Chang La valley nature Trail


Grade: Strenuous

Max altitude: 5300m

Days: 23


Entering from Simikot, (2910m) eastwards into Thehe and Dozam village, the trail follows the Chang river through the lush valleys of medicinal forest products and wild animals reaching the enigmatic view of Changla, (6900m) and the pristine lakes and peaks in the periphery. Finally, the trail winds touching the Limi valley and circulating back into Simikot through Kermi village.


This is a route used by ancient traders and caravan, and now by the herders. For tourists this is a new route to set your foot print.
