Hi,

It's possible hiking from Lamayuru to Darcha in September without guides? There are lodges in the way to charge the battery of GPS mobile?

There are snow in the path in September?

It's easy find the path?

Thanks

Someone did it last year and made the headlines of papers here in Delhi. Not advisable though.

Welcome.

I am not being unpleasant, but if you are asking this sort of question you have not done enough research beforehand. I would start with a guidebook and then come back with specifics.

To answer you, yes, its possible if you can carry a full pack up to 5000 metres+ on days without a water supply so you have to carry it. I haven't done this trek for years but the path varied from 'obvious' to 'lost' in the same day. A guide would be essential for most of us.

There will be some lodges/truck stops now, especially since the road goes through most of it. Never rely on local electricity for electronics, it is often too weak. A solar power charger and a ravpower type are battery are better.

Snow is always possible in September especially on the passes - try navigating a pass-slope in snow with a heavy pack.......

In short, don't even think it.

With careful planning to avoid the road it should still be a great trek - guided, with back-up

enjoy
