Once in a lifetime kind of experience: Generally, I thought Leh and Ladakh were all about just biking, but I was totally taken aback when I took this trip. Firstly, kudos to the team for organizing this brilliantly well. Secondly, this is something that should be enjoyed as a group so I am glad that I came across this package. Overall, this was worth my time, and indeed this is one of my best vacations.

This is the trek, me and my 3 friends were looking forward for and finally got to complete it. The overall trek was an amazing experience for all of us. Fascinating views of the snow covered peaks, magical beauty of the valleys and the friendly trek staffs just made our journey awesome all the way. But yeah, one needs to be physically fit and also get acclimatized before starting the trek as the oxygen level is less in that altitude.

Overview

The Markha Valley Trekking expedition is one of the most diverse and attractive Himalayan Trek. It has gigantic rock pinnacles, beetling cliffs, slender defiles and prayer-flagged passes.This trek is easily accessible from Leh trip and offers a large diversity of landscapes. The green oasis of the Markha Valley is guarded by Kang Yatse (6400mts) from east and Zanskar range from the south west.

On the southern skyline of Leh, the stunning Stok Kangri Peak is perfectly suited to someone seeking for the first Himalayan summit. This Ladakh trek is easily accessible from Leh and offers a large diversity of landscapes. We visit some of the great monasteries at Thiksey. We will cross the Kongmaru la 5150 meters before Nimaling below theimpressive peak of Kang yatse 6400 mtrs. Approaching at base camp, we take a straight forward route to summit.

From any of the high points we can have tremendous views of the Karakoram Saser Kangri peak (7670mts), Stok Kangri (6150mts), Kang Yatse 6400mts and Nun Kun (7135mts.). During this trek we will go through many scattered high villages, each with irrigated fields of barley, wheat and mustard which adds brilliance to the landscape of this broken moon land, and Markha valley trek is a part of Hemis National Park, which also an opportunity of spotting wild animals.

    This is the trek where beauty and fascination lies in every turn. From the starting to the end, the experience has been awesome. Alongside the trek, the other offerings of the trek kept us engrosses in unlimited fun and excitement. Even the locals of this region are very friendly. The instructions and suggestions of the porters came handy in overcoming the hurdles and difficulties on the way.

    Okay, a big disclaimer is that this can be a tiring and dreadful trek, but if you have good pre trek workouts and strength training done Markha Valley Trek & Stok Kangri Peak experience can be the best you will have. The organization and planning for this can be really tedious. I’ve no words to explain how good this was planned and executed. Kudos to the dealers, trek leads, and the co-travelers for all the enthusiasm, planning, and co-operation. There weren’t much cons to mention here, however, this can be better with more enhancements. I will definitely recommend this one.

    Ten days of ultimate fun and excitement we had during this trek. Though a medium grade trek, at times it got bit tough for our group. Considering our lack of experience, we had to struggle a lot. But then, on completing the trek, all our hard works got rewarded with magical views of the towering peaks, untouched beauty of the nature and what not! Make sure, you don't overstress & overeat. Try to avoid these two and also listen to the trek guides and you will also have fun in this trek.

    Although, it all looks tedious from reading articles in the Web. This trek is quite moderate and anyone with some rock climbing knowledge and experience can take this trek. Taking this package was the best decision I made. It made the whole trek process lot more smoother and easier.

    Lot of people had told me covering just Leh for a week is not an interesting thing, but they were totally wrong. The Markha Valley Trek is sheer brilliance. No matter how tired you are from the trek you won’t stop being enticed by the beauty of nature.
