Classic Markha Valley Ladakh


Classic Markha Valley

One of the most popular treks in Ladakh – it is a perfect combination of beautiful Trans-Himalayan landscape with the 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 Kongamaru La is simply are mesmerizing.
