Leh can be reached by flight to Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport (Leh Airport), or by road via buses or cars.
Not the easiest, yet the most coveted, the Stok Kangri trek takes you to the soaring altitude of 20,000 feet! From this height, you'll be able to see the entire Karakoram Range, a majority of the iconic Himalayan peaks, and the whole of Leh along with its surrounding regions! The highlight of this Stok Kangri trek however, is that you can get to this height without any technical mountaineering expertise. You'll get to the base camp of Stok Kangri within 2-3 days of trekking, while it takes much longer to get to the base camp of any other peak of this height. All along this trek, you'll see the barren beauty of Ladakh; the snow capped mountains, and the boundless stretches of icy desert.
Located in the Hemis National Park, Stok Kangri is the highest peak of the Stok range. From the peak, you'll get uninterrupted views of the Ladakh Range, Zanskar Range, the Karakoram Range and the Indus Valley flowing below!
