Kangyatse
The Kangyatse peak (6,400 meters.) lies south east of Leh and is reached via the famous Markha Valley trek of 9 days. There are many other peaks around Kangyatse on the altitude range of 5,500 meters and 6,400 meters, which are also available for climbing in the Nimaling plateau.

Stok Kangri
A wonderful opportunity to explore the Buddhist Ladakh region of North India and attempt a 6000m trekking peak.
Culturally Ladakh is part of the former Guge kingdom of Western Tibet and still has strong affinities with Buddhist culture - monasteries, chortens and prayer flags fill the stark and startling landscape. The mountain scenery is equally dominant, this region being known as the Trans -Himalaya, with innumerable 6000m peaks sandwiched between the Great Himalayan Range and the Tibetan Plateau. This is high altitude desert, beyond the influence of the Indian monsoon. The winters are long and cold with temperatures reaching -40 deg C; the summers hot and rainless, save for the occasional storm bringing snow to the mountains. The region was virtually self -sufficient until about 25 years ago when new air and road connections brought in tourists and money. Leh, the ancient capital, has naturally changed the most although the legacy of its isolated past is still very apparent. In many of the outlying villages and settlements little has changed and the barley crop is still the fulcrum around which life revolves. To the south of Leh and high above the Indus Valley stands the 6000m peak of Stok Kangri. This short but adventurous trek takes us into the heart the Trans -Himalaya for an attempt on this non-technical trekking peak. Our route is challenging but not difficult and there is plenty of time to acclimatise in and around Leh and on the walk in. The peak is entirely optional and there are many excellent walks from the base camp with equally rewarding views. In our view, this is the perfect first 6000m peak for the enthusiastic walker with experience at higher altitude.
