Day 4: Trek Hundar to Skarchen/Wachan (3800m)
The trail to Skarchen starts by crossing a bridge over the Hundar River and walking on the road which is being paved beside the river. Skarchen is beautiful camp set next to the river and willow trees all around. The new road being built goes all the way to Wachan. Soon it will reach Hundar Dok and subsequently the treks would begin from here. Option to camp at Wachan, a beautiful village, at approx 2 hours walk from Skarchen.
Day 5: Trek Skarchen to Hunder Dok (4010m)
A two hour walk in the gorge leads us to the Wachan village crossing. From here the trail climbs up and leads us up to the village of Dok yongma from where the trail to the village Hunder Dok is well defined and passes through spectacular lush green barely fields. Hundar Dok is almost a hidden Village and nobody would realize that such a big Village could exist somewhere inside when you start trekking. The narrow Nubra gorge just opens up to this massive Village with farmfields of barley, wheat and potatoes. There is a path that runs through the middle of the Village dividing the Village and the farmfields into 2 halves. One of the houses mans a DSPT phone connection which could be used for making calls.
Day 6: Trek Hunder Dok to Thanglasgo (4500m)
Today we start our walk following a small stream leading out of the Village. The trail leads us to the junction of the Thanglasgo valley and the Snui Sumdo valleys. Following a small stream in the Thanglasgo valley we gradually climb up to the Thanglasgo, our destination for the day. Thanglasgo also serves as the grazing grounds for all the cattle(Yak, Sheep, Goat) from Hundar Dok and Wachan. There are 2 big Shepherd’s settlements here. We camp a little ahead of these settlements.
Day 7: Trek Thanglasgo to Lasermo La Base (4800m)
The trail to Lasermo La base starts with following a small stream. The trail passes through large meadows gradually gaining altitude and is very well defined. There are a few lakes too which have been formed by the water draining from the glacier. Yaks and Dzos can be seen grazing around. On reaching the base camp of the Lasermo La we get spectacular views of the eternally snow bound Lasermo La pass.
Day 8: Trek to Lasermo La (5400m) and descend to Lasermo La South Base (4500m)
We make an early start so that we walk on had snow and try to cross the pass before the sun starts thawing it. As the sun warms up, the snow loosens and the horses sink in. Starting early morning we climb up gradually crossing the moraine and reach the snow line. From then on it is walking on snow till the top of the Lasermo La. The Pass offers a spectacular view of the Karakoram mountains and the Ladakh and Zanskar ranges. From the pass, we descend to the south base of the Lasermo La. The south base is naked without any snow on the surface. Laser
