The Markha-Trek is one of the best known and most popular treks of Ladakh. For a good reason – as it is close to Leh and easy to reach and therefor cheaper. Another reason is it’s beauty and diverse landscape with pittoresque villages enroute.
Before we will start the trek we will visit the most beautiful monasteries of Ladakh.
During the trek we cross two passes – one slightly below 5.000m, one just above 5.000m. We camp in idyllic little villages, along rushing mountain streams, encounter with a bit of luck ibexes and wolves. But the snow leopards, shy inhabitants of the Hemis Nationalpark, will be not seen, as it prefers to live high up in the mountains during the warmer months.

Spoilt for choice – different routes
You can do Markha-Valley-Trek in different ways. The classic route lead either from Stok or Zhingchen (originally from Spituk – but the road has reached Zhingchen) til Shang Sumdo (originally it was Martsellang but also here the road has made the trek shorter).
In a shorter version you can start Markha Trek from Chilling. In a longer version you can even extend by heading to Matho Phu after crossing Kongmaru La and going all the way to Stok.
Additionally Markha Trek is a great acclimatization trek for an expedition up to a 6.000er – for example one of the few in Nimaling region or up to Stok Kangri. If you are ok with peaks below 6.000m there are several great options.
In the present version Markha Trek starts in Zhingchen and goes to Shang Sumdo, but we can modify/shorten/lengthen it according to your wishes.
The package can be lenghtened or shortened by several days (with sightseeings/jeep safaris/day hikes/rafting etc.).
Alternative Village Homestay
One can do Markha Trek without trekking team and tent camps as well. Meanwhile you have village homestays all along the way, where you can sleep and eat. An exception is Nimaling, but there is a big tent where overnight stays and food are offered. This version is only suggested for people that are ok with basic hygiene and simple foods. Since most Homestays are in farmhouses you might have occasional encounters with flees. Also one should not expect western standards for the rooms. It’s simple but cheap.
This tour can be booked individually or in a group
