At the distance of around 500 meters we can see the Parangla and the snow capped mountains all around. This had been the ancient trade route between Spiti and Tibet and Culture also flowed through this route. That is why Spiti is also called "Little Tibet". Even the Monasteries in Spiti have a touch of Tibetan art.

Day 5: Tumlay - Base of Parangla [5000 mtrs - 6 hours]

The Parangla trail from Spiti to Rupshu is a trekkers dream.

Today's walk is a steep descent through the Panlugui gorge. The majestic Panlugui summit stands towards the south of Parang la.

In the morning we walk through the Parachu valley and then suddenly the valley opens up and the landscape turns green, we enter the Chang Thang valley, Tibet's 600 miles wide and 15000 feet high northern steppes, inhabited by the Changpas, the up country pastoral community. The Changpa's have retained their nomadic glory in spite of harsh weather and continuing hardship. They live at the higher regions of the Changthan at height above 4500 meters. Their means of livelihood depend upon their herds of Yak, sheep, goat and horses with which they migrate from one pastoral land to another.

Within Changthan they can be spotted by their Ribose [Black yak hair tents]. Changpas are warm hearted. They prefer to sleep by the side of their flocks right in the open even in winters when the temperature is almost 40 degrees minus centigrade to guard their animals from preying animals.
