Sky High Treks and Tours
Chiling to Shang (6 days)
This highly varied trek passes through the popular Markha Valley which includes several villages and some of Ladakh’s most spectacular landscapes. The only pass to cross is at the end of the trek on the final day. You can reach the start point at Chiling by jeep from Leh in 2-3 hours.

After trekking along the Markha Valley, the trail turns left at Nimaling and ascends slowly to Gongmaru La (5130m).

The views across to the Zanskar Range and over to the Ladakh Range are stunning and the trail down to the finish at Shang passes through a dramatic gorge where huge layers of rock uplifted by tectonic movement tower vertically for hundreds of meters in enormous jagged slices.

Campsites are well located and villages have supplies of food and drinks.
