Markha Valley, Trekking in Markha, Markha Valley Tour

Trekking along the Markha River through Little Tibet, one of the world's highest inhabited plateaus, we take in spectacular views of the Great Himalayan, Ladakh and Zanskar ranges. We'll cross two high passes at elevations up to 17,400'. Trails wind past willow groves, alongside patches of wild roses and through pastel canyons festooned with multi-hued prayer flags undulating in the breeze. The opportunity to meet nomadic families as they herd their yaks and a visit to a small monastery where butter lamps are lit morning and evening by an elderly nun leave indelible impressions of our journey through this gloriously illuminated landscape.Experience of a traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture undisturbed by the Cultural Revolution Ancient, yet active monasteries where monks go about their daily lives, and beautiful artwork enhances rustic interiors Trekking through one of the most remote areas of the Greater Himalaya in a landscape of plunging canyons and verdant river bottoms.

 

One can chance upon the Himalayan Blue Sheep, Ibex and, if you’re luckier then you can spot the rare snow leopard. The views are spectacular and towards the end of this trek one will be able to see the snow capped peaks of Tibet and the Karakorum Range of mountains.
