Introduction To The Stok Kangri Summit Trek
- Popular Names: Stok Kangri Summit

Stok Kangri
Stok Kangri Summit Trek

Stok Kangri is a one of the major trekking peak is Ladakh the summit of which is at a super high altitude of 6153 meters. The trek to the summit of Stok Kangri in Ladakh offers a great opportunity to scale a 6153 meter peak, requiring no mountaineering techniques at all.

Trekking in Ladakh is an lifetime experience in itself, but being able to see its beauty from as high as 6153 meters is crazy !! That's where the true Himalayan High lies, isn't it ? Summiting Stok Kangri is a pride which very few can boast of.

Though Stok Kangri is a trekking peak, its altitude and other dangers cannot be ignored. It requires good planning and the mountain rejects the over confident trekkers. For few who tried to underestimate the high altitude terrain of Stok Kangri has had paid their price, sometimes fatal too. For those who go to the peak with respect, the mountain rewards and allows to climb to its summit.

Planning for the summit of Stok Kangri requires good physical conditioning and more than that, it requires a tough mental preparedness. The trek can get very demanding during early in the season due to snow. Already beyond 5000 meters, you need good acclimatization and strength in your leg to beat that exhaustion caused by negotiating the snow on the steep climb.

The ridge leading to the summit of Stok Kangri is sharp after the shoulder with good exposure on the other side. While, the amount of snow it has early in the season can tire even the strongest of the trekkers, snow-less ridge is not a simple one too, which requires negotiating few boulders and tricky sections involving deep falls.

Snow is just one side of the challenge on the Stok Kangri trek. The much bigger of a challenge is its altitude. Only a fit and well acclimatized trekker can climb it successfully while enjoying the climb. At 6000 meters, the air gets thinner and there is only one way to beat it - ACCLIMATIZATION.

The peak demands respect and proper preparation and planning is the key to achieve success on it. A good plan is made right from the beginning with the design of the itinerary and the its execution as planned, to summit the peak. Physical preparation is a must for this trek if you are not a regular mountain person. If you are, you already know the value of it.

If you are an explorer and an adventurer by your breed, this trek is a must to have in your trek diaries. It's no easy trek, and not difficult in the same way. Only thing to beat is the super high altitude and the cold. Our itinerary is designed for better acclimatization to achieve a success on the summit. 

 

 

 

WHY SHOULD YOU CLIMB  WITH US ?


Unlike the mass-trekking  and hand-held trekking groups in our country, we, on all of our treks, inspire and motivate to boost more of the Intrinsic and Inherent Adventure Sense of a human being when it comes to our work ethics.

We keep our group size limited to 12 people on a challenging treks like this as smaller groups has more summit  success rate since the team is more focused on their objectives, share common physical abilities, are safer and friendlier. Most importantly, our filtration and selective process ensures that the team, unlike that of the mass-trekking groups, is not limited by the weaknesses of the unfiltered, incompetent and unmanageable flock joining the team. Smaller group also helps to create a ambient Himalayan experience of Solitude, giving priority to Safety, Easy Management, Maximum Attention, Utmost care, Friendly attitude, and a Learning experience to make you a better and a humble trekker.

Our forced efforts to keep the group size small has given us very nice success rate on the summits of these trekking peaks in the Himalayas.  Our itinerary and meal plan is very well planned and with further orientation and planning, we move closer to the summit with each of these carefully decided actions.

The equipment that we provide on the treks are some of the best in the industry. Few of those are designed and custom-made just to suit our purpose of a safe and comfortable trek experience. We provide you with all the gears required to be better equipped for the trek.

  • 6153 meters, An Extremely High Altitude summit, climbing Stok Kangri is an accomplishment in itself and can be treated as an introduction to mountaineering in the Himalayas.
  • No mountaineering techniques required: This is probably a very rare oppurtunity to trek to a summit of a mountain 6153 meters high with no skills of mountaineering techniques, though having it helps. We give a orientation training in the base camp about basic rope skills. 
  • View of K2, Second highest mountain of the World, in Karakoram: On a clear day, K2, Nun-Kun and Nanga Parvat reveals itself from the summit. 
  • Classic view of the Markha Valley. The entire valley is visible from the top and there are other versions of the trek too in which you can climb Stok Kangri via the Markha Valley.  
  • Sighting the rare wildlife of the Hemis National Park. Mountain Goats, Marmots and other wild life. Seeing mountain goats is easier as they don't fear humans too much. Fair chances of seeing these on this trek. Marmots can also be heard and seen. If lucky, you may sight the rare Snow Leopard as well !
  • The culture and villages of Ladakh are an experience in itself.

