Why Dzo Jongo Is A Must-Do Trek?

Dzo Jongo Peak is a hidden gem and an offbeat trekking destination that not many people are aware of. The trek starts at Leh and takes you through the beautiful Markha Valley and what makes this trek more of a mystery is that the Dzo Jongo peak is not visible until you reach the base camp. In fact, in the first few days of your trekking, you will keep wondering where the peak is. Markha Valley is popular for its Kang Yatse 1 and 2 peaks but there is another 6000-meter peak hiding in the valley, slightly taller than Stok Kangri the Dzo Jongo peak.

While the climb to the Dzo Jongo summit is not technical, it is quite a steep and challenging one. The Kang Yatse peaks have a technical climb but the Dzo Jongo doesnt, which makes it a great alternative. The peak is situated just ahead of Markha Valley next to the Kang Yatse Peaks and many routes can take you to Dzo Jongo, the route through Markha Valley, the same trail that takes you to the Kang Yatse Peak is the most popular one. However, we take the route from the Lato side.

Dzo Jongo has two summits and the climb to the original summit is very steep and enduring. From the summit, you will get excellent views of Kang Yatse peaks, Stok Kangri, Changthang Valley mountains, and the Karakoram Range in the distance. While the trek is not technical, you will need crampons and roping up to ascend to the summit, quite similar to Stok Kangri. One of the best things about the trek is that it takes you through not one but three high passes, Shiul, Chak, and Kongmaru La Pass. A perfect trek for experienced trekkers and for those who want to conquer a 6000-er, which is not as tedious.

About The Trek

Located in the Markha Valley, which is popular for the Kang Yatse trek, Dzo Jongo is a hidden 6000 m peak that an experienced trekker can scale by taking the requisite measures and a certain level of physical fitness.

Our Journey starts at Leh. On the day you arrive at Leh, you will check into a hotel and receive a briefing from our team about the trek. Briefing is given later in the evening and if you wish, you can rent or purchase trekking gear from Leh. We recommend not visiting any high-altitude locations while in Leh as this may affect your physical condition. ATM points are available at Leh, so you can withdraw cash from here if you want.

The next day will also be spent at Leh as an acclimatization day. We will visit monasteries like Thiksey, Shey, Sangam, and Hemis. We will again avoid high altitude places and the visit to monasteries is to help you acclimatize to the weather and the temperature conditions. 

On day 3,  we will drive from Leh to Lato. Lato is situated at an altitude of 13,200 ft and it is situated at a distance of 70 km from Leh. In Lato, we will check into a local guesthouse. Today we will be sightseeing around this oldest village of Ladakh. You can visit monasteries as well as the famous Druk Padam Karpo school where some scenes of the 3 Idiots movie were shot.

The next day is our first trekking day after arriving in Ladakh, we will trek from Lato to Shiul Sumdo, where we will trek along a river and go through a few river crossings. The trek has a moderate ascent and takes you to an altitude of 15,000 ft. We will have lunch at our campsite and sleep in tents at night.

On day 5, we will trek from Shiul Sumdo to Chaksung via Shiul Pass. Shiul Pass is situated at an altitude of 16,700 ft and our campsite at Chaksung is situated at an altitude of 16,100 ft. Today’s trek also has a moderate ascent. On reaching the Chaksung campsite, we will have our lunch and sleep in tents again at night.

The following day we will trek up to the Dzo Jongo Base Camp. While the distance to the Dzo Jongo Base Camp from Chaksung is not much, the ascent is very difficult and we will be crossing Chak Pass at 16,700 ft to reach our Dzo Jongo base camp at 17,100 ft.

Day 7 is a rest and training day where you will prepare with us for trekking to the summit. Our team will provide the necessary technical equipment and teach you how to use them. You will also be given a briefing about the trek. You are recommended to take as much rest as possible today and not exhaust your body. You will need sufficient energy to climb the summit the next day.

Today we will summit the Dzo Jongo Peak and return to the base camp. It is a challenging climb today so prepare yourself mentally. From base camp to the first rest point, it is a fairly easy and flat walk that will take about 20 to 30 minutes. From the rest point, there’s a gradual ascent to the slope and then a moderate ascent up to the point of technical climb, and from here it is a technical climb of about 2 to 3.5 hrs, followed by another 1.5 to 2 hrs of difficult climb to reach the summit.  Witness the remarkable scenery of Tibet and Zanskar Valley from the top and the mighty Karakoram Ranges. After spending some time at the top we will descend to the base camp once again.

On Day 9, we will trek from the Dzo Jongo Base camp to Chokdo. Kongmaru La is our first halt point on the trek. Kongmaru La is a high-altitude pass and from here the descent to Chokdo is a little long. On the way, you will get refreshing views of the Indus Valley and Ladakh range. The descent is quite steep through rocky terrain. Once we reach Chokdo, we will drive back to Leh on the same day and rest at a hotel at night, concluding our journey.

We also like to keep an additional buffer day in the itinerary and it will be used if we are unable to make the summit due to any unforeseen circumstances. If the buffer day is not used, you can use it to enjoy rafting in the Zanskar River or other sightseeing activities in Ladakh.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

Set amidst the scenic Markha Valley in Ladakh, the Dzo Jongo Peak Trek will test your trekking mettle. While it is a non-technical climb, it is equally as enduring, so you need to have a good deal of trekking experience and physical fitness to complete the trek.

The steep and challenging yet doable Dzo Jongo Peak Trek is perfect to quench your thirst for adventure and thrill and also bring you face to face with the scenic splendor of the Markha Valley. En route, you will cross three high-altitude passes, Shiul, Chak, and Kongmaru La which adds to the difficulty of the trek.

