3days-13days-13days-1

Up we go
Hey Everybody,

I am a bit behind with this blog. So today you'll get 3 days of trek in one go. From Day 8 til Day 10.

Day 8.

Hanumala Base 4000m to Zingshen 3400 but over Hanuma La at 4710m! in 7,5 hours.

This is our last day in Ladakh. Zingshen is the first place in Zanskar.

It was a though climb to the pass and the desent was in a beautifull stoney gorge. On one of the pictures you'll see we came across a huge Ice block. Almost the end of the summer and it still didn't melt. And the just before Zingshen we saw this unbeleivable ravine!



Day 9

Zingshen 3400m to Hanumil 3410m over Parpi La 3900m, 5 Hours (oh a short day!)

Today we saw the Zanskar River for the first time, we'll be following it from now on untill Padum. The trail start to be very dusty. It's very dry around here... Hanumil was our best camping, time for shower and laundry with a water hose!!!

Day 10

Hanumil 3410 to Pishu 3430m 6 Hours

Well from now on it's kinda flat,

Still more to go
more dust and more groups along the way. Zanskar River is widening and sometimes calmer. It's still very hot and dry, the sun is hard!
