Markha Valley Trek

Markha Valley Trek has been the most popular trek in Ladakh for many years now, and rightly so. Some of the reasons that contribute to its popularity are: one gets to climb on top of two very high passes, Gandala la (4800 m) & Kongmaru La (5150 m) offering stunning views from the top; the quaint hamlet of Markha which is nothing less than an oasis in this cold semi arid terrain of Ladakh; One gets to hike through remote gorges and vast undulating grazing grounds, cross several streams & rivers; and get a very up close and personal experience of the Ladakhi culture and way of life. it is a perfect combination of beautiful trans-himalayan landscape with ladakhi villages. There are good chances to spot some high altitude wildlife as well as experience the life of nomadic families as they herd their yaks in these big and beautiful valleys. After couple of days of acclimatisation to high altitude in Leh you will set out to explore the heartland of the central Ladakh Valley. It involves crossing of high pass of Kongmaru La 5274 mts and walking on the banks of the Markha River crossing it a few times. Kang Yatse peak (6400m) at the head of this valley dominates the skyline as we get higher up the valley and the view towards Zanskar range from the Kongmaru La is simply are mesmerizing.
