Hi there,

I want to trek independently in Zanskar from Lamayuru to Padum and then continue south to Darcha.

From the previous posts on TT it seems clear that this trek is perfectly feasible as a homestay one, no need to carry a tent or cooking stuff.

I 'm still doubtful whether a guide is still necessary or not, but i would assume that he can be useful not only for route finding but also for better interaction with local people and culture. Correct?

I'd like to organizing everything once in Lamayuru ( ponies, provisions, etc.).
Do you guys have any contact with local men or even trek agencies there which may help me?

I'm looking for a trek companion to share costs and experiences on this trek.
I'm a backpacker traveller and fairy experienced trekker just back from a couple of long treks in Nepal.

I can be in Leh around 18th/19th july.
I would love to start the trek as soon as possible.

I'm interested to trek also in Markha Valley on the 8 days classic trek, this would be the perfect warm-up for the longer and more challenging Zanskar Trek.
If there's anyone keen to join me also in this one, i will be more than happy
