Lamayuru to Chilling Trek

 
The valley of Sham in the lower part of Ladakh, is celebrated for its beauty and richness during the harvesting season. This trek follows the old caravan route to Lamayuru which diverges from the Kargil-Leh road at the Phatu La. According to legend, Lamayuru was once a lake, which miraculously disappeared by the hand of Lotsawa Naropa.The monastery at Lamayuru built in the 10th century is one of the oldest in Ladakh, and belongs to the Kargyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. This trek offers not only view of the many natural beauties of Ladakh, but also some of its most famous monasteries and the traditional lifestyle of the natives.