You will hike through a variety of terrains, some moderate, some difficult, and some extremely challenging with bits of technical parts as well. The 9-day long trip will be every bit adventurous and memorable.

Following a moderate ascent, you will reach the pass and from the top, you can witness stunning views of Ladakh Range and Karakoram Range.



The entire trek from Shiul Sumdo to Chaksung is about 6 km and it takes 5 to 6 hrs to complete the trek. We will reach the Chaksung campsite by lunchtime and have a scrumptious meal at the campsite.

This is yet another trekking day filled with excitement and adventure. Today we will trek to the Dzo Jongo Base camp and also climb another high Pass, the Chak Pass on the way. While the trek is quite short today, about 4 km, however, the ascent is quite difficult and steep. The terrain gets steeper and steeper as you climb ahead.


Today you will get your first glimpse of the Dzo Jongo peak, which is otherwise well hidden within the Markha Valley. Weather here is unpredictable and changes instantaneously and while trekking to the base camp you can enjoy the stunning views of Kang Yatse and other mountain ranges as they change color with the shifts in weather.


The Dzo Jongo Base Camp is situated at an altitude of 17100 ft and is higher than the Base Camp of Kang Yatse. From the basecamp, you will get splendid views of the Markha Valley as well as the Karakoram Range. We will reach the campsite by lunchtime and enjoy our lunch at the campsite.

Today you will practice using the technical equipment for the summit trek. After practicing, take enough rest so that you can be ready for the summit at night.


Our team usually pushes for the summit by 10 PM so that we can reach the summit by early morning and enjoy a spectacular sunset. Gear up in the equipment youre received and get ready for the biggest climb so far, the climb to the Dz Jongo Summit.



Day 8 : Summit and back to Base camp
    • Altitude:- 6,250 m/20,500 ft
    • Trek 7 km each way, 11 hrs
    • Reach on the Summit by 5-6 am
    • Reach to Base camp by 11am
    • Packed breakfast on the and hot lunch at camp site
    • Carry enough hot water, less water point at glacier(very cold)

The summit climb to the Dzo Jongo peak is going to be long and hectic but once you make it to the summit, you will understand that all the arduous climb was worth it. It is 6 km on both sides and thus one of the longest and most challenging climbs, which only gets steeper and steeper as you climb.


The first 20 to 30 minutes of the trek involves only a fairly easy walk on the leveled ground and you arrive at your first rest point. The climb from here becomes steeper and after 40 minutes of climbing, you will arrive at the Advanced Base Camp. The trail becomes even steeper and while the trail is not technical, the snow can make the climb quite difficult.


You will spot crevasses on the way to the summit and move slowly and cautiously as the climb to the summit is very steep. You will reach the summit by 5 to 6 AM. From the summit, you can spot peaks like Kang Yatse I and II as well as the Changthang Valley mountains.


As you go through each rest point the path becomes steeper and steeper until you make it to the summit at an altitude of 6250 meters. The sunrise at such a high altitude is almost a surreal experience and one of the biggest defining moments of the trek. After enjoying the spellbinding views from the summit, we will head towards the base camp once again and reach the camp by noon. Have lunch at the campsite and rest for the remaining day at the base camp.

Day 9 : Base Camp to Chokdo via Kongmaru La & drive to Leh
    • Altitude:- Kongmaru 5,200m/17,100ft, Chokdo 3,700m/12,100ft
    • Trek 14 km, 8 hours
    • Descent to Chokdo (Shang Valley) from KongmaruLa is little long
    • Highest Altitude pass crossing to the trek makes it a difficult day
    • It will take 3-4 hours of hike for Kongmaru La Pass
    • Amazing view of Indus Valley and Ladakh Range
    • Steep descent and rocky terrain
    • Drive to Leh 60 km
    • Stay in Hotel


    Day 10: Buffer Day

    • Buffer day will be used if unable to summit due to of any unforeseen circumstances.
    • Opting a buffer day will be a team decision not an individual.
    • Keep a buffer day in your travel plan.
    • Buffer day is not included in the cost.
    • Buffer Day Cost entire group per day (Rs 30,000 per day).
    • Please make any further travel plan on Day 11.
    • If buffer day is not used in the Expedition then it can be used to explore Leh.

      o Motorcycle Tour
      o Khardung La visit
      o One day trip to Pangong lake
      o full day sightseeing
      o Zip line



Our return journey starts today as we descend from Dzo Jongo Base Camp to Chokdo and cross even another high pass, the Kongmaru La Pass. The Kongmaru La Pass is located at an altitude of 5200 m and crossing the pass makes today’s trek a little difficult. From the Pass, you can enjoy stunning views of Ladakh Range as well as the Indus Valley. The views of Indus Valley are quite different and you will spot reddish copper and basalt trails leading up the mountains. This is quite a different view as compared to earlier.

The descent from the Kongmaru La Pass is quite steep and it may require roping to descend safely. Further climbing down a rocky terrain will bring you to Chokdo and from here you will drive back to Leh which is approximately at a distance of 60 km.


Day 10: Buffer Day

Sometimes it may require more than 9 days to make it to the summit due to unforeseen conditions. We recommend you keep a buffer day in your travel plan. In case of unfavorable conditions, we will wait at the base camp for an extra day and attempt to make the summit once again. However, using a buffer day is a team decision. Also, note that the cost of the buffer day is not included in the package. 30000 INR per day per group is to be paid for buffer day. If the buffer day is not used it can be used for sightseeing and taking part in adventure activities like Rafting in Zanskar, Zip Line, Mountain Biking, Motorcycle tour, etc.

After all the exciting adventures its time to go back home with lots of memories and your heart filled with satisfaction.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.


  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.


In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek.
