Hi guys

Recommendations for trekking or village hopping in indian himalayas please.

I have checked out most of himachal pradesh (Lahaul / Spiti / Kullu / Dhauladhars / Garhwal and wish to check Ladakh, Zanskar and kumaon as well along with Sangla, i heard sangla valley is very beautifull.

More links on Kumaon regions and other userfull website's and Your personal recommendations as well...and ohh btw National Santuaries in North india too

Lets start, i would want you guys to check out chandra tal in spiti valley >> http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/Asia/India/North/Himachal_Pradesh/Chandratal/

Ideal season for visit is june to late october.

@shroomz
long time no see bro

info for leh:-

There are 2 roadways to get there both open in may (depends on the amt. of snow)
the first 1 goes from srinagar to leh & the other 1 & the more used 1 is from manali via Baralacha La
U can also fly to leh from delhi or jammu.

i wud really recommend to go via road bcoz that road journey is matched by the other road journey in the world.
the views are breathtaking & jaw dropping to say he least.
WARNING :- it's not a walk in a park road trip this one the roads are dangerous & it's a long & sternous journey in total it's jus 550kms from manali to leh but it takes more then 2 dayz for u to reach there. Also note the last petrol pump is in tandi near keylong.


places of intrest around leh:-

Tso Moriri (big big lake & a big plateau as long as ur eye can see)

Pangong Tso (whateve i say bout this lake is no where near to it's beauty) (Note :- u require permission from leh to visit this place no overnight camping is allowed there) (one more thing that if u are intrested in birdwatching this is the only place in India where u can see Black Necked Cranes)

Nubra Valley (u have to pass through the highest motorable pass in the world 'Khardongla')

& also the many monastries which u sud visit.           the problem with valuing art is, till u dont understand it, it's worthless but wen u do understand it, it's priceless!!

@sure_smoke_alot
Hey .. am around .. good to see u back at ur best ..
Well, I did some research and found out about the 2 ways to approach Leh ..
Now am interested in going to Leh via the Manali road .. Am jus worried as the pass might be shut during april which means i would have to take the one from Srinagar or fly to Leh ..
Both the options am not happy with ..
I want to head via manali so i can see the Lahul / Spiti valley..
Also wanted to make it to Pin parvati valley but then it goes a lil off course.. Lets see
all depends on the weather this year and the amount of snowfall ..

@Karan .. Chandratal .. wow .. lets hope I make it there ..

Lets see how it goes .. More research will always be ON ..
Thanks a lot for your inputs .. Makes things much easier ..
Keep em coming ...

Cheers ..

Btw Manali thread back up in India section .. yeee ...

Well the road to leh sure is jaw opening, i went till baralacha la pass this year, and landscape on the pass is breathtaking.

One more recommendation in kumaon called munsiyari here check sme killer pics from munsiyari and the panchchuli peaks.

u sud bro i've a lot bout this place it's like watching an 70mm screen of the greater himalayas coz of it's topographical position.           the problem with valuing art is, till u dont understand it, it's worthless but wen u do understand it, it's priceless!!

the trip was from manali to leh was made on a bike and was absolutely breathtaking...
please dont fly...u will miss out on soo much

on our way back to manali we got stuck for days because of landslides but if your not on a tight schedule this is the most amazing way to see ladakh.
the scenary is breathtaking...
will add some pics of my trip later today

if you guys are interested in doing something more adventurous try this . they are fantastic and very well organized.

You should ask some locals where Shambhala a.k.a. Shangri-la is supposedly located. once you get there, drink ayahuasca and maybe they'll let you in, lol
