Stok Kangri climb, mountaineering in Ladakh
Summit of Stok Kangri, mountaineering in Ladakh

6-day Stok Kangri climb (6153m)
Fixed departures

--- € per person


Stok Kangri has been closed since 2020. This measure has been taken in order to protect the glacier which is the main source of water for Stok village. As of now, there is no confirmation whether the peak will reopen in 2024.

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.
