From a purely scenic point of view this is one of the most beautiful treks in Ladakh. While it is a very high trek (so prior acclimatization is essential) the terrain is relatively gentle and most of the passes are not very steep. There is ample opportunities along the way to climb relatively easy but very high peaks for even more amazing views.
Do It Yourself Information
There are few tricky junctions and areas where there is very little defined trail. After the first pass you descend into a valley before the second pass and cross a stream the trail goes up the left side of the valley opposite where you descend, there are some herders trails that go up to the next valley where there are some rock shelters which can confuse you. The third pass has no real trail up it just go up the opposite side of the valley from where you descended the trail is re-defined again after the summit for the decent to Tso Kar. The fifth pass is straight up the middle valley from the nomad camp of Rajung Karu.
