If you are new to trekking, there is no other trek better suited than the Sham Valley Trek. A short trek which includes all that you can expect from more strenuous treks out there. It has short ascends, high altitude and rocky terrain as its elements. This is the reason why this trek is called the Baby Trek in Ladakh. A basic level of fitness will ensure you complete this four- day trek without much difficulty but at the same time enjoying the beautiful views along the way.

This trek covers Hemis Shukpachan, a village located in the middle of a cedar tree forest, Khaltse, Lamayuru Monastry before taking you back to Leh. At the highest point in your trek, you reach a maximum altitude of 13,100 ft, trekking along streams of water icy enough to chill you to the bones. Discover ancient monasteries like the Shey, Hemis, Thiksey, Spituk, Alchi etc. along the way with slight detours.

The highlight of this trek would be the opportunity to mingle with the locals who are very friendly. You can stay at the many local homestays which are well maintained and cosy, giving you a rich local feeling. Be sure to capture the beautiful sceneries, Tibetan customs and rituals on your camera for everlasting memories.
