Geocache Description:

Gongmaru La, one of the highest caches in the world, part of the Markha Valley Trek

This Cache is very near the top of Gongmaru La (or Kongmaru La or Kangmaru La). If the gps reading is correct this highest pass of the trek is 5284m high. You have wonderful views from the top. There are snow peaks in every direction and on a clear day the giants of Karakoram, including K2, can be seen on the north-western horizon.

However, to reach this pass, you have to make this beautiful, but very strenous trek trough the Markha Valley. We did it on our own (with backpacks) but there are a lot of companies, that offer treks trough the Marka Valley. The gps reading should be very acurate, as there are no obstructions to the signal near by.

Small note on cache maintenance:
There is a local cache guardian who will assist.
