MARKHA VALLEY TREK
Markha, a part of the Hemis National Park is a ‘must do trek’ in Ladakh and it will be all about breath-taking views of surreal landscapes, snow-capped mountains, and desolated fortress. One will be astonished to traverse through the tiny hamlets as you gain altitude.
Since the trail goes through Hemis National Park, all its treasured fauna, mountain sheep, Arghali, rabbits, snow leopards, Red Fox, Marmots, Ladakhi Pica, Lammergeier etc. can be spotted at every camping site. Markha being a splendid trek, our eyes will be busy encountering the diverse landscape of this place. Markha village is considered as the largest village, you can find numerous houses, scattered away. You will have to walk in the running stream of Markha river to reach to the Markha village. Surprisingly most of these villages has eco cafes run by the women self-help groups and one can savour the refreshing tea or coffee. One after another Sku, Hamurja, Markha, Hankar,and Nimaling settlements will be full of adventure.
A few minutes of walk from the Markha valley will put you near an ancient fortress. As the altitude rises and move towards Nimaling one will come across tranquil twin lakes. The trails enter into a huge grassland after a few fights crossing streams of the high altitudes. After a strenuous climb of 2 hours to Kongmaru La pass, you will be pleasantly welcomed by the Karakoram Range Mountains and the excellent array of peaks. The trail then gradually descends, coinciding with villages to say goodbye. The immediate trail from pass has steep and narrow gorge which later opens to Chikirmo village. Throughout the route, you can get indulged into the scenery of Indus valley and Ladakh range. After a gradual climb down and rocky terrain, you will reach Chokdo. This is the last stop of the entire trek, that also has many homestays.
