Parang La is an ancient traditional trade route which connects Spiti Valley, Tibet and Changthang in Ladakh. It is located at an elevation of 18,373 feet above sea level. It stands as one of the most unexplored and remote locations in the Indian part of the Himalayas, which makes this trek quite unique. It has quite a dynamic trail which takes you through varying landscapes. You begin in the lush green meadows and across the tree line, from the deep gorges and desert environment of Spiti Valley to the vast landscape of Ladakh. The trek takes you to remote locations covered in snow, to vast plains which were once sea beds and home some unique fossils to vast glaciers, and some more.
