Our Stok Kangri climb is 15 days total and is suitable for experienced trekkers with a good level of fitness. Towering at an impressive 6153 metres, Stok Kangri is a serious challenge.
Although it is considered a trekking peak, the summit day involves some scrambling and we may have to use crampons. We take a unique and scenic route crossing two large passes to reach base camp. This means that we get to see more of Ladakh and increases our acclimatisation to altitude. By taking this route, we improve our chances of a successful summit attempt.
The view from the top of Stok Kangri is one of the best in the Himalaya, offering us great views of the Zanskar and Karakoram ranges. If we get a clear day on the summit, it’s possible to see K2 (8611m), 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 12 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.
