13 DAYS in India
Ladakh situated at the western end of the Tibetan plateau and is often referred to as ‘Little Tibet’. It is still one of the best places to experience the unique culture of the high Himalaya.
The Markha Valley is by far one of the most beautiful valleys in Ladakh and a popular destination due to its proximity of its whole circuit to Leh. A varied trek across high passes with tremendous views of the snow capped mountains, gorges, arid landscape dotted with villages with their colorful fields of mustard and barley. These attractions make this trip a trekker’s delight to see its countryside as well as meeting with the locals and getting a good cultural insight.
