Details

Join me on this amazing himalayan adventure - to the highest trekking peak in India!

Stok Kangri is the highest peak in the Stok range of the Himalayas and the highest trekking peak in India. Located in Ladakh in northwest India, we reach it from the region’s capital, Leh. Ladakh means “the land of high passes” as the region links the Karakorum’s to the north with the Himalayas to the south.

It makes a fantastic entry level 6,000m peak as the ascent is not generally considered to be technical, especially as the majority of the mountain is snow-free in July and August. Arriving from Delhi into Leh which lies at 3,524m we spend a few days exploring Leh and some of the local monasteries in order to acclimatise. Our trek begins at Choksi where one extended family farm the small, verdant valley and from here the trek is a wonderful ascent through wild Indian countryside, rural villages and up into spectacular mountain scenery of plunging rivers, steep gorges and high mountain passes all surrounded by majestic snow-capped peaks.
