Stok Kangri & The Markha Valley Trek Tour(Ladakh-Tough Trek)

Stok Kangri & The Markha Valley Trek Tour(Ladakh-Tough Trek)

Package Duration
22 Days / 21 Nights
Destination Covered
New Delhi - Leh - Khardun La - Skiu - Markha Village - Hangkar - Nimaling - Kang Yatze - Chogdo - Shang Po - Gangpoche - Stok Kangri

  • Description :
    Region - Ladakh
    Max Altitude - 5300/6100mt
    Grade - Tough
    Best Time - June to Sep (A superb trek and climb in the Buddhist stronghold of Ladakh)

    Flying into the Ladakhi capital of Leh, the shapely peak of Stok Kangri (20075ft.) is prominent on the southern skyline. Spending several days acclimatizing, we visit the colorful monasteries at Shey, Thikse and Hemis before setting off on the lovely trek through the Markha Valley. Our route leads by way of several remote and picturesque villages to the high Nimaling Plain below the imposing peak of Kang Yatze. Crossing the Kongmaru La, we then follow an unusual high route to Stok Kangri Base Camp, a 3-day approach to the mountain, which includes superbly located campsites and far-reaching views towards Tibet and the eastern Karakoram. Although objectively very safe and technically straightforward (involving low-angle scree and easy snow slopes), the climb on Stok Kangri is both challenging and interesting. This is a wonderfully varied trip, perfectly suited to someone seeking his or her first Himalayan summit.

  • Arrive Delhi

    Description :

    Delhi - Leh (3500 m)

    Description :

    An early morning transfer to the domestic terminal of the airport for the flight up to Leh. This surely is one of the most sensational scheduled flights in the world, taking you right over the top of the Greater Himalaya before dropping down in a series of steep turns, to land at the small airport at Leh. Flight time approx. 1½ hours. You will be met on arrival and driven through Leh to check into the Hotel. Leh is at an altitude of 11,500ft/3,500m and therefore we recommend that the rest of the day be spent resting to help adjust to the altitude.

    At Leisure In Leh.

    Description :

    Again take it easy today and enjoy a tour around town. Leh is very Tibetan; the national dress, 'stove-pipe' hats and felt boots with turned-up toes are much in evidence. The Royal Palace, which dominates the town, is very reminiscent of the Potala in Lhasa and Tibetan Buddhist monasteries, large chortens, prayer flags and mud brick houses with flat roofs are a dramatic culture change from the hot, teeming frenetic rush of Delhi. Don't try to do too much on this first day! Visit the palace.
