Stok Kangri Trek

Stok Kangri is the perfect exposure for trekkers without climbing experience that want to summit on their first Himalayan Peak. Stok Kangri (6,137 mts.) is the highest mountain in the Stok Range of the Himalayas in the Ladakh region of northwest India. The peak is located in Hemis National Park, 12 km southwest of the trailhead at 3,610 m in the village of Stok and 24 km southwest of Leh. It is one of the main peaks of the Zansker range, situated in the fascinating region of Ladakh. This high and arid landscape has captured the imagination of travellers since it first opened to visitors in 1974. The expedition travels through remote valleys, scattered high villages and past hilltop monasteries to the base of the mountain.
