Chamser Khangri

Chamser and Lungser Kangri (6634m & 6666m) situated at the eastern shore of Lake Tsomoriri, at the SE of Ladakh in the Rupshu region. The twin peaks are highest peak in Rupshu region. Karzok village is situated at the western shore of Lake Tsomoriri and also home of Changthang nomads, living in tents looking after their flocks of sheep, which produce finest Pashmina. After well acclimatizing in Leh we drive to Karzok. We trek to Peldo by following the western shore to eastern shore of lake and climb short to Skyurchu. The ascent to the base camp (5580m) on barren plateau is rather easy. The way up to ABC is on gravel with course of plates rather difficult to climb. Technically, the climb is not difficult, but its great challenge for physical strength and adventurous trekkers. After final ascent the impressive view of Lake Tsomoriri, Mentok Kangri and numbers of peaks rising above 6000-7000m. We descent to Karzok and continue our drive back to Leh via Mahe bridge along the Indus river.
