Stok Kangri is the pride of Ladakh & one of the least explored 6000mt summits in India. Be the one to join the elite club of trekkers to have conquered the 20000ft / 6000mt peak. Being at 20K feet, it is still considered as an easy peak as this peak does not require technical skills. Having said that, on the summit stretch, we will cross a glacier and then a steep climb on to the south ridge from where it is an exposed walk right up to the summit. It’s a challenging climb even for the fittest of the climbers and is a great adventure in Himalayan mountaineering.
This trek is indeed for experienced trekker who has done a few high altitude treks in the past.
Acclimatization is key to this trek. A trekker needs is another trek(during the course of this trek itself) that climbs to at least 15,500 feet (4,700 – 5,000 mts) before attempting Stok Kangri summit for better acclimatization. We have taken care of that in our itinerary.

LUNGS – Push your lungs, Most critical work in any high altitude trek is of the LUNGS. They are at over work as they get very less oxygen & physical exertion will push them harder for 1.5 month prior to the trek.
MUSCLES -A well stretched & healthy muscles make the trek that much more easier. Focus on Legs, Back, Neck & Shoulder. 20min of focused stretching activities for 45 days will help. It determines the amount of movement your bones can make in any direction around joints such as shoulders, elbows, hips and knees. Stretching improves your posture and helps to prevent low back pain.
