It is one of the challenging trek connecting Spiti valley in Spiti, Himachal Pradesh to Pso Moreri Lake in Laddakh. Parang La trek is an ancient trade route between the Spiti in Himachal, Tibet & Changthang in Ladakh region. The trail takes you to a maximum altitude of around 5600 meters to Parang La & follows the Pare Chu river which goes to Tibet & re-enters India. The main attraction of the trail is the old yet dynamic mountain features which resemble a unique pattern of being under the sea for a long time & houses some of the unique fossils. The trail has vast meadows which were a grazing ground for horses from Spiti Valley. The most amazing part of the trek is the walk along the Tso Moriri Lake for complete 2 days where the lake offers different shades of blue with many unclimbed peaks in the background. The endpoint is Karzok village which houses one of the old & powerful monasteries. The trek offers everything, a seasoned trekker dream of. It’s challenging, it’s beautiful and unique programme, don’t miss it.
