Towering at an elevation of 7135 meter, this peak in Suru Valley watches over the entire Zanskar area. The higher peak in the Nun Kun massif, Mount Nun’s glittering presence could be felt from the moment you set foot in Leh with the twin peaks manifesting brilliantly along the road to Kargil.

 To mount this peak is a task for darers with true grit. Intensive glacial formations, icefall slopes, thoroughly crevassed surfaces, knife-edge cliffs, vertical ice walls, and unpredictable weather beset the expedition to Nun with thrills of a thousand kinds.

On your arrival in Leh, you can start exploring monasteries and remains of the ancient Himalayan culture of this place. Pay a visit to Shey Palace in Ladakh’s previous summer capital, the monasteries Sangam, Thiksey, and Hemis to expand your cultural outlook and also to gain acclimatization points. 

The drive to Kargil in the next phase by NH 1 or the Leh-Srinagar highway will open up a panorama of cold desert hues contrasting against the ice peaks of the Zanskar Range. The incomparable beauty of the fertile Suru Valley amidst the cold desert in passing will be a picture to remember.

Itinerary
Arrival Leh

After your arrival in the morning, you will be escorted to our Hotal in Leh near main market area. If not reeling from jet-lag, you can keep the rest of the day for scouring the colorful bazaar full of fascinating items of cultural interests, or save it for the acclimatization day on Day 3. Network coverage is available in Leh, so it is a good day to conclude all your calls home.

The Kushok Bakula Rimpochee airport in Leh, named after a prominent Buddhist monk of the order of the spituk Monastery is one of the highest airports in the world situated at 10, 682 ft. You will find the approach from Leh airport fascinating with soaring mountain terrain enclosing the area most strikingly. Afternoons in this vicinity is infamous for charged high winds therefore all arrival of flights are scheduled in the morning. You are likely to find the airport packed with Indian Army patrols and security measures tight.

Leh (Acclimatization day)

The second day is reserved for acclimatization and preparation in Leh. You can spend the day with your visit to different sightseeing points in and around. Leh’s Old Town is dominated by the ancient Leh Palace, a signature of the legacy of the ancient Kingdom of Ladakh, built by Dragpa Bumdey-the King. Situated on a high mountain ridge, this ancient palace overlooks the whole town. Wreathed in many an interesting curio and souvenir shops, the colorful Leh bazaar spreads out below.

Starting out early, today is good to visit the network of ancient Buddhist monasteries strewn around Leh. Providing serene getaways from the hustle bustle of the town, the monasteries of Thikse, Namgyal Tsemo, Sangam and Hemis can be the perfect place to find some inner peace and fortitude needed for the hard days of climb coming up ahead.

Leh to Kargil

Our road trip starts early this morning after breakfast at the guest house and packed meal for lunch on the way. Meandering through a spectacular expanse of cold desert highlands, we will take the highway connecting Kashmir to Ladakh- National Highway 1, passing a number of notable sites as we go. The Great Himalayan rises and falls starkly on both sides of the road dramatically, a view from which it is hard to take your eyes off.

After crossing Dras, we will pass by the Kargil War Memorial, remindful of the plight of the nation’s soldiers in the harshest of conditions, dead of the night and early morn, often in subzero temperatures and hostile foes firing from hidden corners with nowhere to run for cover.

A little way further, we run into a beautiful blend of aquamarine colors at the confluence of Indus and Zanskar rivers. This point is about 6km from the village of Nimo, where we can stop for having our packed lunch and little something more on the sides.

At 30 km off Leh, we will follow through the “magnetic hill” road towards Kargil This is actually a gravity hill that creates a fascinating illusion of an uphill road while the road is actually downhill. As a result, you will find locomotives moving ahead of you here appearing to roll in an ascending line uphill, challenging gravity to the core! In the vicinity of the magnetic hill region you will find the beautiful Gurduwara Pathar Sahib, found after a legend of the devil defying guru Nanak the father of Sikhism by throwing a pathar or rock.

At about 100 km off Leh, right after Fotu La- the highest pass on this highway, we will enter the “moonland” of Lamayuru. Carved into the dry hills like moon terrains is the sandy mountainscape of Lamayuru. With a little time in your hands you can visit the Lamayuru gompa here.

As a cautionary measure, come equipped with medicine for motion sickness as the snaky turns of this long journey can make any unaccustomed traveler oozy in the stomach. To beat the threats altitude sickness, make sure to stay thoroughly hydrated. After nightfall we will reach our guest house in Kargil.

