Today. It is a long day, crossing the high plateau of central Zanskar with superb views; we then turn away from Zanskar to ascend steeply past a wolf trap maintained by the Zangla villagers to the pass at 4430m, the desert like Namtse La. Then we descend through poplar and willow forest below a series of wind formed crags before climbing a small col marked by blue sheep horns, from where we can see the perfect camp, a plateau above a bend in the river; after setting up camp the crystal clear stream is perfect for a swim.

Day 18: Trek Bear valley camp 3980m
A shorter day today, following this remote valley; the trail is not always the best, so do make sure you have firm footing before you scan the valley sides for ibex; we have several exposed trails to negotiate, and an ice bridge to climb over or go under; the valley is rightly called a 'lost world' for both the weirdness of the rock formations and the wildlife. By early afternoon we should be in camp, again perfect for a swim in the beautiful rock pools near the camp.

Day 19: Trek Neraks 3710m
The ascent starts immediately after breakfast as we climb gently to a river junction rock hopping across streams. After an hour the steep climbing starts in earnest, first to a small pass, or rather saddle at 4000m, where we rest and look across the most amazing valley; dropping steeply below us to the left - to the right is our trail that traverses the top of the valley, crossing a stream with the last water before the pass, and beginning the climb in earnest towards the 4800m Takti La. As always with Himalayan passes, the idea is to go slow and easy, stop and take in the views, t Soon you turn a final corner and you see the prayer flags on the horizon with a spectacular panorama ahead, including our next few passes. If it is not too windy, we will lunch on top and string our prayer flags - then down! Its over 1000m to our camp in Neraks, the view gets more spectacular as we descend, looking down into the Zanskar gorge far below. After some seven hours on the trail Neraks with its surrounding barley fields come into sight, and soon we are in camp at this lovely village.

Day 20: Trek Yelchung 3900m
Another day, another pass or two. We descend first to the Zanskar river which we cross by a classic bridge; Then up again; a tight gully normally sprinkled with the vivid pink Zanskar rose, you can see the top shortly after you start the climb, After so many days on the trail, the 500m climb is not too tough, and from the top of the pass, the 3850m Cho Cho kauri la, we can see the trail switch backing around corners towards Yelchung; we lunch on a small plateau with amazing views back towards the Zanskar gorge, then will be in camp early afternoon. The village is one of the loveliest in Ladakh, the name meaning 'small kingdom' because of its isolation. As we descend into the village, to the right you can see the old monastery, which is worth a diversion; the new one is near our camp on a grassy platform in the village.

Day 21: Trek Singge valley camp 4430m
Today we ascend to the 5000m Singge La (Singge meaning 'lion') on good trails; after the first hour the pass comes into sight, a classic saddle far above. After two hours we reach the collection of rocky clearings known as Singge base camp. From here we rock hop an icy stream, then climb steeply until just over an hour puts us on top, a beautiful pass on which the monks from Lingshed monastery built a chorten some years ago. The horses normally pass us on top, then descend ahead of us in a beautiful camp far below.

Day 22: Trek Photoksar 4200m
An easier day today, with a trail that meanders along above the valley bottom, slowly making gentle elevation until we reach the small 4400m Bumiktse La; shortly after we begin the descent the beautiful village of Photoksar, probably one of the most photographed in the Himalaya, comes into sight and we descend opposite to a small camp upstream of the village.

Day 23: Trek Honupatta 3960m
We are coming to the end of our summer journey, ascending our last pass, the 4950m Sirsir La, another beautiful viewpoint across this lovely kingdom in the sky. After we reach the pass we descend slowly to the long spread out village of Honupatta; soon a road will be making its way up here, so time to enjoy the peace of a Himalayan valley.

Day 24: Drive to Leh 3500m
