    Hi, I will travel to Ladakh on July 20th and I plan to return to Delhi on 14th of August since I fly back to the Netherlands on the 17th.

    I plan to do 1 or 2 trekkings, depending on which one and the time the trekking(s) take but I would prefer a trek of about 14-16 days. The treks I am most interested in are:
    - Rumtse via Tso Moriri lake to Kibber village in Spiti;
    - Hemis gompa to Tso Moriri;
    - Rumtse to Tso Moriri, maybe combined with the Markha Valley trek.

    These treks go through the Rupshu area of Ladakh, a wild landscape with few villages but with spectacular landscape. There is a good chance to meet nomadic people on the way.
    This is a link to one of the travelagents offering these treks:

    I travel alone and since all treks require at least 2 persons, my question is:
    Would somebody like to join me on a trek?

    As I wrote before, I arrive in Ladakh on Monday July 20. The first few days I need to acclimitize to the altitude and there is a monastic festival that week in Phyang, just ouside Leh, that I would like to visit.

    I hope to hear from anyone interested,

    All the best,
