Kang Yatse Summit
Kang Yatse Summit

Kang Yatse is a beautiful looking mountain dominating the Markha valley. It has a twin summit. The main peak is a dome and has its summit at 6400 meters. It requires technical skills and rope works to be used to reach its summit. The other peak has its summit at 6200 meters and a steep trek over the snow and scree guides to its summit. This is one of the highest trekking peaks in the Himalayas, higher than Stok Kangri which is more popular and commercial trek operators has wrongly made it famous as the highest trekking peak of India.

Kang Yatse 2 offers a great chance to summit a 6200 meter peak requiring no mountaineering skills, though having it helps. The peak of Kang Yatse dominates the Markha Valley with its elegant presence and stands apart distinctively from its other surrounding peaks, few of which are also over 6000 meter high.  It can be taken as your introduction to basic mountaineering skills required in the high Himalayas. The altitude, terrain, gradient of the climb, snow conditions and cold provides enough challenge even to the fit and experienced trekkers. Kang Yatse being a lesser known peak and remote, it offers a great raw experience of the Himalayas.

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

 

 

The Approach March to The Base Camp of Kang Yatse

approaching hankar from markha

The approach to this gem begins from Chilling and a trek through the Markha Valley, passing by the villages of Skiu, Markha and Hankar. These villages are some of the historical villages, not only of Ladakh, but also of India. A part of the ancient Silk Route and also the Indus Valley Civilization. The fertile land is further turned into a rich agricultural valley by the sheer determination and hard work of the dwelling locals.

On this approach march to the peak of Kang Yatse, we do come across few local villagers and talking to them gives an enlightening perspective to your thought process. As soon as you leave the Markha campsite and walk towards Hankar, the peak of Kang Yatse is seen for the first time and right away, it starts dominating not just the valley, but also your mind.

After crossing Hankar and the campsite of Thochungtse, we reach the base camp of Kang Yatse, diverging the trail to Nimaling. Here, the massif of Kang Yatse stands right in front of you inspiring within you enough grit and determination to scale its summit.

 

 

 

The Route To The Summit of Kang Yatse 2

the final ascent

Its a steep climb after the base camp to the summit of the peak. We initially negotiate scree zone to reach the summit ridge. During early June and July, there is ample snow and boots and crampons can be worn from the base camp itself depending upon the snow. Else, we reach the crampon point on the ridge where we stop to wear our snow gears. The climb gets steeper with time and amount of snow deposit keeps on increasing as well. Its a difficult climb above 5000 meters and a hard walk for some 7 - 8 hours takes you to the summit of the Kang Yatse Shoulder Peak. The feeling of standing on the top does feel satisfying, but the views from the top is breathtaking too ! Peaks of East Karakoram, Zanskar and Ladakh are visible from the top like a eagle's view.

The trek down from the summit is fast and we reach the base camp in some 4 hours time. In our itinerary, we have kept a reeserved day which is to be used for a bad weather or an unsuccessful attempt. We return in a day from the Base Camp to Leh via the high pass of Kongmaru La, following the Markha Gorge and exiting via the village of Shang Sumdo, which is the motor head for the return.

Acclimatization Is The Primary Key To Success

On a difficult trek like this which climbs steepy on difficult terrain higher above 6000 meters, acclimatization is your primary weapon. Our itinerary is well designed from acclimatization perspective and gives you enough rest to achieve the success on the summit. Firstly, the 2 rest days in Leh ( we advice 1 more day in Leh ) and then the short acclimatization walks on each evening not just gives you better photographs but also helps you acclimatize better for the upcoming challenges. The base camp is at 5000 meters and sleeping at this altitude is really difficult. However, to be successful in achieving the summit, we need to adjust quickly and sleep well as well. We have kept extra rest and orientration day in the base camp to help you prepare well for the summit attempt and also acclimatize well for the difficult altitude and trek in the coming days.

The meal plan that we render on the trek is also designed keeping in mind better and quicker acclimitization with more hot garlic soups, more and more water, less of oily food and a balanced diet of carbohydrate and enough but not much protein which are easily digestible.

Slow walks on approach days gives much better result with acclimatization, even if you could walk quicker. Preserve that extra energy for the summit walk.

Importance Of Rest Day and Orientation of Technical Equipment In The Base Camp:

After we reach the base camp, we have a full rest day the next day. Though we call it a full rest day, it is not actually so. We do spend some time getting acquainted with our equipments so that we gear up very qucikly for the summit climb which starts right in the midnight, around 12 or 1 AM.  We will give you a helmet, a walking ice axe, a harness, a pair of gaiters, a screw carabiner, a pair of 2 layered climbing boot with a pair of climbing crampon. Our leaders explains and demos the use of these technical gears. We are supposed to try everything and make sure everything is fine and fit. Our leaders will explain how to gear up for the summit climb and will also show you rope technique as we will climb the peak roped-up with each other. Its very important day and we need to very alert in the demo session. We also go for acclimatization walk in roped up condition to get acquainted with rope skills and acclimatize better.

