Trekking in the Markha Valley is a rewarding experience, both physically and culturally.

Trekking in the Markha Valley is a rewarding experience, both physically and culturally. You travel to the country of mane walls, praying flags, high passes, unique animals, and strange shear canyons as you go on this fascinating adventure.

On this particular trek, you’ll have the opportunity to see wildlife that is seldom found on the Tibetan Plateau, such as snow leopards. Regardless, the valley is home to numerous species, such as the Tibetan grey wolf, Ladakh wolf, Blue sheep, Argali (a type of goat), Ladakhi Urial (a type of sheep), Dhole (a wild dog), Arghali (a kind of goat), Ladakhi Urial (a type of sheep), Marmot, and Mountain hare. One may also engage in bird watching on this trail in Ladakh.

The Markha Valley Trek takes you to several villages that are off the beaten path, such as Rumbak hamlet, Yurutse, and Markha, where you have a glimpse of the fascinating Indo-Tibetan heritage. One may also have the opportunity to spend time in one of these isolated communities while staying in a homestay.

Other trails in the Ladakh region will take you to two famous Buddhist temples in the area, Lhota and Mani. To begin the trek, one ascends to the Kongmaru La, a peak situated at 5100 metres. A stunning panoramic picture of the towering high Kang Yatze Peak and the border with Tibet is available.
