About This Presentation

Stok Kangri Trekking Expedition, Ladakh


Brace yourself for a trek to the spectacular Stok Kangri Trek. This is just perfect for the newbie mountaineers to conquer 6000m as it does not comprise technical climbs to make it to the high altitude. Stok Kangri is located in the surreal location of Ladakah that enchants with black and white scenery with streaks of blue and grey. The experience is not without its difficulty as you would have to tackle the thin air of high altitudes. Taking this into consideration, you will be given adequate time to get acclimatised. The activity will span over 9 days and the maximum altitude you will encounter is 6153m. Thrills include passing over a glacier, ascending lengthy sections and manoeuvring vertical elevations. Once on top, you are rewarded with views of Ladakh range, Zanskar range, Indus valley and Leh City. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Stok Kangri Trek, Ladakh
The adventure begins once you land here - Leh
Day 1 Arrival at Leh and Acclimatisation
This refreshing day, arrive at Leh. Check-in to
your hotel and relax. Sip on tea/coffee. Do
note, since it is very important for you to get
acclimatised in order to have a healthy journey,
the first three days will be reserved for the
same. Overnight will be spent in hotel

Day 3 Leh - Khardung La -Leh
This refreshing day, you venture out to Khardung
La. Perched at 5600m, it is a high motorable
pass. Spend some time here that will help you to
get used to thin air altitudes. When here,
witness great sights and go trigger happy. Come

Day 04-05 Leh - Stok Village(3650m) - Stok Base
Camp (4900m) (Trek/5-6 hrs)
With three good days spent on acclimatisation, on
day 4 and 5 you set off to Stok Kangri. On day
4, post a short drive, reach Stok Village and
tour the palace and gompa. Post which, you
commence the hike through Hemis National Park. It
will take you around 5-6 hours to reach the base
camp. In the course of the two days, you will
ascend from the campsites for altitude gain
following the simple principle of acclimatisation
which says 'climb high - sleep low'. Overnight
for both the days will be spent in tents.

Day 06 Base camp - Stok Kangri(6153m) - Base
Camp (4900m), (Trek/10-12 hours)
From the basecamp, begin super early (around
2am). Your head lamps will show the trail for
some hours till the sun rises. From the start
there is a steep ascend to the ridge just above
the camp, the rest of the trek will continue in a
similar manner. The last stretch is very steep
and the thin air adds to the challenge. Once on
top, you can set your eyes on Karakoram and
Ladakh range to the north, the Zanskar Range to
the west and a bird's eye view of the Indus
valley and the Leh city. Savour the moment of
conquering a 6000m peak . The climb to the top
will take anywhere between 6 to 8 hours while the
return trip will take us around 4
hours. Overnight will be spent in treks.
