Zanskar valley Tour
Zanskar Valley, nestled in the remote corner of Ladakh is one of the most enchanting places to visit in the Himalayas. It is located on the eastern corner of J&K state and is separated from Ladakh by Zanskar mountain range. In ancient times, Zanskar & Ladakh together were part of the kingdom of Guje in Western Tibet. It is connected through Kargil by road and Darcha in Himachal Pradesh by a trekking route over Shingo La pass. Once you visit this wonderland, you will just fall in love with its wide open vistas, fresh aqua blue water streams gushing through the valley, the compelling aura of total remoteness and the massive glaciers which appears to be just a touch away….

Best routes to reach Zanskar Valley
Srinagar – Kargil – Padum is the best & fastest route to reach Zanskar Valley. However, one can also travel from Manali – Leh Highway to reach Leh and then travel from Leh to Kargil – Padum route. In case, you are planning to come from Manali side and exit from Srinagar side, then plan the Zanskar Valley trip through Leh – Kargil route. Otherwise, shortest route to reach Zanskar Valley is through Srinagar – Kargil only.
Alternate routes to Padum, Zanskar Valley
There are couple of new routes to Zanskar Valley which are under construction right now and expected to be completed in next 2-3 years. One route runs from (Himachal) Darcha to Shingo La to Padum and the other route runs along the Zanskar river (Chadar trek), that is, Leh – Nimoo – Chilling – Padum. The route from Darcha – Padum runs along side Phugtal trek and Darcha – Padum trekking route. So, once open, you can also pay visit to Phuktal monastery while coming from Darcha side to Padum. Currently, the 40 KM route from Darcha to Shingo La has been opened and BRO is working to connect rest of the route to Padum beyond Shingo La.
The route from Leh to Chilling to Padum will provide year round connectivity to Zanskar Valley through Leh when Pensi La pass gets closed in winters. Once completed, it will be big change in the lives of local people who have to remain land locked for almost 5-6 months in an year in winters.
