First day of the trek
Skyu Monastery and Kaya village
After waking up in the enchanting setting of the village of Rumbak, you will leave on the paths of Ladakh with your local team. It is a demanding day's walk as you cross another altitude pass, the Stock-La, culminating at 4,900 metres. The climb is long and steep to reach the summit. Upon crossing of the pass, everyone sings triumphantly "Kiki Soso Lhagyalo", a local tradition to celebrate the challenge. You continue your trek in Ladakh amidst fabulous scenery until you reach Lchangma Chan to set up your camp for the night.
