Backpacking in Ladakh - Indian Himalayas - 2016

Ladakh is situated in the far North of India in the shadow of the Great Himalaya Range and as such has closer cultural ties with Tibet than with the lower regions of India. It offers superb trekking in a high altitude desert environment ranging from 2500 to 5000m, and although remote there is a tourist trekking infrastructure centred around the capital city Leh.

In September 2016 we spent three weeks in the region and completed two treks, the popular 'Markha Valley Trek' and the more remote Lamayuru to Chilling.
