This remote trail follows the traditional trade route between the people of Spiti, Changthang and Tibet. It begins in the high altitude meadows of Kibber, breeding ground of the famous Spiti horses and also known to be snow leopard country.
A challenging trek for the enthusiastic walker in one of the more spectacular areas of Ladakh recently open.

Parang La The trail descends the Kibber gorge and then climbs over the Parang la (5600 mtrs), the source of the Pare Chu river, the only one of its kind to have its source in India, flow into Tibet and enter the country again in Spiti. Across the pass, brings one to an almost incredible change of scenery as we walk towards the Rupshu plains of Changthang, known for the abundance of Kiangs (Tibetan Wild Ass). For the last two Days, we camp by spectacular campsites, one being on the southern edge of the Tso Moriri (15,000ft), a high altitude lake 27 kms long and nearly 8 km wide. This lake is also the breeding ground for the bar-headed geese, black-necked crane and the Brahminy ducks.

We also visit one of the Changpa settlements in a bowl high above Karzog, where they breed pashmina, one of the trade items to over these high passes.
