Discover India’s most remote and sparsely populated region – Ladakh! This desert-dominated mountain landscape is like nowhere else on Earth. Arriving in the area, you feel as if you have landed on another planet. Vast expanses of colorless, barren land, jagged razor-like ridges, and elaborate Buddhist monasteries. Trek for days between villages, lost in the beauty of this unique place.
Most treks in Ladakh start from Leh, the capital and administrative center of the region. Though the place has caught the dreams of more and more tourists over the years, the city retains its mysterious allure. Bask in the busy bazaar atmosphere, with colorful prayer flags canopying above the streets. The market is a trading post between western Tibet, Kashmir, the Punjab and other parts of India. Peruse the bright, bustling bazaar for some authentic handmade souvenirs.
It is recommended to take at least one day to acclimatize in Leh before beginning your journey. There is plenty to see during this time, like the famous palace towering over the city on a granite ridge, or Chamba Temple, the majestic hilltop Namo Tsemo Gompa, and much more.
Trek through wide rivers, walk past Buddhist monasteries that cling to dramatic cliffs, and traverse high mountain passes in Ladakh. The contrast in color, from brown ridges that meet deep blue lakes, and grey flats next to bright green valleys, are out of this world. Come trek in Ladakh and you won’t regret it!
As of now, we offer one trek in Ladakh – the Markha Valley Trek. The trail goes parallel with the Indus River, which lies on the other side of the Stok-Kangri Massif. Hike along the valley floor as well as high, snowy passes on the Markha Valley Trek. Within one week, experience a vast array of landscapes while staying in quiant, age-old villages. The trial is scattered with chortens and other signs of Buddhism, adding another level of charm to the already enchanted trail.
Find peace on the Markha Valley Trek. Listen to the sound of the wind winding through the valley, and the crunch of the rocks beneath your feet. Find yourself with a smile on your face throughout your days under the sun. Feel your mind become calm and fall deeper in love with the trail and your surroundings each day!
The best time to trek in Ladakh is during the rainy (monsoon) season (June to September), because the area lies in the rainshadow of the sky-high Himalayas.However, we do lead treks throughout most of the year.
