The Ladakh: The Markha Valley trip starts from and ends in New Delhi. It is a trekking tour that takes 14 days taking you through New Delhi, Yurutse, Skiu and 6 other destinations in India. Ladakh: The Markha Valley is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Ladakh remains one of the best places to experience the unique culture of the High Himalaya. As our trek follows the Markha River, we discover a landscape where lofty peaks of the Stok, Matho and Zanskar Ranges tower above picturesque Ladakhi villages and verdant valleys below. From the highest pass, the Gongmaru La (5200m), we enjoy incredible views extending as far as Tibet, before descending to Hemis, Ladakh’s largest and most famous monastery.
