Ladakh is a paradise for trekkers with plenty of opportunities to fit all adventurers and nature enthusiasts. One can take a trip of 1 day to 1 month – walking, cycling, rafting, riding and touring, exploring the local life styles and culture. Trekking in Kashmir does not mean just walking over forested mountains as it combines nature and the local culture.
As the trekker climbs higher, the landscape changes. Chinar and poplar trees are replaced by fir, pine and oak, the alpine meadows and a profusion of colourful wild flowers. The simple villagers in the plains with their fruit orchards and paddy fields are replaced by migrant families of Gujjars, herdsmen who cross the high mountain passes with their cattle in search of greener pastures.
Some of the treks this season are:
Brief summary of the Location
13 nights and 14 days
Walking on Frozen River of Zanskar is an ultimate experience for the adventure lovers. The traditional name of the trek is “Chadar Trek” the frozen sheet trek, which was only way in and out for the people of Zanskar in winters when all other ways are closed due to heavy snow fall at high passes.
This is a trek into some of the most isolated yet inhabited regions in the Zanskar mountains, most notably the village of Lingshed. Trekking on ice, the frozen Zanskar River,on an average five to seven hours daily at an easy pace. But a reasonable degree of physical fitness is needed to sustain walking for nine days during winter conditions. View Package
|Markha Valley Trek
7 nights and 8 days
Markha Valley trek is becoming very popular as one can not only enjoy high mountain passes and arid Tibetan plateau, but expect accommodation in parachute tents at most of the villages enroute. Apart from the striking contrast of trekking in an arid cold desert valley, you get an outstanding view of Ladakh and Zanskar ranges, the 21,000 ft Kang Yissay and the 20,086 ft Stok Kangri peaks. The trek goes inside a beautiful Hemis National Park and involves two pass crossings- Gandala La (15748 ft) and Kongmaru La, (17,060 ft). Some exciting waist-deep river crossing sections on Markha River to trails going across interesting Buddhist villages and rocky canyons are some of the features that give this trek a unique fervor.
Leh, being very close to this trek route and a flight away from Delhi or other metros, this is much recommended trek every travel or trekking enthusiast should consider doing.View Package
