Trek through the beautiful Sham Valley

The Sham Valley Trek was one of the loveliest treks we have been on. We trekked over the stark landscape as well as groves of fruit laden trees. Visits to the ancient monasteries at Likir, Rizong & Alchi give us an insight into the life of hardship led by Buddhist monks. We got to interact with the people and learnt a great deal about the local traditions and customs prevalent in these isolated mountains.
About - Sham Valley Trek
Also known as the Likir-Tingmosgam Trek or the Baby Trek because of the easy and mild trekking conditions, the Sham Valley Trek takes you through some of Ladakh's oldest monasteries and prettiest villages. This trek is one of the best ways to experience the Ladakhi life. Walk through some of the world's most spectacular sceneries - barren mountains, rock formations that stick out like pillars from the earth, crystal streams meandering through fruit-laden orchards and golden fields of barley- and watch breathless as the play of shadow and sun adds yet another hue to the landscape.
