Reviews for Trekking holiday in Ladakh, The Markha Valley trek


review 16 Oct 2011

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The extra trek up to the glacier where we had a fab view. Every amazing view of endless mountains. The cultural elements were great too and a brilliant way to acclimatise safely.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Listen to your leader and drink plenty of water to avoid altitude sickness. Don't do too much when you first get to Leh in order to acclimatise properly. Enjoy the views!!!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

Local guides were used - we also saw the benefits from the different projects including solar panels and water treatment.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good - enjoyable trek which is not too tough with lovely mountainous views, off the beaten track. Leh is a lovely town to start in and you feel you learn about the culture, particularly Buddhism. Don't expect lots of snow peaked mountains, as these are not the Himalayas, but gorgeous none the less! A great way to trek in the mountains without a load of other tourists!
