About Us 2017-03-12T20:30:38+00:00


My name is Tashi Gonbo and I’m the director of Markha tour and Travel.

I was born in a very small village in the Markha Valley, part of the Hemis High Altitude National Park, a huge protected area doted with some truly spectacular landscapes, traditional and welcoming small villages and a rich wildlife, and crisscrossed by many wonderful trekking routes.

I’ve been involved in the travel bussiness since I began working as an expedition cook, almost 25 years back. In 2002 I opened my own travel agency, and nowadays I can proudly say that Markha Tour and Travel has grown a reputation as a good and reliable travel&trekking agency, with a really first hand knowledge of the land and a good network of hardworking, caring local people to look after our costumers and keep their expectations high.

We focus mainly in Ladakh, and can deal with any kind of trip, be it short or long, a sightseeing, adventure (climbing, rafting, etc), cultural, trekking, or nature one, or a combination of them. In season, we can even take you on amazing snow leopard watching trips with expert local guides.

We’ll be really pleased to attend your questions, whether you travel with us or not.

Welcome to Ladakh. Julley!
