If u guyss really want to enjoy and know what treckking actually is... One should go for trecks in ladhakh... this area of India is full of trecks..... here we go for some of the famous trecks in Ladakh....


1.Markha Valley Trek, Ladakh



  • The beauty of this trek is the sheer amount of Ladhaki/ Tibetan culture one comes across on the way. The local tribes with their yaks make for picturesque settings against the multi-coloured Tibetan flags, clear blue skies and barren ground, as you trek along the Markha River through Little Tibet. Set at an altitude of 5,200 metres, the 80-kilometre trek is best undertaken in August or September, and can extend from 10 days to two weeks.

LAdakh continue....

2.Chadar Trek, Ladakh



  • If you've had enough of trekking over rolling glades or mountainous peaks, try walking over a frozen river next January. The frozen river Zanskar (also called Chadar that literally means sheet) situated in the Zanskar Valley presents an intriguing yet challenging trek, extending across 105 kilometres at extremely low temperatures (-25 degrees at night). The swiftly flowing river freezes over only in the months of January to February, and can prove an arduous obstacle to cross: one has to climb over icy rocks, and sleep in caves at night. The view combined with ice sheets that constantly change colour however, makes it an unparalleled experience.

3.Lamayuru Trek, Ladakh



  • Playing host to one of the oldest monastries in Ladakh, Gompa (built in the 11th century), Lamayuru at over 5,000 metres holds a certain mystic allure. It has become one of the more popular treks in Ladakh commencing from Zanskar. Situated between Kargil and Leh, it is one of the tougher treks and requires at three weeks to undertake. Trekking season commences from June till mid-October.

Trekking in Ladakh: Ladakh Travel Guide

Introduction




Leh Ladakh is counted among those few destinations which offer an ideal setting for mountaineering and trekking. With its uneven terrains and picturesque views, Ladakh offers an exciting mishmash of scenic charm and challenging heights to adventure enthusiasts. But such virulent conditions have not shaken the determination of a traveler to avoid challenges posed by nature. Also it is very easy to find overnight accommodation in villages.

Maps
One of the major problems in this region is finding a good map. However, you can get a good quality foreign map (Olizane Map sections) from Ladakh Book Shop above the SBI ATM in Leh. It will cost you around INR 1000 to 1200. However, there are a number of locally published trekking maps available in Leh, which can be purchased for Rs. 200.


Prerequisites for Ladakh Trekking
If you are trekking in the areas around Nubra Valley and Tso Moriri, you’ll have to get an interline permit. It can be obtained from any travel agent in Leh and costs around INR 100-200. In order to climb Stok Kagri, you require a permit from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF). It can be obtained at a price of INR 2000 and the office of the IMF is near Chanspa Road in Leh. In order to trek in the Hemis National Park, you’ll have to get issued a permit from the Dhaba below the Rumbak village. The cost of permits is Rs. 20 for Indian and Rs. 100 for foreigner. Technically speaking, the permit and approval is required all the peaks but Stok Kangri is the only one where you’ll get checked.


Seasons for Trekking
The best time for trekking in Ladakh is July and August. Since early September, there is a possibility for storms and snowfall. In February, you can attempt the demanding Chadar ice-trek. Much of its route is next to the frozen Zanskar River, crossing side tributaries on shaky snow bridges and camping in rock caves en-route. Also, trekkers require winter equipments and an experienced local guide.

Preparations for Ladakh Trekking


Since most trekking routes in Ladakh starts around 3500 meters, proper acclimatization is necessary to avoid Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). The best way to acclimatize is a 2 days rest. Other than that, you can acclimatize with baby treks or more tenure to the hardcore treks such as beginning from Lamayuru, Spituk or Martselang rather than Hinju, Photoksar or Zingchen.

There are basically two types of trecks in ladakh area....
1.Horse Treks
At high altitudes, carrying heavy stuff is very much exhausting much more than what people expect. Therefore, it is advisable to consider using pack horses as the accompanying horseman can play a double role ( including a guide). You can contact travel agents who’ll happily arrange packaged tours all inclusive of tent, guide, horses and food at a price of $ 35.


2.Homestay Treks
There are several popular trekking routes where several rural homestays and parachute cafes are located. They counteract the need of carrying significant supplies and camping gear. Available at a price of INR.400 on the basis of single and double sharing, these Homestays offer a sneak peek into the local culture.
