Introduction To The Stok Kangri With Golep Kangri
- Popular Names: Stok Kangri With 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. 
  • 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. 
  • The culture and villages of Ladakh are an experience in itself.

Its advised that you drink adequate water before boarding your flight to Leh. Also, have a Vaseline handy to apply to your nostrils to moisten it, if you feel the air is too dry and cold to breathe easily.

Today its very crucial that we take enough rest and acclimatize properly to successfully reach the summit of Stok Kangri, which is further high at 6153 meters

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!!

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.
