We are the only company in the world who send an International guide and doctor on our Kang Yatse II (6,250) expeditions while keeping group sizes sustainably small. Sending an international guide and doctor on all our Kang Yatse II treks allows us to deliver an unrivalled level of safety and service for each and every one of our clients. Having smaller group sizes allows us to minimise our environmental impact and foster a stronger team dynamic.
This 16-day expedition is suitable for experienced trekkers who have a good level of fitness. Towering at an impressive 6,250 meters, Kang Yatse II is a serious challenge and the highest trekking peak in the Indian Himalayas.
Our route to the mountain is along the stunning Markha valley where we pass through traditional villages and enjoy stunning mountain views. Going up the valley is gradual which is perfect for acclimatisation and improves our chances of a successful summit attempt.
The 12-hour summit day is the crux of the itinerary. Most of the day is spent on snow with some short steep sections which require the use of ropes. The view from the top is one of the best in the Himalaya, offering great views of the Zanskar and Karakoram ranges including K2 (8,611m), the second highest peak in the world.
This is one of the best trekking peaks in the Indian Himalayas and its proximity to Leh makes it very accessible. Ladakh, often referred to as ‘little Tibet’, is characterised by Buddhist culture and tradition. Visits to monasteries, palaces, markets and remote villages are all included in this expedition. As well as enjoying 13 fantastic days in Ladakh you will see Delhi’s best sights and enjoy plenty of retail therapy.