Kargil to Tangul

This morning by 7, we will off on our way through Suru Valley to the little hamlet of Tangul.

Kargil has less to offer in terms of mountain peace and scenic beauty. It is a noisy and crowded little town lying between the high passes of Zozi La and Fotu La. Remember, this will be your last contact with amenities and civilization before taking off into the wilds. Utilize the available things in the local market and stock up on your supplies for the expedition.

On a parallel with the Indus-tributary of Suru River we will inch closer to our mighty destination. The Nun-Kun massif by now will be eclipsing the sky along with the other presences of Zanskar range. A few other prominent villages that lines this way are- Sankhoo, Panikhar, and after Tangul, village Parkachik. Life in the Suru Valley with its little primary schools, farmlands, and houses with views to die for is endearing. As we move along towards Tangul, the vision of Nun-Kun magnifies, the details of them revealing.

In Tangul, by the end of the roadhead, we will pitch our first tent in the expedition.

Day 5-Day 6:- Tangul to Base Camp / Acclimatization

The first day of trek is scheduled for 5-6 hour from Tangul to the base of the Nun-Kun massif at 4600 m. The path is free of snow but the experience of the weather will be biting cold. The challenge of today will be our first tryst with heavy load carriage and setting up facility at the base.

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 such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

Physical Fitness: Ensure your child is physically fit. Engage them in regular exercise, outdoor activities, and hikes to build stamina and endurance. Hydration: Emphasize the importance of staying hydrated at high altitudes. Encourage your child to drink water regularly, even if they don't feel thirsty. Proper Nutrition: Provide a well-balanced diet with sufficient carbohydrates for energy and foods rich in iron to prevent altitude sickness. Adequate Sleep: Ensure your child gets enough sleep in the days leading up to the trek. Quality rest is crucial for altitude adaptation. Educate on Altitude Sickness: Teach your child about the symptoms of altitude sickness, such as headache, nausea, and dizziness. Encourage them to communicate any discomfort immediately. Appropriate Clothing and Gear: Dress your child in layers to adjust to changing temperatures. Ensure they have appropriate trekking gear, including sturdy footwear. Positive Mindset: Foster a positive mindset. Encourage your child, and let them know it's okay to take breaks when needed. Medical Check-Up: Schedule a medical check-up before the trek to ensure your child is fit for high-altitude activities. Consult with a healthcare professional about any potential health concerns.

TTH takes special care to provide wholesome and nutritious food for children on treks. Here are some of the foods that are typically served for children:
Breakfast: For breakfast, TTH serves a variety of options like porridge, cornflakes, bread, butter, jam, honey, boiled eggs, omelettes, and pancakes. Children can choose from these options to fuel themselves for the day's trek.

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.

2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.

3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.

4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.

5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.

6. Research the trail: Read about the trail to get an idea of the terrain, altitude, and difficulty level. This will help you select a trek that is suitable for the beginner.

7. Consult with an expert: If you are unsure about which trek to choose, consult our trek expert Mr. Nitin (+91 70600 59773) between 10 AM to 6 PM (Tuesday - Friday). Mr. Nitin will provide you valuable advice and guidance.

Overall, it is important to choose a trek that is enjoyable, challenging but not too difficult, and suitable for the beginner's fitness level and experience.

It is not recommended for a beginner to choose a difficult Himalayan trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally challenging, especially if you are not used to the high altitude, steep slopes, and rugged terrain. Choosing a difficult trek without the proper experience, fitness level, and preparation can be dangerous and put you at risk of altitude sickness, injury, and other hazards.

If you are a beginner, it is recommended to start with an easier trek and gradually build up your skills and experience. This will help you understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and also prepare you physically and mentally for a more difficult trek in the future. It is also important to choose a trek that matches your fitness level, experience, and interest.

There is no specific age limit for a beginner trekker. However, it is important to consider your physical fitness, health condition, and personal interests before embarking on a trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally demanding, and requires a certain level of physical fitness and endurance.

If you have any pre-existing medical conditions or are above a certain age, it is recommended to consult with a doctor before embarking on a trek. It is also important to listen to your body and take breaks as needed during the trek to prevent exhaustion or injury.

We recommend visiting our "Suggest Me a Trek" page. By filling out the form, our experts will contact you with the best possible trek options based on your preferences and experience level. Alternatively, you can reach out to us via email at info@trekthehimalayas.com or give us a call using the numbers provided on our website for personalized assistance and recommendations.

Yes, you can join the trek. We have fixed departure groups where you can simply book your trek and we will take care of curating a group.
