Introduction To The Kang Yatse 1 and 2 - Trek and Climb above 6400 meters in Ladakh
- Popular Names: Kang Yatse 1 and 2 - Trek and Climb above 6400 meters in Ladakh

If you ask us to suggest the best climbing and trekking adventure in Ladakh, we would definitely keep Kang Yatse on top of the list.. not just because it is one of the most elegant looking mountains in the Himalayas, but climbing it also offers a high adventure quotient compared to the otherwise popular Stok Kangri

This little mountain massif is the highest of its surrounding belt and is visible from far distance.The first glance of it while on the through the Markha Valley appears while moving towards the little hamlet of Hankar. Right from its first appearance, this mountain will definitely demand your full attention and invite you to climb it.

Its a 4 peak mountain massif of which peak 1 and 2 are approachable from its base camp just above the pasture land of Nimaling. While the second peak of it is a trekking peak, the first one offers great challenge to reach its summit and is noted as a technical peak requiring some rope skills and snow craft. The best thing about these 2 peaks are it can be approached very quickly and climbed. 

If you are keen about mountaineering and want to get started, Kang Yatse 1 and 2 peaks offer you the apt condition to train for your upcoming climbing goals.

    INTERNATIONAL GUESTS: Trek cost for foreigners is slightly higher than the cost for our Indian guests, mainly due to higher permit fee applicable for admission to National Parks or protected forest areas. Sometimes, it may be higher due to local crew wages and other specific arrangements we make to ensure a safe, comfortable and enriching travel experience in India. However, we absolutely DO NOT 'hyper-charge' our International guests ever and at the same time, ensure that we meet all the standards for highly qualified trek leaders and guides, safety, medical preparation, evacuation strategy, rescue arrangements, eco-sensitive travel, high value knowledge sharing about the area and customs of the locals.
    PRIVATE GROUPS: We love to trek in smaller private groups as we believe that it gives the best ambience to experience the Himalayan spirituality, serenity, solitude and rawness. Small private groups are also eco friendly, safe, easy to manage and more caring towards each other. Most importantly, private groups are more focused towards their objective, specially for difficult treks above 6000 meters. They can be customized to suit your needs. On the other hand, they cost little more due to more dedicated resources. We specialize in arranging customized private groups catering to your specific needs. Contact us to request a private group for your team.
