  • Snow treks in Ladakh

    Snow trekking in Ladakh is an absolute spectacle. As soft white snow blankets the landscape of Ladakh, the temperature drops many points. While most of these treks are active throughout the year, the winter brings in more exquisiteness and a host of exciting experiences. The Chadar trek in Ladakh is the most well-known and is on every adventurer to-trek list. Here are snow treks Ladakh, you can’t afford to miss.

    1. Chadar trek

    The Zanskar river winds through the rocky gorges of Ladakh and is a prime spot for whitewater rafting in the summer. The Chadar trek in Ladakh is held on the frozen river when the ice resembles a sheet. Trekkers will walk along this frozen river, camp on the ice and trek past towering waterfalls that are frozen in mid-flow. As you trek you’ll witness breath-taking views of the majestic snow-clad peaks, hanging icicles, surreal landscapes, bleached rock faces, and weather-blackened trees. It’s one of the top snow treks in Ladakh.

    2. Stok Kangri trek

    This snow trek in Ladakh takes you into the misty heights of Stok Kangri, the highest peak in the Himalayas that can be completed without mountaineering experience or technical training. At 20,182 feet, Stok Kangri is the highest mountain in the Stok range of Himalayas, Ladakh. From the top, one gets absolutely stunning views of the Zanskar river, the Karakoram range, Saser Kangri Peak, Indus Valley and Leh city. It is a great choice for snow trekking in Ladakh because it can get very hot while trekking in the summer. This snow trek in Ladakh is ideal for moderately experienced trekkers who have some experience with treks over 13,000 feet. Climbing to the summit of Stok Kangri involves negotiating a steep slope covered in scree, and walking over a sharp rocky ridge.

    3. Markha Valley trek

    If you're looking for dramatic landscapes and a unique adventure, the Markha valley is a great snow trek in Ladakh. The trail takes you through enchanting villages with ochre mud houses and Tibetan Buddhist heritage, all located in the stark Ladakhi desert. You will camp at beautiful campsites at night, and spend days exploring the deep gorges, huge canyon walls, jagged peaks and earthy colours of Ladakh.

      Pathetic experience. They are broker they dont do anything . These guys just do the tie up with local treakking group who are responcible for all the activitites. They tie up with cheaper treakking group and they provide worst quality of food, worst tent, worst and dirty sleeping bags .

      The coordinators are extremely helpful. They go to extra lengths for helping you in figuring out where do you want to go and will be there with you at every step whenever you need them. Amazing service, I wanted to book a last minute ticket, I didn't think I'd get any good treks, but they sorted me out. Highly recommended.

      TGN has a very sophisticated and concise web page along with many optional details and information. This is one of the few sites that provides information about the operator. All the operators they recommend are safe, well-trained and reliable. They are easily accessible and offer reasonable deals. I've booked a trekking and river rafting trip with them already, and it was a very good experience. I'll always choose The Great Next to plan my adventure trips.

      'I went on a trek to Brighu lake booked through The Great Next. The tour operator was Bikat Adventures. The trek was well organised and booking through ''The Great Next'' gave me a lot of ease in making payments, getting confirmations and booking my bus tickets. It was a group trek of 15 people, and we had an enjoyable experience with the operator. The pricing was apt, food was good and operator was responsive to our concerns during the trek. Although I had many options to choose from for the trek, I booked Brighu Lake as it seemed to be a lush green trek with beautiful views. The website gives us a lot of options to choose treks and the sales team knows and is able to guide us well in deciding what trek we should take up. Lucky to get in touch with ''The Great Next'' who can handle my upcoming trek requirements as well. Thanks a lot The Great Next team for your support.'
