Biking

The Markha Valley is one of the most beautiful treks in Ladakh.  This easy access trek provides a unique endangered and rare Himalayan wildlife, high passes and ancient Buddhist villages that are still linked to the outside world only by trails. You will get glimpses of traditional, Ladakhi village life and be met by hospitability and friendliness along the way, before entering into the rough wilderness that surrounds the two high passes on the trek.

Chilling
The valley of Sham, in the lower part of Ladakh, is celebrated for its beauty and richness during the harvesting season. This trek follows the old caravan route to Lamayuru, which diverges from the Kargil� Leh road at the Phatu La. According to legend, Lamayuru was once a lake, which miraculously disappeared by the hand of LotsawaNaropa. The monastery at Lamayuru, built in the 10th century, is one of the oldest in Ladakh, and belongs to the Kargyu sect of Tibetan Buddhism. This trek offers not only view of the many natural beauties of Ladakh, but also some of its most famous monasteries and the traditional lifestyle of the natives.
