Trekking in Ladakh is a rewarding experience and made tough mostly due to its high average altitude.The Markha Valley trek is one of the most beautiful in trekking in Ladakh which includes an exciting crossing of the Zanskar River by trolley or Jola Bridge at the village of Chiling. It leads through several villages in the Sham and Markha valleys and passes by many chortens and mani walls. The beautiful valley of Markha is overshadowed by many spectacular peaks, Stok Kangri (6123m) and Kang Yatse are the most notable. The trekking route crosses the high and wild pass of Kongmaru La (5150m), the highest point on this trek. We also pass through the Hemis National Park, created to preserve the endangered snow leopard and other of the area's precious wildlife. We end at Hemis and Leh, home to the most famous Monastery of Ladakh.
