61 years, love mountains, asia, nepal, India, my wife and photograhy. We did (in1986 !) treks in zanskar and ladakh and the annapurna circuit. More recent markha valley. I like a relaxed attitude. no hurry, enjoy where you are. .

This remote valley was only opened to trekking in 2008. Bounded by Ganesh Himal and Sringi Himal, and Boudha ranges, the valley was settled by people of Tibetan origin, and has a rich cultural history. The trail is lined with chortens and mani walls and home to the historic monasteries of Rachen Gompa and Mu Gompa. Accommodations may be basic but what the region lacks in amenities it makes up for in hospitality.

Side trip via Ganesh Himal Base Camp: It's a steep climb to the small nunnery of Gumba Lungdang preached beneath the towering peaks of the Ganesh Himal but well worth the effort for the breathtaking views and serenity of this little visited gompa.

Weather Conditions in October

October begins the most popular time to trek, with moderate temperatures, clear skies in the wake of the monsoon, and a low chance of rain and snow. In recent years, the monsoon rains have receded later with weather patterns typically stabilizing in mid-October. While the chance of snow is decreased, there is the possibility of a heavy snowfall at higher elevations. If ill-timed and prolonged, this can make it difficult to cross some passes.

At a glance
On average there are 4 days with precipitation in October. The highest point on the trek is Ganesh Himal Base Camp at 4200 m. During October, expect high temperatures of around 10.2°C (50°F) and lows down to -3.8°C (25°F) at Ganesh Himal Base Camp.
