Hello and Jullay ...
... my name is Sonam sTopgays. As a real Zanskari I'm working in tourism since 1974 when Ladakh and Zanskar were opened to turism. During all this time I collected so many experiences in working as a trekking guide and as a mountaneering guide.
In January 1977, I was lucky to work  with Mr. James Crowden. With my uncle Dorjen Tsering, we organized his winter trek on tChadar. He was the first western scholar to walk from Nimmu to sTongde.
Then many more clients asked my experience, but first you can read the pages where Mr. Crowden wrote about my uncle and me in his book. You can read more lectures in the Press Room.

Sonam Adventure Trek and Travels was thrn established in 2007 with a view to deliver professional, streamlined adventure tours in the Himalayas after I led numerous expeditions and treks in the Ladakh and Zanskar Himalayas for over thirty years. It was then getting together an experienced team comprising of local guides and camp staff. Today after having personally reconnoitred all the areas that we planned to operate in we made sure that everything was conducive for our tours. Ever since we started operations our main objective was to promote local tourism and generate employment for local residents so that they and the valley benefit economically. All our staff comprise of locals possessing extensive knowledge of the regions' traditions, customs and interesting legends. They are all well trained and experienced and have successfully led numerous tours and expeditions to different Valley of Ladakh and Zanskar.
