Ladakh or the "land of the mountain passes" is an amazing region in the North of India, surrounded by the Karakorum on its north side and by the great Himalayas on its south. It borders Tibet, Pakistan and the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. The Ladakhi population maintains strong ties to the Tibetan culture in its ethnicity, clothing, cuisine, language, etc. The region preserves some of the most important Buddhist Monasteries in India.

We embark on a 12-day adventure through the remote valley of Markha, one of the most representative of Ladakh, small villages and whitewashed monasteries (gompas) covering the fertile valley is among others its signature. In these days of complete connection with nature, we will cross mountain passes above 5000 meters, high nomads grasslands (home of yaks) and will be soaked in the Ladakhi Tibetan culture once we get to know the kind local people. The highlight of the program will be the ascent to Stok Kangri, a 6153m peak in the heart of the Hemis National Park. It doesn’t required great technical expertise but from its summit the extraordinary Indo’s Valley will be at our feet and will distinguish the K2 and the Great Himalayas on the horizon.
