Markha Valley is one of the most popular treks in Ladakh during the summer months. Winter in this valley is a completely different experience, a stark contrast if one can say. The mountains are under a layer of snow, the trees have shed their leaves and the river is flowing gently, at times under the frozen layer of ice. This trek is as much about the incredible views as it is about experiencing the winter life of the local villagers. We stay with them in their warm homes and see how they have mastered the art of thriving and living happily in some of the harshest conditions. Winter is also a great time to see wildlife of Ladakh upclose as they all come down in search of food, you might even get to see the snow leopard if you are lucky!

Once served as a transit area for traders on the silk route, Nubra Valley, is now a must visit place for any trekker. With its sand dunes to double humped camels and from extravagant river valleys to its lush green barley fields, it is truly a delight to every eye. Driving across the Khardungla, highest motorable pass our route takes us to the heart of the Nubra valley, Hundar, near to the Diskit monastery from where we start our trek. Walking through breathtaking gorges and large meadows of the Nubra valley, our trek passes through Lasermo La (5400m), an eternally snow bound pass connecting Nubra and Indus Valleys.

A classic trek to a spectacular 6000m peak in Ladakh.

Kuari Pass is probably the best window to view the high Himalayan peaks. The views are simply breathtaking with the Himalayan giants lined up in one magnificent arc easily making it one of the most wonderful views in the Himalaya.
The Chadar walk isn’t called the ‘wildest trek in the world’ for nothing. It’s a primal trek on the Zanskar river, which is sheathed in ice each winter. We walk on ice, traverse across the gorge walls where the river thaws, and bed in caves that have been used by local travellers over centuries. Legends, history, culture and magical landscapes are an everyday affair on this walk, which is possible only during a window in the coldest months of winter. The trek follows an ancient trail used by the Zanskaris during the days of the Silk Road, when they walked this frozen highway all the way to Leh with wares they would trade for essentials. For those looking for adventure, action and bragging rights, nothing can hold a candle to the Chadar trek.
This is a great small trip for people looking to just enjoy their time in the outdoors with some awesome forest topped with some stunning Himalayan scenery.
Miyar, is a very remote and fairly inaccessible valley at the extreme western corner of the large district of Lahaul and Spiti, in the state of Himachal Pradesh in India. Starting in Miyar valley, the trek to Kang La (pass) involves traversing over the 24 km long Miyar glacier and a climb up to 5450m. This pass forms the route to cross over into the Zanskar Valley which lies north of the Great Himalayan range.
Kuari Pass is probably the best window to view high Himalayan Peaks all lined one after the other in one magnificent arc. The Kuari Pass (3,650m) lies in the heart of Chamoli district of the Garhwal Himalayas. The 6-day trek passes through dense oak, pine, rhododendron, deodar and fir forests, and traverses several high alpine meadows.
