    Nestled amidst the mighty Himalayas, Rangdum welcomes you with a big valley hug, marking the end of Suru Valley and the beginning of Buddhism of your journey from Kargil to Zanskar.

    Leaving the sound of Azan in Kargil, driving slowly on a rather bumpy yet a memorable road, you'll get the first sight of some Buddhist flags after about 100kms and that’s when you'll know you're close to Rangdum. You will be surprised when you will see it for the first time!

    This 200yr old Tibetan Buddhist monastery is the biggest attraction here. It is, although not one of the principal of the Ladak, definitely worth a stop if you're making a journey to Zanskar. It overlooks the valley from the top of the small hill surrounded by the river.

    Rangdum is a popular base for hiking. One of the treks lead to Henaskut, crossing the famous Kanji-La pass. The 5-day trek crosses the fabulous gorge towards the Kargil-Leh highway. For serious hikers, a tougher trek involves crossing the highly glaciated Chillung-La!

    Rangdum is not one of the well-connected places I have to stay. I mean there’s a reason why places are called off-beat and Rangdum’s access justifies it’s off-beat character. The best way to reach is to take your own vehicle or taxi from Kargil.

    There are a few good places to stay in Rangdum. Nothing beats the local homestays, but for those who like privacy can book their room in J&K Apline Hut which is right at the beginning of the village. There are a few restaurants serving north Indian and Tibetan food.
