The most popular in Ladakh, this trek traverses mountain passes to isolated villages and monastic settlements in the fantastically lit lunar landscape of the Markha Valley. The trail climbs past ancient monasteries to the pastel alpine meadows of Nimaling in the shadow of Kangyatze Peak. From here we ascend to the Kongmaru La (5,150 meters, the highest point on the trek) with its impressive views of the Karakorums and K2. The trail ends at Hemis where we spend the night and visit the monastery. We meet our vehicles in the morning for the ride back to Leh.
