Description

For 10 days we would like to guide you to the summit of one of the most beautiful peaks in the Himalayas, Stok Kangri (20,187 ft).

While it may not be one of the first peaks you think when it comes to great Himalayan peaks, Stok Kangri is nonetheless truly spectacular. It is also one of the world’s only non-technical climbs of a mountain higher than 6000 meters. As a result, reaching its summit is open to non-professional climbers. Furthermore, the views you will get from the summit of this great mountain are breathtaking.

Beginning in the lovely, and incredibly high altitude city of Leh, our journey will begin. After you’ve enjoyed a few days in Leh, while also getting acclimatized, we will start our journey to the top of Stok Kangri. During our adventure, you will get to trek through and appreciate the region’s amazing bird life, thrilling passes, gorges and a number of monasteries.

There are a number of amazing viewpoints during this trek. And from those points, you will get to see Kashmir, as well as several 8000 meter plus peaks all the way in Pakistan! And throughout this trip, we will be camping in different campsites, many of which are in the midst of the region’s wilderness. Thus giving you a truly immersive trip.

A climb this high, on a mountain this enormous, should not be open to non-professional climbers. Yet, in the case of Stok Kangri, that is exactly what you have the chance to do. So if you would like to join me on this adventure, just send us a request.

we can also lead you on a 18 to 21 day trek around the Annapurna massif in Nepal as well.
