I'd really like to do a trek when I am in Ladakh next week. I have three weeks in India, but I'll be moving from Delhi to Amritsar, then Jammu by land. I'll then fly to Srinagar and take a car to Kargil. I would also like to come back via Manali, so I reckon I won't have more than 4 or 5 days free to trek.
I think Markha valley is out of the question. Have you got any other itinerary to recommend? From Padum to Phugtal maybe?
Well, if on the contrary it's around Leh, I'll have a clearer idea of how many days I can spare...

4-5 day trek in Ladakh

What nice 4 or 5 day trek can you advise me to in Ladakh? Can you also specify the type of organization I need (eg. if independent or with guide) and gear?
I hear about what they call the Baby trek from Likir. What is it like?
How long can be the Markha Valley trek at the least?

An easy trek could be Lamayura to Chilling. It's 5 days from Leh. A bit expensive because of the transportation from Leh to lamayura and from Chilling back to Leh. About 30 euro a person a day( group of 2 or more)I can recommend Nomadic travel on the road to Changspa in Leh. Or trek by yourself Likir to T(h)emisgang and stay in guesthouses ( 3 or 4 days)Look it up at google.

Sham Trek - Baby Trek

Hi,

I did the Sham Trek / Baby Trek last month and really enjoyed it very much. You do not have to carry much gear at all because of the homestays in all the villages. Just carry your daily wtare needs as well as a small snack on the trek. The Markha Valley trek is at least 7 days. Haven't met anyone that did it faster than that.
To start the Baby trek you can either take a bus to Likir or do it the other way around and take any bus from Leh that goes to Lamayuru, Kargil or further on to Srinagar and get of in Nurla. From there you canm walk ona paved road to Temisgoan. ( 1 hour and start your trek from there ) Bus from Leh to Likir was 40RS.
I stayed at Norbu Guesthouse, was great.

If you need more info let me know.

Jochen

Yes, one more question: you said you don't need much gear on the Sham Trek. I'd like to bring anyway a sleeping bag, also for the night between Leh and Manali, which I believe is rather high up. What sort of sleeping bag would you advise for August?

I guess since you do not sleep outside a normal sleeping bag will do. I guess it doesn't get colder than 5°C ( maybe much warmer )anywhere.
Enjoy

on the same principle as the baby trek, you can start /finish at Phyang going to Likir. Phyang is a great monastery and that part is less trekked, not sure about homestays though
