Rumtse to Kibber is a long and challenging Trek that let you experience the life of Changpa nomads in the vast Tibetan plateau of Changthang. It focuses mainly on life of Nomadic people and wildlifee in the himalayas. This trek requires you to well acclimatize for at least 2 days Leh as the trekking region is on an elevation of 4000-5000m on an average. We will be crossing largely through the unhabited region of the plateau, crossing over three high passes of Kyamuri-la, Karse la and Yarlung la before we reach Korok, supposed to be one fo the largest Changpa/nomadic settlements, next to Tsomorir lake. From there we will be folloeing the ancient nomadic routes, crossing over Parang la (where Ladakh and Spiti valley is separated) reaching the Spiti valley, ending our trek in Kibber. Along the trek, we will see plenty of wildlife- wild ass, Tibetan Antelope, blue sheep, black necked cranes, bar headed geese, marmots, etc.
