The 2012 Upper Zanskar traverse was an excellent adventure. We warmed up over the Shingo La, headed through a wild upper corner of Zanskar; visiting traditional Tibetan villages, and then began our exploratory of the Lingti region; via the Phirtse La. This trip our second double traverse of the Great Himalaya range for the summer, and a new 6000 meter peak under our belts. A well rounded trek and climb.
