General Information About MARKHA VALLEY TREK

The Markha Valley name comes from a tributary of the Zanskar that flows somewhere between the Stok and Zanskar Mountain range. The Markha Valley Trekking is certainly one of the most varied and beautiful treks in the Ladakh Himalaya. After the initial period of acclimatization to high altitude in Leh you will set out to explore the heartland of the central Ladakh Valley. It involves crossing of the passes – Kongmaru La 5130 mts, Gandla 4875 mts and walking on the banks of the Markha River. The highlight of the trip is the camping at the base of the Kang-Yatse peak on the plains of Nimaling. A few days later the trek ends at the wonderful Hemis monastery, with its warm austerity welcoming you back to a gentler and familiar world.
