Rupshu Valley Trek-Ladakh, Northern India. Himalayan summer trekking in northern India's Ladakh district, known as "Little Tibet."
The Rupshu region in the south-east of Ladakh is the western fringe of the Chang Tang, a vast plateau that spreads hundreds of kilometers across Tibet. It is a starkly beautiful region of high altitude arid plains, gentle mountain ranges and saltwater lakes such as Tso ( Lake ) Kar and Tso Moriri. As on the Chang Tang, its inhabitants are mostly nomads.
This is one of Ladakh’s protected areas which was opened to tourists only from 1994. It is one of Ladakh's most fragile environments where uncontrolled tourism is causing severe problems. The areas around Tso Kar and Tso Moriri are the nesting grounds for some of the endangered species of birds like the Bar Headed Geese, Pochard and the critically endangered Black Necked Crane to name a few. Some of the tamest Tibetan wild asses can be seen in the Rupshu valley.
Experience of a traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture undisturbed by the Cultural Revolution Ancient, yet active monasteries where monks go about their daily lives, and beautiful artwork enhances rustic interiors Trekking through one of the most remote areas of the Greater Himalaya in a landscape of plunging canyons and verdant river bottoms.