Day 4From Rumbak To Mankorma , Via - Stok La

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Rumbak is the winter destination for the elusive Snow Leopard, rather this entire region is. After a good night's sleep, we wake up to a lovely bright morning. If you are trekking in Ladakh for the first time, it takes some time to get used to it. Our initial days spent in Leh help in this regards.

We start our day early and begin our trek to Monkorma with stunning view of the Ladakh Himalayas. The magical mountainscape continuously motivates us and keeps us really engaged, making us forget that we are trekking.

We are to tackle the steep climb to the top of Stok La, which serves us the very important purpose of acclimatization. Since we climb upto 4900 meters and sleep low at 4400 meters, it help us better acclimatize to the altitude for higher ones to come.

Stok La also offers some great views of the surrounding landscape. After spending some good time on the summit of Stok La, enjoying the views from the top, we descend down to the campsite of Mankormo. 

On reaching, we ease out for the day. Its been a rewarding day till now. Post tea, we go for slight walk around the place to explore further. Do not forget to sight the summit of Stok Kangri from here. Fix it on your eyes and your mind. We are gonna be there.. soon!!

According to the snow condition, there will be a demo of equipment to be used after the tea. After finishing that, we will also go for a short acclimatization walk. We will climb up the direct hill in front of us on the route to Stok Kangri. Its a higher ground, and also offers great views. If you have zoom lens, do try to zoom in and catch a glimpse of the Stok Kangri Summit.

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today we train you on some technicalities of mountaineering to be used on the trek. Use of ice axe, some rope work, roping up, etc. During June July and even early august some year, the quantity of snow are too much and these basic orientation helps us in achieving success on the summit.

While training and orientation is a part of it, our main objective is rest and acclimatization. We are to attempt the summit after midnight, so this rest is very much required. We sleep early and keep everything ready for the summit push, including the head lamps.

Day 7From Stok Kangri Base Camp To Stok Kangri Base Camp, Via - Stok Kangri Summit

Quick Information:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Today is THE DAY for us. We will attempt the Stok Kangri summit today. We start our long testing day to the summit post midnight around 1 AM in order to reach the summit on sunrise. All our previous day's efforts and acclimatization walks will be tested and brought into use today.

The route climbs up straight to the top of the hill we climbed previous day, and from there is descends to the glacier. A small crevasse can be negotiated with a slight jump, although in the dark, you should stay alert and together with the team. After you jump the crevasse and traverse the glacier, your next bid is to climb to the ridge leading to the summit of Stok Kangri. Never-ending switch backs follows and the high altitude makes it very slow.

Once you reach the ridge, the day might dawn. From the ridge, the trek to the summit is straight forward, although you need to be careful. After a continuous push of some 6 hours, you reach the top. of Stok Kangri. Standing there, you will realize, all the pain was worth taking to be where you are !!

While climbing is important, descending safely is more important. Descend usually is quite faster and you loose altitude very quick. We come back to the base camp and celebrate.

If time and energy allows, we descend down to Monkorma to rest for the night.

Accommodation: Tents
Meals: All Meals

Important Information
DYNAMIC PRICING: Our pricing system is Dynamic and the price is not fixed. Rather, it is based on the 'actual' team size which joins the trek with you and passes on the group discount benefit to all the members, irrespective of your own group which might be a Solo Trekking Member or a group of 2 or 3. We consider it a TEAM right away from the Booking process itself. The cost is initially on the higher side and as the team size increases with more participants, the price per head comes down. We initially charge just the booking amount to keep your slots booked. The final price shall be known later and balance amount needs to be paid 1 month before the trek start date. Last moment changes in the team size will be addressed as and when the team size changes between 1 month of the trek start date. Your invoice will detail all the historical changes made on the invoice amount.
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.

