Zanskar trek without guide

Hi, I am planning to do the Zanskar trek from Padum to Lamayuru next summer, however my budget is tight and I would like to do it alone (without guide). I will be carrying a reliable GPS so I am confident I will find the way. My main concern is to know if homestays can be found all along the itinerary or if I will have to carry tent and food?
Do you know if homestays can be found in Hanamur and Snertse?

Ladakh trip help  (1 Answer)


We are going for the Hemis festival 29th/30th June. I will also do the Lamayuru to Alchi trek after that. Just wanted to know whether this trek can be done with homestays (without carrying tents) just like we did the Markha valley trel last year. Also, there are two possible routes:
1: Lamayuru -> Wanla -> Hinju -> Sumda Chenmo -> Sumda Choon -> Alchi
2: Lamayuru -> Wanla -> Urshi -> Tar -> Mangyu -> Alchi

Which one will be suitable and more scenic?

Ladakh in Septmeber and festival tinme :)  (4 Answers)


I'm going to fly from Delhi to Leh around the 6th of September, 2011 then hopefully travel by land back down South to Manali, Dharmsala etc

I'm looking forward to the Ladakh festival but I'm wondering does the Ladakh festival have any bearing on finding accommodation in Leh and the Ladakh/ region? Is the festival concentrated on one specific region or spread out over the area? How big and well celebrated is it? I'd like to trek and travel in the region until the end of September then travel by road at the beginning of November. Are the roads generally still open at the beginning of October to head South to Dharmsala? Also what temperature weather is there in September? I suppose I can buy any heavy warmer gear in Leh if needs be?

Thanks so much,