Snow Condition and Best Time to climb the Kang Yatse Peak

While its difficult to predict snow condition, June mid to July early has more snow copmpared to August anbd September. Till October mid its good time to trek to the summit of Kang Yatse.

 

 

Setting Up Of Advanced Base Camp For The Summit

More snow and smaller team allows us to set up Advanced Base Camp on the summit ridge. Since the route does not have any water source we will have to melt snow for water. Hence Early June, July eases up setting advanced base camp on the summit ridge. We carry a small butane cylinder and alpine stove to heat water and cook some ultra light food for the Bivuouc Advance Camp. This definitely eases our summit climb but one has to be acclimatized well to camp and sleep at ABC, higher up than the base camp. In the month of August and September also its possible to set up ABC but water has to be carried and a rougher campsite is to be expected which does not ease sleeping at all.

 

Come, lets take the challenge and stand on the top of Kang Yatse to feel the Himalayan High at 6200 meters high Himalayan peak !!

Today, we fly from Delhi to reach Leh by afternoon, and checkin to our hotel. All of a sudden when you take in the cool dry air of Ladakh, your body won't not conform to the new changed environment, that too in only couple of hours !!

Staying hydrated is the key to a successful trek in Ladakh. Drink enough water from the previous night itself, and not after landing on Ladakh. Likewise, have a Vaseline convenient to apply to your nostrils to keep it moist, else you will feel the air is excessively dry and cold making it difficult to inhale comfortably.

We rest for the rest of the day and meet in the evening for a light Snacks and a formal Team Introduction where we share few important information on the trek preparation and planning.

Day 3From Leh To Skiu, Via - Chilling

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today we start early morning to drive till Chilling. The bridge to cross the river is broken by the recent flood and hence you get to cross the river in an interesting rope trolley. I bet if if have not done it before, adventure begins right away!

All your trek stuffs and equipment are transferred in the similar fashion. Once you cross the river, the horses are loaded and then we are set to start our trek to Markha Valley. Today, we camp at Skiu – A 3 hour easy trek on mostly flat trail with occasional short ascends and descend.

The trek route is very interesting and the landscape is very fascinating and unique. Sudden appearance of few green patches on the otherwise barren, creamy mountain adds a unique contrast to the scenery. Sightings of few wild animals and locals enhances the day. Our campsite is defined and we after some 3- 4 hours, we reach our campsite.

Day 4From Skiu To Markha

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Waking up to a wonderful morning in Skiu, today we trek to the village of Markha. An easy trek with almost a flat walks on most part of the trail, with occasional short ascents and descends like yesterday's.

The views throughout are breathtaking. Watch out for the different and unique rockscapes and structures of the mountains formed by wind and water erosion. With our previous experiences, we tried to tickle our imagination with the illusions created by these unique structures and strongly supported our conclusions of what they looked like -  ‘trunks of elephant’, ‘doorway to a very old tomb’, 'dinosaurs', etc. Its an interesting game to play which keeps us engaged with the mountains continuously and it goes unrealized when we reach our campsite.

Markha is a very beautiful campsite. The campsite is designated on a flat meadow with the a stream flowing by. Do take time out in the evening to visit an old monastery nearby.

Day 5From Markha To Thochungtse, Via - Hankar

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

The trek to Thochungtse goes via Hankar from Markha. It a beautiful trek and takes about 4 - 5 hours. The route to Hankar is mostly flat with occasional ups and downs. Soon, we  get a glimpse of Kang Yatse which fills us with excitement. After about 3 hours of trek we reach the beautiful village of Hankar with few houses, lots of greens and the massif of Kang Yatse looks over it. Its a perfect picturesque setting. Its a good idea to spend some time here and have our lunch here.

After leaving Hankar behind, the terrain changes immediately with no mentionable greens to be seen further. The route is jaw-dropping with unique structures of the mountains and the rocks. Here its very easy to spot blue sheep and ibex, snow leopards too !!

A walk of some 2 - 3 hours brings us to a small grassy plains which is the designated campsite of Thochungtse. 

In the evening, we will climb the nearby mountain for acclimatization. While it is a acclimatization walk, but climbing up the mountain greets us to a stupendous views of our pea in focus - Kang Yatse, and also other nearby peaks and the platue of Nimaling

Brief Details Of The Day:

Starting the trek from Thochungtse, we climb a mountain hump straight ahead of us. At that altitude, it does take some time, but once done, enjoy up-close views of Kang Yatse. A huge massif, overwhelming us with its presence. Also, the very thought that we will be approaching the to the base of it further adds to our spirit.

