MARKHA VALLEY TREK

The Markha Valley Trek is certainly one of the most varied and beautiful treks in the world. It ventures high into the Himalayas crossing two passes over 15,000 ft (4575 m) as it circles from the edges of the Indus Valley, down into parts of Zanskar, and passes through terrain that changes from incredibly narrow valleys to wide-open vast expanses. This valley is well known for its ancient form of Buddhism that flourishes in the many monasteries. These monasteries dot the landscape perched high atop hills. As you trek to the upper end of the Markha Valley you will be rewarded with spectacular views of jagged snow capped peaks before crossing the 5150m Gongmaru La and at the end of the valley resides Kangyatse the protector of this region.
