This trekking tour brings you to famous Markha valley, then you will take a right turn just before you would reach the high plateau of Nimaling. Here you are going to cross Kongmaru-La pass (at 5,000 m) and enter nomad country. The landscape is changing right before your eyes. Markha valley is at a much lower level and we will hike from village to village. In Ruphsu-Kharnak the valley expands and the landscape becomes much softer. Villages are replaced in Changthang by nomadic settlements, either inhabited or not (depending on time of year).
This tour attractively combines two different worlds, two kinds of landscapes, two sides of Ladakh: Markha & Changthang. Exciting but also relaxing and calming, wild but also soft, two contrasts combined in one tour.
This is a pure trekking-package. But you will need a proper acclimatization before the start of the tour. Either you do that yourself or we organise you a programme that takes care of it. In any case we suggest a minimum of 3 days in/around Leh before the start of the trekking.
This tour is a high altitude trekking! It starts at “lower” altitude in the Markha Valley and raises day by day. Still you might have problems adjusting. Have a look on our tips to avoid altitude sickness!
