Stok Kangri is at an amazing height of 20, 080 ft. (6, 153 m) and is the highest mountain in the Stok range of Himalayas. It is 24 kms from the district of Leh. Even though the trek is the most glamorous one, it is by no means an easy trek. Only very few people who attempt, succeed to reach the Stok Kangri Peak. People from all over the world come here to endeavour this amazing trek to the summit.
Though, the Stok Kangri trek does come along with some challenges, some of them being dealing with thin air on high altitudes. For this very reason, the first three days are reserved for acclimatisation. The route taken to the summit is among the shortest. Begin with an ascend from the charming Stok Village. The experience entails crossing a glacier, climbing long stretches and manoeuvring and long and steep ridge leading to the peak. Feast your eyes on Ladakh range, Zanskar range, Indus valley and Leh City. Also during the Stok Kangri trekking, make way through Hemis National Park that is renowned for the endangered snow leopard.
