Ladakh-Markha valley Trek

Ladakh Markha Valley Trek is known for the most popular hiking route because of its beauty. Ladakh is one of the driest regions in the Indian Himalaya. Our trip start from Delhi Shimla(the summer capital of British India), Manali (many mountain villages and apple orchards), Jispa (Buddhist culture), Sarchu (pass through mighty canyons), Leh (the capital of Ladakh,the second highest motorable pass in the world, Buddhist Gompas from Medieval period like Tsemo Gompa, Sankar Gompa and Leh Palace etc.),Markha Valley trek and end our trip in Delhi. Markha Valley trek lies in Ladakh The land of passes.

It is one of the most popular treks in entire Ladakh region, it is one of the amazing trips to get introduced to magical and remote Buddhist kingdom of Ladakh. The Markha Valley trekking is a memorable journey towards the Little Tibet to glorify the place with major attractions of peaceful Buddhist monasteries, mountain villages, high altitude pastures of Nimaling and high altitude peak- Kangyatse. After a visit to Stok Palace, where you can admire the old Thankas, jewelry, and religious objects, we start hiking with our guide and other crews. In the first part, we will follow the trail of Stok-la trek. We will have views of the dry and arid beautiful landscape.

You will witness the sloping landscapes, rolling creeks, and dry valleys, but always the view to the purple, gold and carmine mountains. you take in fabulous views of the Great Himalayan, Ladakh and Zanskar. After we pass the Ganda-La (4900m), we arrive at the beautiful Markha village that merges with its natural surroundings. The opportunity to meet nomadic families as they herd their yaks and a visit to a small monastery where butter lamps are lit morning and evening by an elderly nun leave indelible impressions of our journey through this gloriously illuminated landscape.

You will certainly gain respect for the Ladakhis, living their sober lifestyle in pure harmony with nature. After the gorges, we pass a little lake and enter the most beautiful valley of Ladakh (4700m) with the Kang Yazee dominant in the background 6400m. The last day leads us to the river and we pass a few Chortens before we arrive at Hemis. Hemis has one of the most beautiful Gompa.

Simply put “WOW”.

Simply put "WOW". I have never met more responsible people in my life. They made sure every step of the way was taken care of from the drivers, tour guides, trek guides, porters and hotel accommodations. I highly recommend this company for its hard working, responsible and friendly people. The people make a company. Special thanks to: Anuja "the planner", Chitiz & Ashmir "the ultimate trekking guides" and finally Robin "the enthusiastic jungle bird watcher".

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip!

Plan Holidays did a fantastic job on our whole trip! We did the trip that included time in Kathmandu, Pokhara, Chitwan National Park and a 5-day trek around Annapurna. From the moment we stepped off the plane, we had guides showing us around and everything was perfectly planned for us. Maila, our trekking guide was amazing and had so much knowledge! It was a great trip!

Incredibly well organized

This company was amazing. Incredibly well organized. I felt safe and spoiled. Our airport transports were always early and waiting for us. All of our reservations for our accommodations and busses were perfect. The temple tour we took was super fun and educational. Some of our luggage got stuck in our layover country and between this travel agency and our hotel they were able to get it for us and deliver it the next day. We also had a 10month old traveling with us and they made sure that our accommodation and travel plans were safe for him. During our 5 days of trekking, we had THE BEST guide/sherpa. I would positively let them plan another trip for us. Thank you!!!!
Karen Graves,

I had a wonderful experience

I recently booked a tour with Plan Holidays, and I had a wonderful experience. Anuja scheduled the tour, and it was comforting to have our trip covered without any concerns. Our guide Shiva took us through Kathmandu, and showed all us the highlights of the city and provided us with the cultural and historical background. We also did the Poon Hill Trek with guides Chitiz and Ashmir, who provided a peaceful hike through the Himalayas. On our last two days, we spent time in Chitwan National Park, where our guide, Robin, took us on adventures where we saw crocodiles and rhinos. The entire package was affordable, and our guides met our every need; they went out of their way for us on many occasions. It was comforting to get off the bus and see our guides waiting for us with our name tags. I would highly encourage anyone to book a trip through this company. I promise that you will have an amazing experience--five stars!
