When you and your loved ones plan to avail of the best flight deals to India then a great destination would be to visit the mountain region of Ladakh in Northwest India. Also known as “Little Tibet”, Ladakh is famous for being in one of the highest places on Earth as it is situated in the borders of the Himalayan mountains and bounded by the mighty Karakoram range on the other side. It is visited by tourists for its Tibetan monasteries and is a very popular trekking hotspot.
Thus, summer temperatures rarely exceed about 85 degrees but winter temperatures can plummet to -20 degrees in Leh! Trekking in Ladakh is a rewarding experience and made tough mostly due to its high average altitude.The Markha Valley trek is one of the most beautiful in trekking in Ladakh which includes an exciting crossing of the Zanskar River by trolley or Jola Bridge at the village of Chiling. It leads through several villages in the Sham and Markha valleys and passes by many chortens and mani walls. The beautiful valley of Markha is overshadowed by many spectacular peaks, Stok Kangri (6123m) and Kang Yatse are the most notable. The trekking route crosses the high and wild pass of Kongmaru La (5150m), the highest point on this trek.

We end at Hemis and Leh, home to the most famous Monastery of Ladakh.
