7000m) from the top of a high pass.

Day 1

Leh – Spituk - Zingchen

In the morning after breakfast drive to Spituk (8 kms). From here the trek traditionally starts at the bridge over the Indus about a kilometer west of Spituk Village. However, a jeep able road slated to connect Spituk runs nearly all the way to Zingchan. Upon arrival at Zingchan set out a campsite for dinner and overnight stay. Evening explore the area.

Day 2

Rumbak – Stokla – Camp Site

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 up east for 10 mins and on your right you will find a path zigzagging up the mountain. At first it looks quite steep. Don’t worry. soon crosses over the cleft to the left and heads up east at a less troubling gradient all the way to the pass. Dinner and overnight stay in tent.

Day 3

Camp Site – Stok – Leh

Today is an easy day going downhill all the way. Follow the stream on its left bank as it heads north. The path is broad 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.
