Zingzingbar

Lying at an altitide of about 4200 metre, this place is a part of the Leh- Manali Highway. It is here that you will find a road building as well as tea house. Many travellers and tourists, especially the ones who are on a road trip halt here to take some rest and sip on some steaming hot tea. The views of the surrounding siver- topped mountains look beautiful from here and you can simply spend hours here doing just nothing at all.

From this day onwards one starts to actually realise the total change in vegetation and climate. Zingzingbar is the base camp for Baralacha La and the climb is steady. Starting early means one can easily reach Patseo which is a minute settlement on the banks of Deepaktal, a small sized lake. Patseo actually being a total army settlement. The small parachute-tent at Patseo is a good spot for a break and a meal with a beautiful surrounding in the form of blue waters of Deepaktal. Beyond Patseo, the terrain drastically changes and one starts to notice the barren land surrounded by dry and arid mountains. In another 9 kilometres, one approaches Zingzingbar and once the last climb is made, the valley opens up for a beautiful and open camp site. Sleeping height at the Zingzingbar camp being 14,100 feet, the total height climbed in the day is roughly 3,300 feet. Total distance covered is about 40kms.
