Trekking is a magical feeling in a country like India, where all the four corners of the country are bestowed with dense mountains and icy terrains. Trekking is a combination of intense physical exercise and unique learning experience. This amazing adventure helps you connect with nature and also serves as a better way of learning. It helps you understand how much you can take for granted and how much needs to be appreciated. I have been a constant wanderer, when it comes to trekking; it rejuvenated by thinking process and makes me feel fresh and calm. Reaching the peak of mountain serenity, drifts away all negative thoughts and builds positive energy within you.

Located at an altitude of 5200m , with 80 km wide spread Markha Valley Trek can be best explored from August- September.
