Leh is a trekker’s paradise and every adventurer’s dream destination for hiking and trekking. With precipitous peaks and long winding trails, Leh is the most sought-after trekking escapade. However, before embarking on any trekking trail, it is advisable to seek information and expert guidance from the locales as to the weather conditions, best time for trekking, supplies, as well as trekking tips and emergency helplines. Also, for trekking around the Nubra Valley and Tso Moriri, you will need to acquire the Inner Line Permit or ILP from a travel agent. Similarly, for Stok Kangri Trek, a permit needs to be secured from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation.
Famous treks in Leh include the Chadar or Frozen River Trek, which is a different world altogether. And while Markha Valley Trek explores the dry and barren valleys, the Great Lake trekking will take you across lush green lands, snow-peaked mountains, and exquisite flora. The Padum-Darcha trek is yet another marvel filled with picturesque hamlets and stunning monasteries. The Stok Kangri Trek, Lamayuru-Chilling Trek, Snow leopard trek and several others will test your appetite for adventure and excite your nerves to the fullest. Erring on the side of caution and being prepared for the exploration will not only make the venture safe, it will also ensure maximum thrill and gratification.
