Customized Private Group

Trekking is a very personal activity and is perhaps one of the very few activities that give you enough time to indulge with yourself or your beloved people, group of special friends, or close family members. It helps you transform personal bonds to the next level as it brings out everyone's best and truest self. Trekking is most enjoyed when it is done in a small private group, personalized to serve your specific needs. The Himalayas are best experienced when there is silence and solitude around and when you are surrounded only by your best people. Your trek is most enjoyable when all the pain of arranging a smooth trek is taken care of by us, and you focus just on your trek and yourself. Most importantly, a small private trekking group is very flexible, personalized and more enjoyable, is the safest and follows the principles of Sustainable and Responsible Tourism. We specialize in and are more popular for arranging Small Customized Private Trekking Groups to the Himalayas. We arrange private treks at little extra cost over the price mentioned above.

Extra Cost For Private Groups: Rs. 0 per person, for each person in the team. This cost reduces with an increase in the team size. A team above 12 gets a private group for free. Enquire For Customized Private Trek





INTERNATIONAL GUESTS: Trek cost for foreigners is slightly higher than the cost for our Indian guests, mainly due to the higher permit fee applicable for admission to National Parks or protected forest areas. Sometimes, it may be higher due to higher 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. 

Extra Cost For International Trekkers: Rs. 6000 per person.

International Trekkers need to go through manual invoicing upon remittance of the partial booking fees using PayPal, Transferwise, Western Union or Direct Wire Transfer.

Currently, this trek is undoable due to ongoing Covid19 restrictions in Ladakh, and especially the villages of Markha Valley are not open to tourists. We will update this section when the situation improves.

When Does It Snow On The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

It typically starts to snow on this peak from the 2nd week of October and occasional snowfall keeps piling up until April. The usual winter months in Ladakh are from the end of November till early March. Ladakh being in a rain shadow, Trans-Himalayan region, the weather conditions are dry and the snow here is typically dry snow. The Base Camp which is at 5000 meters remains under snow cover till the mid of June while the higher ridgeline is always under snow cover. occasionally, it also snows in the months of August and September as well. However, the best climbing season for this peak is from July till the first week of October.

Which Is The Best Time To Do The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

The best time to begin your climb to Kang Yatse is from the mid of July till the end of September. While at the beginning of July, snow cover is more, August and September provide ideal climbing conditions. Our team has successfully climbed this peak in early July as well as mid of October as well, despite the odds.

How Cold Is The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

On this trek we face a wide zone of temperature variations and it can vary between 25 Degree Celcius in Leh to -10 Degree Celcius in Base camp and Summit. The winds of Ladakh are typically very cold and dry. While the days are warm, the night gets very chilly. Leh, the starting point of this trek has a different temperature zone than that of the base camp or the summit as the altitude difference is nearly over 2700 meters. While July till the mid of September are comfortable, the temperature starts to decrease as we near October.

What Varieties Of Flora And Fauna Can Be Seen On The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

The Kang Yatse Trek ventures deep into the wild land of the Hemis National Park which is one of the largest High Altitude National Parks in the World. It is rich in wildlife, and especially the densest habitat for the elusive Snow Leopard and its prey, namely the Blue Sheep, Ibex, and Argali. Red fox, Tibetan Wolf, marmot, Weasel, and bears are also found densely in these valleys along with over 70 species of birds. Belonging to rain shadow trans-Himalayan belt, The hemis Park does not boast of dense forest like other parts fo the Himalayas. Flora limits itself to dessert bushes, junipers, and few rare medicinal shrubs.

How Are The Accommodations And Toilet Facility On The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

Accommodation in Leh has a wide variety of options from budget hotels to 5-star categories. On our trek package, we offer full board accommodation in 4-star accommodation and is one of the best in Leh. On treks, you have the choice of staying in homestays in the villages of Skiu, Markha, and Hankar but after that camping is the only option in Nimaling and Kang Yatse Base Camp. On our treks, we offer full board camping service in twin sharing 4-season tents with double-layered down sleeping bags and a thick waterproof foam mattress. Dining tents are equipped with camping tables and chairs for easy and hygienic dining while on camps. Separate Kitchen tents and staff tents are carried for the crew members.

Toilets in the camps are cat-style dry toilets or popularly known as Ladakhi toilets in the homestays. We carry toilet tents and camping toilet seats.

What Are The Fitness Requirement Of The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

When you are climbing a 6000+ meter peak, that too in the cold desert of Ladakh, there are no limits for better fitness. There should be no much talk about this except for the fact that you should be as fit as possible possessing tremendous stamina and endurance. Physical strength matters very much as well. While stamina and endurance are basic requirements of this trek, it is a 70% mental game. Self-motivation and teamwork is the key to success. Do remember, we don't want you to be an olympic champion or a body builder.

Can Novice Trekkers Do The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

Beginners who are very fit and strong can undertake this trek under the guidance of a professional team. You should be a good listener and a quick learner because a professional team takes care of the rest and will guide you to success. We have in the past put many first timers on the summit of Kang Yatse 2.

What Are The Risk Of AMS On The Kang Yatse 2 Trek?

From AMS point of view, the Kang Yatse 2 Trek is very critical as it ventures on altitudes above 6000 meters which is an extreme high altitude zone. Oxygen here is very less and acclimatization is the only answer for a successful summit. A well planned, slow paced itinerary, nutritious meals focussing on balanced meal, hydration and warmth, acclimatization walks and comfortable sleeping conditions are very very important to beat the challenges thrown by the extreme high altitude.
