Markha Valley Trek, Ladakh
Preferred Season: June - October

The Markha Valley trek traverses across the heart of the beautifully lush Markha Valley. The landscape is picture perfect- rivers meandering through the valley and tall bare peaks towering in the distance. Ascending the high altitude passes were exhilarating. We camped under clear, bejeweled skies in the chilly air as the land shimmered in the tender glow of the moon.
