TRIP DETAILS

TREKKING TIME

1

LEH – STOK (20 MINUTES DRIVE). TREK FROM STOK TO MANKARMO (4250 M)

Early morning, we shall drive for around 20 mins to Stok village, from where our Trek begins. At Stok the pony man will load our big backpacks on the horses that are waiting for us. With our small daypacks we head off for Mancarmo through a beautiful valley, where there are unusual rock formations that point skywards in orange, purple, green colors. Mancarmo is the summer pasture of Stok villagers. Overnight stay in alpine tents at Mankarmo camp site 

TREK BEGINS

 

(4-5 hours)

2

MANKARMO (4250 M) to BASE CAMP (5000 M)

After the breakfast, we start trekking along the stream on a rocky trail. On the way we can enjoy the beautiful Rocky Mountains among which we can find some wild animals like blue sheep and wild goats. Slowly and vertically ascending up along trail, we will reach the Base Camp. Surrounded by high mountains, we, at base camp (5000 m), we will prepare our self mentally and physically for the Summit day.

(2-3 hours)

3

BASE CAMP(5000 M) – STOK KANGRI (6153 M) – BASE CAMP (5000 M)

Depending on your acclimatization, we shall start our Stok Kangri climbing today. (Else,  we shall begin the expedition the next day) We leave early around 1:00 am or 2:00 am. Usually conditions are better in the night/morning, because it is colder and the snow will be hard, therefore making it easier to climb.

It is a strenuous walk, and in the last part we will most likely use not only ice axes, but also crampons and, maybe, even rope, depending on snow conditions. However, by the time we come close to the top, you will forget about the hardship as you are surrounded by spectacular views of the Himalayas in the sunrise. In good weather conditions we can see the Saser group in the Great Karakoram Range, where K2 lies. To bring good fortune, we leave our Khatag, a religious scarf, on the mountaintop with prayer flags. Leaving the peak, we go down to Base Camp and by the time we arrive, the only thing running in our mind is diving into our sleeping bags for a rest.

MOUNTAIN CLIMBING

 

 

 

 

(8 hours)

 

4

BASE CAMP (5000 M)

In case if we could not climb the Stok Kangri peak because of the bad weather or altitude acclimatization problems, then we will try again today.

 

5

BASE CAMP – STOK VILLAGE (4-5 HOURS). END OF TREK. DRIVE FROM STOK – LEH

 From our Base camp, we descend all the way back to Stok village. This is a great walk crossing small streams. It takes about four to five hours to reach Stok village, where we are met by our waiting vehicles. We drive back to Leh where you will be checked into your Guesthouse for rest and refreshment. Overnight stay in Leh.
