The first day of your Parang La trek is all about getting the body and the mind ready for the challenges of the beautiful Himalayan wilderness that lies ahead. The trek from Kibber to Dumla is an easy walk, but do take your time, as the Spitian gorges are renowned for being hard-going.
On the second day of your Parang La trek, you will first descend from the gorge bed and ascend towards the Thaltak Meadow from Dumla. Alive with wild visions of deep gorges of Spiti River, Thaltak makes for a thrilling place to camp for the night.
On the third day of your Parang La trek, keep those nutrition bars in handy, because this is a long and strenuous day walking 8 km to Jagtha (15,700 ft.) and then 6 km to Bongrojen(17,000ft). That’s almost more than half of Mount Everest!
The fourth day of your Parang La trek, is the day of reckoning. Drink some chai, have freshly cooked continental breakfast, breathe in the early morning air and head out. You’re looking to reach your day’s destination in five hours.
The final 4 km trek is a steep 2-hour climb to Parang La (18,300 ft). Bask in the view of the postcard-perfect Spiti and Changthang valleys from above. You’ll also be able to catch glimpses of your final destination, Ladakh, as you can see Parilungi, the first Ladakh peak from here.
After spending some time here, you will descend to Pare Chu River. What follows are acres and acres of broad plains, until you reach DakKarzong, where you’re going to halt for the night.
On the fifth day of your Parang La trek, it’s going to be a musical day. Remember all those songs that are fun to sing in groups? Well, now is the time to sing your heart out as you trudge along in an open valley with a well-marked trail.
You’re going to walk along the left bank of the River Pare Chu, until you camp overnight at DatangYongma.
On the sixth day of your Parang La trek, more Himalayan beauty awaits. A lot of people think that trekking is just the process of getting to an end point, where the celebration lies.
But little do they know that the process itself is cathartic! Today, we follow the trail to Racholemo (14000 ft.) then NorbuSumdo (14400 ft.) and across to ChumikShilde, all of which make you want to celebrate nature like never before.
On the seventh day of your Parang La trek, you will chance upon the most stunning blue lake you’ve ever seen. Nothing spells wilderness like wild animals in their element! Not to worry, though.
On the eight day of your Parang La trek, keep your cameras on your person, as the most memorable scenery you’re going to see in your lifetime is around the corner.
Brace yourself, because as you walk along Lake Tso Moriri, the view of LungserKangri, the highest accessible peak at 6666m in Ladakh is unbelievable. Few people in the world get a chance to see this magnificent site.
You can choose to book a private jeep that would be waiting for you at Karzog today and will drive you to Leh. Or you can choose to take a shared taxi to Leh on your own.
You can choose to explore Ladakh or take a car and get back to Manali / Srinagar or fly back to New Delhi.
