The Markha Valley Trek is a wonderful adventure that can be embarked upon from Delhi, India's capital city. The journey from Delhi to Leh, the starting point of the trek, is usually done by air due to the distance and terrain.

It's advisable to plan the trek well in advance, considering factors like weather conditions, permits, and accommodations along the trail.

Embarking on the Markha Valley Trek from Delhi promises an unforgettable experience amidst the breathtaking beauty of the Himalayas.

Markha Valley Trek Best Time to Visit

The best time to visit the Markha Valley for trekking is during the summer months of June to September. During this period, the weather is generally favorable for trekking, with clear skies and moderate temperatures.

June to September is considered the trekking season in Ladakh region, including the Markha Valley. The temperatures during the day are comfortable for trekking, ranging from 15°C to 25°C in the lower regions of the valley.

It's important to note that the weather in the Himalayan region can be unpredictable, and conditions may change rapidly. Therefore, it's advisable to be prepared for sudden changes in weather and to carry appropriate gear for all conditions.