Hello everyone, Summitting stok kangri for a trekker is really a dream, as it is highest trekkable Summit. For this himalayan high shows you path and direction. We the team of 5 departed for summit of stok kangri at an altitude of 6153m in July. After 3 days of acclimatization we started our trek. Meanwhile we met our guide Monto Bhaiya known as hitlar. Professionally he is really hitlar but soft heartened person. He confirmed our equipments and suggested not to take diamox and told that it's his responsibility to take you to summit until and unless your mind stops you. The trek started and continues via rumbak, mankorma (stok LA in between at 5000m)and stok base camp. Our kitchen staff dinesh, dipesh and all others were really supportive enough and they gave qualitative food like eggs specially that dessert and hot drink in the night which really required by body for summit. On the summit day packaged food was given that consist of dry fruits and energy bars. Monto Bhaiya really a perfect guide who never let you down and gives clear instructions that we will summit. Summit day was really tough as we have to crossed glaciers and then through shoulder we had to reach to summit. After continuous trek of 17 hrs 2 person of our team submitted stok kangri. Then on base camp we cut the cake prepared by our chef dipesh for victory. That was really surprising and different impression. Next day we departed to leh via stok Village. And here the trek ends happily. What I will say ultimately is that food was awesome Guidance by Monto Bhaiya really hats off Equipments provided by HHAT 👍 Ultimately Mr Suman who helped us for long time to prepare us for this trek.

Stok-Kangri summit: wonderful experience, professional organization.preparedness guides If I go to Ladakh next time, would also like them! I recommend to everyone! It was a great experience of my life. Special thanks for Montu, Lapu and Suman!

I decided on a whim to go on a trek in India while I was working there for a few months. I reached out about a month before, and Suman replied with a few options for me. He responded very quickly to all of my emails and really smoothed the process along. The trek itself was amazing. On top of the convenience and service that Himalayan High provided, Montu, our guide, was very nice and helpful in all aspects. I would recommend this agency to anyone looking for a trek in Ladakh or Himachal! Thank you Suman, Montu, and Stanzin for making Stok Kangri an unforgettable experience!

Stok-Kangri summit: First of all thanks for Himalayan High! We really enjoyed our trek and we had 100% team success. There are more ways to get the summit. We had no enough time for trek before the summit so we decided to go via Rumbak. This route is a little longer, but I think it was a good decision because all of us acclimatized well enough for the summit and it is a really nice route via Stok La pass meanwhile many teams had problem because of high altitude. They provided us with all the information we needed from the beginning to the end of the trek. Special thanks for Montu, Lapu and Suman! I hope we’ll meet again in Ladakh! It was great. Tamas

The entire team at Himalayan High exemplified professionalism for the entire duration of our journey (climbing Stok Kangri). When we were deciding between tour outfitters, Suman was very communicative over Whatsapp while we figured out the details of the trip, which made planning very easy even though we were traveling in different parts of India at the time. He was responsive and helpful, customizing our trip to our needs. We didn't have cold weather gear or mountaineering boots with us, so Lapu (the local trip organizer in Leh) took us around the shops in Leh to help us get the appropriate clothing (buying some and renting some). He was knowledgeable about the clothing we needed and we had fun walking around Leh with him. The trip guides, Desel and Montu, were knowledgeable and professional, able to answer any questions we had and helpful for the entire duration of the trek. The porters were great too. We had tons of fun for the whole trek, and the summit day was spectacular -- not a cloud in the sky, so we climbed under a full moon. Climb Stok Kangri with Himalayan High!

Hi guys Jullay. Everything about the entire trip was just amazing. Of course, like every adventure or expedition in life, there are few observations. I will sit along with Aditya and apprise you of the same. Thanks to your planning, foresight and patience of the guide ( Paldang), two of us ( Self and Hari Om) summitted Stok Kangri on 9th morning, Aditya reached almost the shoulder. And all three of us completed the 72 km Khardung La ultra without any hiccups or injuries. Would surely join you for the higher and tougher expeditions in future. Would be nice if you could give us some kind of certificates for the summit.
