From the summit, you'll be amply rewarded with clear views of Ladakh's cold desert with tall mountains of the Karakoram and Stok ranges. The Stok Kangri trek is perfect for experienced trekkers seeking a new adventure and thrill.

    Destination

    Mt. Stok Kangri, located in the Hemis National Park, is the highest peak in the Stok range at reaching over 20,100 feet. On clear days, this peak can often be seen towards the south from the Leh city. The trail to reach the peak takes you through Ladakh's classic landscapes, pinkish and barren mountains with layers of snow on the upper hills. This trek is the only one of its kind that can take you to such sky-touching heights without requiring any mountaineering experience. A bucket-list trek for many, this adventure is renowned and well recognized among the Indian trekking community.
