Need information and help on Ladakh trekkingHello,
I am planning a Ladakh trekking in August probably from 5th to 24th. I will first trek Markha valley and move on to Stok Kangri climbing. For the Markha valley trekking, can I hire only a guide with dongkey to carry my camping equipment? I would like to cook by myself and sleep in my tent.
Could you suggest a reliable trekking agency for my trip?

2By surfing this forum I read many suggestions that it is better not to book with trekking agency in advance because it is too expensive, but to arrive Leh first and then to look for a proper agency.
Do you think I can find proper service and/or companion after I arrive at Leh on August 5?
For Markha valley trekking, I would like to do semi-autonomous trekking. I mean by that I use my camping equipment for eating and sleeping but sometimes I want homestays on the way. Therefore, I would need only a horseman with donkey for this trekking.
For Stok Kangri mountaineering, I think I have to rely on professional guide and camping with cook.
I would appreciate your advice or recommendation.
