Our Markha Valley Trek explores an extremely remote region in northern India. The region is so remote, and the topography so rugged, that local villagers can only access their summer grazing and farming lands at the end of winter when the local Zanskar River freezes. The river becomes their highway, and they wait until it freezes again in the fall to come back out. These photos offer a glimpse of their seasonal migration.
