Introduction To The Stok Kangri With Golep Kangri
- Popular Names: Stok Kangri Golep Kangri

Stok Kangri with Golep Kangri

Stok Kangri is a challenging trekking peak in Ladakh. Highly inspired trekkers always tries to push their limit and take things forward, in anything they do. The climb to the summit of Stok Kangri just fits in..  for a beginner or for someone with previous trekking experience in low altitudes, this peak offers immense challenge, and the one who accepts those excels further and ventures deep and higher in the remoteness of the Himalayas. They are the true Himalayan High Seekers..

Goleb Kangri stands tall in the same Stok range of the mountains at an altitude of just below 6000 meters ( 5950m). We have designed this itinerary to attempt both the summits in the same itinerarey with just one extra day required. The attempt on the summit of Golep Kangri provides good exposure and acclimatization regime before attempting the summit of Stok Kangri which is about 200 meters higher. However, at that altitude, the difference of 200 meters seems like 2000 meters at lower altitude.

Both these peaks are trekking peaks and does not require mountaineering techniques to reach its summit. Having the correct skills and attitude definitely help a lot though.

The dangers of Stok Kangri lies in its extremely high altitude in the cold desert land of Ladakh, where the wind is very dry. Proper planning results in successful summit of the peak. You need to be in good physical condition and possess immense mental endurance and positive attitude.

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.

In late May and Early June, both the peaks have good amount of snow and makes for a good summit attempt for those who like to further increase the difficulties. July to September typically has low snow on the ridge and is comparatively easier. However, less snow exposes the boulders and hence the exposure on the other side of the ridge is still requires careful negotiations. We do this trek via the Stok La to acclimatize better with a rest day and orientation training in the base camp.

Come, accept the challenge offered by these twin summits of Golep Kangri and Stok Kangri. Team Himalayan High will help you reach your goal with easy arrangements and professional climbing leaders.

Table of Contents

  • Twin summit of Stok Kangri and Golep Kangri. Climbing Stok Kangri is an accomplishment in itself and can be treated as an introduction to mountaineering in the Himalayas. When clubbed with Golep Kangri Summit, it becomes more of a training ground for further higher ventures in the Himalayas
  • No mountaineering techniques required: This is probably a very rare opportunity 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.

  • The culture and villages of Ladakh are an experience in itself.