Day 8Summit Day. From Kang Yatse Base Camp To Kang Yatse Base Camp, Via - Kang Yatse Shoulder Summit

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today is the day for us as we attempt it just past midnight at around 1 AM and aim to reach the top at dawn. All these days we had been walking slowly, when we could have walked faster, just for this day. We have ensured that we enjoy as much without being bothered about climbing this peak just because we wanted to climb it.  

Overall, it’s a challenging day right from the beginning and we try to beat it. To be able to be on top, is a feeling inexpressible. The route climbs towards your right straight up initially over a scree zone and then follows a steep climb on snow to take us to the summit. From the summit, witness all round views of peaks as far as that of East Karakoram, and the surrounding peaks of Kang Yatse.

We descend down from the summit in time, and it requires some safe steps. We need to be careful while coming down. If energy allows, we can descend down to Nimaling and camp there, else we camp in Base Camp itself.

Day 10From Kang Yatse Base Camp To Leh, Via - Kongmaru La, Chuskirmo

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today we initially climb the small hill which divides Nimaling and the Base Camp, and then quickly descend down to Nimaling.

From Nimaling, we start climbing the switch backs to the top of Kongmaru La (Gongmaru La) – 5130m, a high pass with wonderful views all round. Climbing through multiple switch backs takes us to the summit of Kongmaru La in an hour or a little more, marked with lots of prayer flags furling with the wind. Spend some good time here to relish the views all round.

After crossing the pass, it’s a steep descend down the beautiful Markha gorge. The views and the trail passes down following the narrow Markha gorge and is unbelievable unless you trek it. A sharp descend from the pass top gets us to Lartsa. From there, a trek of some 3 - 4 hours will bring you to the campsite of Chuskirmo.

From Chuskirmo, we trek for another 2.5 - 3 hours to Shang Sumdo, where our cab waits to take us to Leh.

 

Note: If the reserved day is unused, we will trek down till Chuskirmo to make the return to Leh bit relaxing and comfortable.

Fixed Departure Price
( per head cost)

INR 48000

INR 45,000 | USD 662

DYNAMIC PRICING: Our pricing system is based on the 'actual' team size which joins the trek and is not fixed. It is dynamic and adjusts according to the group size. The cost is more for smaller group size, whereas bigger group size gets a lower price. The price listed above is the maximum price applicable for a group size between 5 - 9 trekkers. It is not limited to the group size in which you register, but the actual group size on the ground, joining the trek. To book, you pay 50% of the trek fees initially. The remaining amount is to be paid 1 month before the trek start date. Excess amount, if any collected will be refunded. This helps us pass the group discount benefit to all the trek participants equally.
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.
Extra Cost Applicable For International Guests:

INR 4000 | USD 59 Per Head

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.

Thanks to Himalayan High family (Suman, Montu, Hemanshu and ram). Me and my wife had Summited kanyatse 2 on 27 September 2017.I was worried a lot before our trek but Suman really the great personality, who understood me in depth and made all aspects very clear. I have done Everest base camp Nov 2015 and with my wife summited stok kangri Sep 2016 in groups but kanyatse we were only two. Montu Singh the real Mountaineer, very good guide and good trek leader always encouraged us. Ram made us comfortable with variety of good quality food. Himalayan High has good quality equipments which is very important for 6000mts climbers. Finally I conclude that we can believe this family like company, may be small but does what they promise.

I was initially a bit apprehensive in booking Himalayan high as their previous website was slightly outdated and lacked pictures and descriptions but once I spoke about the details on the phone with Suman, I really gained a lot of confidence and was very impressed with what they were offering. This was my first experience with Himalayan high and I did two back to back treks, Kang yatse 2 and stok kangri. Both my experiences were great, Montu Singh is a great trek leader and guide and the rest of the crew was fantastic! The most impressive aspect was actually the equipment which is in great condition, better than most rental houses in Leh city, infact NY snow boots were brand new and so were the harnesses and helmets. This is not the cheapest company but once you will trek with them you will know exactly where the money is going. Definitely I'm looking to do more treks with them in the future.

☆☆☆☆

It was great experience having done my trek with Himalayan high for kang yatse. Few points to talk about the experience Hotel stay in Leh: it was superb homestay in Leh with good food( little expensive though) Arrangements: all the arrangements done were good considering our group size. The equipments, tempo travel from Leh to starting point and return , porters carrying our bags , tents, sleeping bags for subzero, kitchen tent was superb with chairs , Safety : they gave importance to safety , we had all the equipment required for summit push like ice axe , snow boots , ropes , crampons. Food: It was good and lots of variety in dinner Guides: Montu and Rajeev were helpful and approachable. They taken care of us from the time we landed in Leh . Improvement things 1) packaged lunch would have been better and little more since everyday it was long trek 2) summit plan would have been handled better specially the local guide who has come was not up to the mark Recommendations I recommend this trek and Himalayan high to anyone who is interested to do pure high climbs in Himalaya.
