Markha Valley Tour
Duration - 14 Days
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. 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. It
is made more interesting by the ancient form of Buddhism that flourishes in
many monasteries that dot the landscape perched high stop the Hills. As one
trek to the upper end of the Markha Valley we are rewarded with spectacular
views of jagged snow capped peaks before cross the 16500 Ft. Gonmar La Pass
and descenting to the famous Hemis monastery where we end our Trek.
