  • Trekking Map

    This is one of the most famous walks in the very popular region of Hemis National Park that Ladakh has to offer. With views of several 6,000 m mountains including Stok Kangri, you hike through green and colourful valleys. Along the way you are surrounded by barren mountain landscapes and wild rivers. You will cross the high passes Ganda La (4,980m) and Kongmaru La (5,280m).

    The trip begins with a good acclimatisation in Leh and surrounding areas. During the day there you can learn about the rich culture of Ladakh. The hike begins gently, until you reach the first pass Ganda La (4,980m). Beside the River Zanskar you will sometimes zigzag your way past small currents of water until you reach the village of Markha (3,750m) and then Nimaling (4,800m). The trek ends with crossing the Kongmaru La (5,280m), the highest point of the hike. There you will be rewarded with a magnificent view of the surroundings of the Zanskar to the south and the Karakoram in the north.

    Although this trek is suitable for beginners, a high level of fitness and good health, and excellent surefootedness are requirements.
