The challenge

  • Visit the Tibetan influenced town of Leh
  • Ascend one of India's highest Himalayan peaks (6,114m)
  • Enjoy spectacular mountain scenery
  • Undertake non-technical summit climb

This outstanding trek to the summit of India's magnificent mountain, Stok Kangri (6,114m), is the perfect challenge for trekkers who want to summit an Indian Himalayan Peak. It is one of the main peaks of the Zansker range, situated in the fascinating region of Ladakh. Your trekking adventure begins at Leh where you will have plenty of time to acclimatise to the high altitude. This stark region of high passes and wild mountains is softened by the immense charm of the Ladakhi villages and their inhabitants. You will spend several days acclimatising by visiting the colourful monasteries at Shey, Thikse and Hemis and visiting the world highest driveable road at Khardungla, before setting off on the memorable trek to Stok Kangri. You will trek for between 10-15kms per day and although the route is very safe and technically straightforward (involving low-angle scree and easy snow slopes), the climb up Stok Kangri is challenging and may involve the use of crampons, ice axes and ropes.
