Markha Valley Trekking is one of the most varied and beautiful treks in India. It ventures high into the Himalayas crossing two passes over 4575m. As it circles from the edges of the Indus Valley, down into parts of Zanskar. The trekking route passes through terrain which changes from incredibly narrow valleys to wide-open vast expanses.
Therefore, the Markha valley trek becomes more interesting in the ancient form of Buddhism that flourishes in the many monasteries. The landscape of this trek perches high atop hills. The trails fill with elaborate “charters”(shrines) and “Mani”(prayer) walls. That further exemplifies the region’s total immersion in Buddhist culture.
As we trek to the upper end of the Markha Valley, we will get a chance to see rewarding spectacular views of jagged snow-capped peaks before crossing the 5150m Kongmaru La (Pass) and descending to the famous Hemis Monastery, where we end our trek. This trekking is most enjoyable for those who want to explore ancient Buddhism with beautiful views of the Himalayas. During the trip, we also get a chance to visit Rizong and Phyang Monastery. Rizong is a beautiful monastery that was built in 1840 by the Lama Tsultrim Nyma.
