Markha Valley Trekking
Trip Info
Duration: 11 Nights / 12 Days
Destination: Delhi - Leh - Kongmaru La - Nimaling - Hankar - Markha - Chalok - Ganda La - Rumbak - Leh - Delhi

Since 1974, when Ladakh first became accessible to foreign visitors, this high and arid region has captured the imagination of adventure travelers. Many scattered high villages, each with irrigated fields of barley and potatoes, add color to this otherwise quite barren environment, and provide the chance to meet the Ladakhi peasants in the simplicity of their daily life. Markha will be an opportunity to visit the old monastery, famous for its paintings.
