Day 05 - DUNG DUNG CHAN LA BASE ・CHILLING 3550M (5 HRS) ・LEH

We will begin the day with a straightforward climb to Dungdung Chan La (4820m), which offers views of the beautiful vistas of the Stok Range in the east and the Zanskar Range in the south.
 
From the pass the trail gradually descends down a ridge toward the valley continually tapering before reaching the village of Chilling.
 
Chilling is the only village in Ladakh that has provided metalworks such as copper, bronze, tin, silver and iron to the Leh market through the centuries.
 
From Chilling we will drive for about 3 hours along the Zanskar River .
 
We will eventually reach its confluence with the Indus and the easy road back to Leh.
