Earlier there was the big Zanskar-crossing – in 21 days from Darcha to Lamayuru. But nowadays there are so many roads constructed, that this trek isn’t existing any more in this form. In the centre of Zanskar the road goes from Anmo to Rinam and kills therefore 5 attractive trekkingdays. Form the North they are constructing a road to Lingshed – it end by now 4 walking hours before Lingshed and is leading sometimes on, sometimes next to the old trekkingtrails. Between the end of this road up to Rinam one can only walk on foot: this trek. But who wants to start earlier already, we can also arrange. As there is very few people walking and nearly no cars, it is not that bad and the great landscape for sure remained.
