Markha Valley in detail

Planning Tips

Advance Planning

In high season and in good weather, finding the route is usually straightforward.

It's worth carrying a spare pair of backed sandals for river crossings, which can be a little over ankle deep. Currently there are just two such points (either side of Markha) but these change after every spring's high water.

Warm clothes for the night at Nimaling camp (4850m) are essential.

Yurutse, Rumbak and the entire Markha Valley fall within Hemis National Park.
