Shingo to Skyu. It's a day of descent. Skyu is the entry point of Markha Valley. Over night in home stay again.

Nimaling to Shjang via Kongmaru La pass. The second of the tall pass we cross today to end the trek and spend the night at Shjang. Trek ends , we party.

Day 9

Take early morning bus back to Leh. Get on our ways with smiles and memories!

Let me know whoever is interested. The cost of the whole trek is 12000 inr. The ladakh homestay has fixed price of stay and food included. The transport cost is also included in the price from Leh to back.
No travel agency is involved. It is an independent guided trek by me. I am a licensed mountaineer myself.
Let me know those who are up for adventure!
