One of the most exhilarating treks in the Ladakh region, Markha Valley happens to be the largest valley in the region. Kashmir is undoubtedly the heaven on the earth and is one of the most sought tourist places in North India. Leh tops the list of most desired adventure hubs which is quite popular for its arid and raw thrills and the gateway to the burned-out trails.
Leh is the starting point of this adventurous trek and this adds more point to your adventurous journey as you get to explore the Buddhists monuments in Leh. You will be amazed to traverse through the tiny hamlets as you gain height. The trail goes through the dry regions but Markha, Indus, and other water streams come your way. One gets to witness a huge variant of treasured fauna, snow leopard, argali, mountain sheep, rabbits, and other Himalayan hospitals when you pass through the Hemis National Park.
This 5 days long challenging and physically taxing trek with steep ascents and descents from two passes, several stream crossings, and some hours-long walk is recommended to all age groups but mainly for the experienced trekkers. Each day of Markha Valley Trek is exciting in its way and reveals awe-inspiring views concealed behind the mountains.
