Zanskar Trek (Kanji to Darcha)
I’m a 31 year old male from the US who will be arriving to Leh on July 6th.
I’ve contacted a guide from Zanskar who is a native who was recommended from the forums at Lonely Planet and have arranged a trek from Kanji to Darcha. It will start in Leh and finish in Darcha where you can continue on to Manali in a day (which I plan to do). Starting in Kanji avoids some of the roads that have creeped in on the trail.
It’s an 17-18 day trek that will be challenging. Highest pass is 5100 meters just 3-4 days into the trek. So you will need to be acclimatized. Other passes will be 4000m or higher.
I’m experienced having trekked to K2 Base Camp, Everest Bast Camp, Manaslu Circuit, Huayhuash Circuit, etc…..but not planning on taking this trip extra fast or anything.Reply
