Our Kang Yatse II climb is 16 days in total and is suitable for experienced trekkers who have a good level of fitness. Towering at an impressive 6,250 metres (20505ft), Kang Yatse II is a serious challenge.
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 Himalaya and its proximity to Leh makes it very accessible. Ladakh is referred to as ‘Little Tibet’ and 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 we experience Delhi’s best sights and enjoy plenty of retail therapy. Delhi is one of the most hectic cities in the world and you have to see it to believe it.
