Ladakh Sham Valley Trek

By Ladakh Backpackers
About
The Sham Valley trek—also known as the “Baby Trek”—is a short 3-day trek perfect for beginners, or those hoping to do a bit of warm up before a more strenuous adventure. Don’t let the name deter you; though one of the easier treks in Ladakh, the Sham Valley trek is tiring at times due to the altitude, and you’ll certainly break a sweat. A basic level of fitness is still required, but we highly recommend it for anyone looking for a short or beginner trek in Ladakh.

        Exceptional Trip Arrangement
        I wanted to extend my gratitude for the exceptional trip arrangement to Kashmir for 7 days. The itinerary was meticulously planned, offering excellent accommodations and seamless transport to various attractions. Shakeel, a responsible and pleasant individual, ensured everything ran smoothly, while Fida and the team exhibited remarkable organization. My family thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and we eagerly anticipate our next trip with your company.

        Best Ladakh trip ever with these guys! They customized the trip according to our request. Everywhere we went in Ladakh, the people said they were Padma and Fida's friends. Thank you very much for the memorable trip! I would love to come back again one day!

They werde flexible to go through several iterations in planning till all our wishes were included. All accomodations, all transportation were very nice.

        Excellent trip
        If you want to see Ladakh then it has to be with the Ladakh backpackers team. Fida, Padma, Gulam and team! The best part was their customer centricity and obsession. They would go to any extent to make sure that you have a memorable experience. Their planning of the trip, attention to all details and they are there at every step to help you. We were travelling with small kids and Fida was guiding us in each and every step. The hotels they booked were excellent, the cars and their drivers were superb. They don’t treat you as “one more customer” they really make you feel special and they understand that it’s a life time trip for many. My elder daughter was not feeling well so Padma and Fida came to the hotel and took us to the doctor, this was very touching and I would always remember their gesture.

        Trip to remember..
        We had one of our best trips with the Ladakh Backpackers team. They are highly professional and available to accommodate your needs to the fullest. The hotel rooms, food and homestay was excellent. Even though weather was cold but warmth of the Ladakhis are enough.

      Although the trek is not very difficult, but the incredible landscap with mountains and streams is just incredible. We had done couple of treks in the western ghats and Himachal before but this one is just so different and on top of that our local support from the people at Ladakh Backpackers was just amazing with everything planned nicely by them. Looking forward for the Markha Valley next time with them.

      We did a three day Trek and had a really nice experience. Our guide, So-nam was experienced, very kind and patient. The accommodation throughout the route was of a high standard (especially for home stays). The route we took was extremely beautiful and it felt like we had the mountains to our selves. Would really recommend this company!

      Many thanks to Ladakh Backpakers for their advices before my arrival and for the organization of my trek. I highly recommend this agency for any trek you wish to plan in Ladakh. Everything was well organized and even I travelled on my own, they could easily fit me in one group. Before my arrival I compared the prices of a large amount of agencies and Ladakh Backpackers was one of the cheapest agency. Fida one of the team member, was very nice and helpful. Thank you again for all the help, which made my stay in Ladakh so great. I will surely come back to Ladakh next year and ask you guys to organize a new trek for me.
