This is Ladakh’s most popular trek attracting about 60% of all trekkers. Its length, accessibility and variation of landscape have ensured its classical status. It can be walked anytime from mi June to mid-October providing there isn’t too much snow on the passes. You have to cross high passes to gain access into the Markha valley. Please allow enough time in your itinerary to acclimatize before each pass. beginning in Spituk helps because the altitude gain is not so rapid and after crossing the Gandala you descend to the lower end of the Markha valley. The scenery is stunning and very varied, you pass close to two of the most regularly climbed peaks in Ladakh. Stok Kangri and Kang Yatse and there is a good chance of seeing interesting wildlife.
