This is another small paragraph.

  • Trip introduction

    At 20,182 feet, Stok Kangri is the highest mountain in the Stok range of Himalayas, which offers one of the most challenging yet conquerable routes in this range. At different stretches of the trek the oxygen levels differ, and therefore the trek offers ample time for acclimatization. This is an ideal prep trek for enthusiasts who eventually intend to conquer tougher summits.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip, so a minimum group size of 5 pax is required to make a booking. This will be a private trip, just for your group.

    Destination

    Being close to the stunning town of Leh, the trek itinerary includes exploring these treasure towns situated in Ladakh. You will get to witness and experience the daily life in small hamlets of the Himalayas. The trek also offers splendid views of the Zanskar and Karakoram ranges from the summit.

    Destination highlights

    • Conquer the highest peak in the Stok range
    • Take on the challenge of this high-altitude trek trail
    • Camp at stunning locations
    • Experience the thrill of being at 20,000 feet and above
    • Photograph some magical landscapes

  • Day 1: Report to Leh

    Arrive from your hometowns to the capital town of Ladakh, Leh. Check in to your hotels, and relax for the rest of the day. Make sure you acclimatise fully: stay at the hotel, get enough sleep, drink lots of fluids, and don't tire yourself out.

    Day 2: Explore Leh

    Today you're free to explore Leh and get some light exercise and prep for your trek. The instructors will conduct an orientation and briefing session for the trek in the morning. After this, you can visit the local markets, monasteries and nearby attractions of Leh.

    Day 3: Trek to Mankarmo

    Today your journey begins. You will head to Stok village, which is a 30-minute drive from Leh. Start trekking from here to reach Mankarmo (13,940 feet). The trek should take approximately 4-5 hrs. Camp overnight in tents at Mankarmo.

    Day 4: Trek to Stok Kangri base camp

    After an early morning breakfast start trekking to the Stok Kangri base camp (16,400 feet). The trek from Mankarmo to the base camp should take about 2-3 hrs. The rest of the day is dedicated to prepare for the summit climb.

    Day 5: Rest day

    This is a rest day for the team to acclimatise to the altitude and climate before summit day. You will undertake a short trek to the glacier (17,700 feet), and return to the base camp. The rest of the day is dedicated to prepare for the summit climb. Go to bed early because you'll have a very early wake-up call.

    Day 6: Summit Day!

    It's Summit Day! Today you'll wake up early and begin your trek to the summit in the darkness. It's a day of long hours of trekking and you'll need to make sure you're leaving early. Some of the terrain is rough and you might have to clamber over rocks and tricky patches. But the summit is an otherworldly experience altogether! You'll be able to see mountain ranges all around! You'll spend some time enjoying your victory at the top, and then begin your descent to base camp.

    Day 7: Contingency day

    This is a buffer day, reserved in case the weather interferes with summitting the previous day. If the previous day was successful, you can explore the camp area or take it easy and relax.

    Day 8: Head back to Leh

    The group will trek for 4-5 hrs to return to Stok village. From here, vehicles are waiting to drive you down to Leh where arrangements are made for the overnight stay.

    Day 9: Leave Leh

    Post breakfast, participants head back to their respective hometowns. Trek ends here.
