Leh / Mankarmo/ Base Camp / Summit/ Leh
It is one of the most easily accessible Peaks above 6000 metres. Stok village is a 30 minutes drive from Leh town. Besides the climb, the trek is famous for its colorful shades of mountains and view of Stok Range. It can be summated in minimum 4-5 days. It can be approached from different villages and Stok village is the most famous starting point of this trek. Stok Kangri is famous among amateurs as well as experienced climbers. People from all over the world try to make it, to the top of Stok Kangri Summit. It is a non-technical climb peak. Use of crampons and ice-axe depends on conditions. It is, in no way, an easy trek. The only reason this trek is considered a difficult one is due to the height (altitude) of the peak.
We start driving from Leh in the morning to Stok village, its 14 Kms./30 minutes drive .From Stok we start trekking towards Mankarmo, which is around 9 Kms. Today the walk is almost through a gorge with some ascends but not steep. And in the afternoon arrive at Mankarmo- 4300m, which is a pasture land of Stok village.
After a good breakfast ,we continue to ascend gently. After a while the valley divides and we have a beautiful view of Stok Kangri from the west. We then ascent to a flat area and arrive at the base camp. From base camp we climb up the steep path to a small pass at the top of ridges. From the ridges we follow the trail towards south west and arrive at advanced base camp 5300m, the place is surrounded by beautiful landscapes
This day is important for acclimatizing with the harsh environment and to the altitudes. Today, we train with our Guide by going around the surrounding hills and discussing the trek which starts during the midnight or early morning next day. Just read a book, write diaries or just take it easy.
(NOTE:If you are a very good climber/trekker, you can skip this day)
We wake up around midnight or early morning, we will have a cup of tea or coffee and follow the trail towards south east ridge by climbing a slope and maybe we have to use a rope and arrive at the summit (6150m) after walking through loose rock. The Stok kangri summit offers spectacular views of snow-capped mountains and the great Karakorum ranges. We follow the same route for the descent to base camp 5000m.
After breakfast we start trekking back through the same route to the village, its around 13 Kms. down, where a car will be waiting for us, and drive back to Leh.
