Trip Overview

Trekking along the Markha River through “Little Tibet,” one of the world’s highest inhabited plateaus, you will have the Great Himalayan, Ladakh, and Zanskar ranges. You will cross two high passes at elevations up to 17,400′. Trails wind past willow groves, alongside patches of wild roses, and through pastel, canyons festooned with multi-hued prayer flags undulating in the breeze. 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.

After the initial period of acclimatization to the high altitude in Leh, you will set out to explore the heartland of the central Ladakh Valley. It involves crossing of passes – Ganda-la pass/ 4848m, Kagmaru La/ 5274m, and walking on the banks of the Markha River. The highlight of the trip is the camping at the base of the Kang-Yutze peak on the plains of Nimaling.

Nepal is a nation between India and Tibet known for its temples and Himalayan mountains, which include Mt. Everest. Kathmandu, the capital, has a mazelike old quarter filled with Hindu and Buddhist shrines.

We did the 12-day itinerary trekking to Everest Base Camp. We booked it all from England and communicated with the owner Hari via email. Such a nice family that owns and runs this business. Very friendly and welcoming. We had loads of cups of tea with them in their shop in Thamel before and after our trek.
