I camped just short of the village of Rumbak in Hemis National Park. Camping in winter there is a great experience as long as you're ready for the cold. Overnight it got down to -25c but the Austrian Army issue down sleeping bags did the trick. We were also fortunate enough to spot 3 snow leopards while here. A mum and 2 cubs attacked a heard of blue sheep. A sight I'll never forget.

Hemis monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in Ladakh and has existed before the 11th century. It is further down from Tiksey monastery on the Leh- Srinagar road and about 45 km from Leh. Hemis monastery also has a museum as part of its complex which is worth visiting. It has many statues of Buddha in various forms including Maitreya, Tara, etc. There are a number of temples and prayer halls as part of the monastery. The one which fascinated me most was the one dedicated to and with a statue of Lord Padmasambhava ( Guru Rinpoche), believed to be a reincarnate of Buddha. The annual Hemis festival honouring Padmasambhava is held every year.

I went trekking on my own, leaving from Hemis all the way to Dat. Landscapes are gorgeous and you feel absolutely alone and into the wild. Few possibilities for food (shang sumdo, chogdo, nimaling and then nothing!). You will find water all along the way.

During winters snow leopards descend down for hunting in search of their prey. It is the best wildlife outing in Ladakh.
