about trekking at markha valley

Imagine Trekking at Markha Valley? Stretches of landscape devoid of human population, surrounded by Himalayas and Karakoram, two of the highest mountain ranges in the world, simply calls out for exploration on foot. Attracting a lot of adventure seekers every year, the mountains of Leh promise exciting opportunities of trekking, rock climbing and rappelling. A dry, rugged terrain, steep mountain slopes and deep valleys sum up Leh and if the idea of trekking in such a place excites you, hop on to the next flight. 

Trekking at Markha Valley takes you past Markha river, through the groves of willow speckled with wild roses, with canyons stretching sky-high in the backdrop. Considered to be of moderately to challenging difficulty level, Markha valley trek involves the crossing of three passes- Stok la, Kongmaru and Gandla, in addition to camping at the base of Mt. Kang Yatze, towering at the end of the valley. 

Be aware that you will have to carry sleeping bags, food, fuel and tents on your back to Trekking at Markha Valley. It is advisable to trek only in groups as venturing on this arduous, 12 day trek alone is a risky affair. As the path steepens, the air will get thinner and the weight you are carrying heavier. Expect muscle aches, shortness of breath and altitude sickness, but the landscape you make your way through is all worth the fatigue and aches that eventually lodges in your bones.
