  • Trip introduction

    One of the more challenging treks in Ladakh, this Stok Kangri trek is not for the faint-hearted. Over a 7-day itinerary, you'll find yourself trekking through patches of thick snow as you gaze at a horizon lined with the snow-capped mountains of the Stok range. Your efforts will be rewarded as you climb up to an altitude of 20,187 feet and summit the Stok Kangri peak to get breathtaking views of the desolate Indus Valley. This is one of the few treks in the Himalayas that takes you to altitudes above 18,000 feet without requiring any mountaineering equipment.

    On this trek to Stok Kangri, you'll trek through a difficult trail, often swamped with snow. It is recommended that only trekkers with prior experience of high-altitude trekking attempt this trek.

    Destination

    Located inside the Hemis National Park, the Stok Kangri peak is the highest mountain in the Stok range. The peak attracts trekking enthusiasts without any mountaineering experience that are looking to embark on a high-altitude trek in Ladakh. From the summit of the peak, you can get unfiltered views of snow-capped peaks in the Karakoram range, the Zanskar range as well as the Indus Valley and the Leh city.

    Destination highlights

    • Climb up 20,187 feet on a trek to Stok Kangri.
    • Embark on a challenging, high-altitude trek in Ladakh.
    • Stay in tents pitched at campsites with breathtaking views.
