If one is lucky enough, he has the opportunity to catch the glimpse of the towering peak of K2 and the view of several crystal crests and large moraines winding down the barren valleys. During the trek get the chance of 360 degree view of the Saser Kangri, which dominates the northern sky on the Karakoram Range and the Zanskar Range on the south. The Stok Kangri Trek is one of the strenuous treks in the Ladakh region that requires serious acclimatization before hitting the tracks to Rumbak village. Even after crossing several mountain passes like Stok La at 4900 meters, the trail requires acclimatization at the Stok Kangri Base camp after camping and crossing Mankorma. The journey en route and thereafter passes through some narrow tracks and dangerous moraines; one might encounter snowstorms, which may slow down or hold back trekking to Stok Kangri.

The whole trip worked very well. Details of the offer very clear with accommodation options spelt out clearly when booking Booking Fairly straightforward, payment secure. Good swift response to emails, particularly when flight times were changed by the airline. Experience of travelling with Sure Trip India has been very satisfactory. They have faithfully stuck to the schedule that was planned prior to the tour. Hotel check-ins were smooth and arrangements were as per our brief. Mr.Jaswinder Singh from the STI was extremely responsive to every single mail and telephone call.Mr Jaswinder Singh was more than just a tour companion, in fact he became part of the family for the entire length of the tour. If you are a family travelling with ladies and children then TMI is a trustworthy option to look into.
