There is no pick-up for the Kang Yatse II Expedition.
The Kang Yatse II expedition takes you to an altitude of 20,500 feet deep from where you will enjoy breath-taking views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks and valleys. You will also see the magnificent K2 peak, the world's second-highest peak, and the Stok Kangri peak. The trail also takes you to the confluence of Indus and Zanskar river, and Markha Valley, and you enjoy the never-ending array of Karakoram and Zanskar ranges all around you. You will also visit various remote villages where you will experience the authentic Ladakhi culture and heritage. Please note that this trek is challenging, only suitable for trekkers with prior experience of trekking in the Himalayas.
Kang Yatse is a mountain located in the Markha Valley of Ladakh. The mountain has two peaks, Kang Yatse I and Kang Yatse II, the latter being easier to summit. On this trek, you will summit the Kang Yatse II peak which stretches to an altitude of 20,500 feet. This peak is considered as the less popular sibling of Stok Kangri, and one of the easiest 6000-meter peaks to summit.
The trail goes through a constantly varying landscape. You begin in the barren Ladakhi desert, and then cut through the Hemis National Park and the lush pastures of Thachungtse and Nimling until you reach the surreal snow-covered landscape around Kang Yatse.
