Markha Valley Trek

Markha Valley trek is an awesome 8-day trek amid cold desert that evokes both rustic thrill and excitement. It is a must-try for adventure enthusiasts and nature lovers!

It is a trekker’s absolute delight to walk the serene landscape of high-altitude grasslands and snow-prone high passes surrounded by cultivated valley floors, exotic flora and fauna, deep and shaved gorges.

It is a unique experience in itself as it provides a closer view of Ladakh’s lifestyle and culture while you walk amidst the little hamlets constructed in conventional style, dome-shaped stupas, and fluttering colourful Buddhist flags.
