6-day Stok Kangri climb (6153m)
Stok Kangri is closed in 2021 and 2022. This measure has been taken in order to protect the glacier which is the main source of water for Stok village.
Stok Kangri (6153m) is the most popular 6000m+ peak in Ladakh. The climb does not require mountaineering skills but a good physical condition and a proper acclimatization are essential for a successful summit attempt.
Starting from Zingchen and crossing Stok La pass is an excellent way to acclimatize to the altitude.
