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.

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.
