Stok Kangri which is of 6,154 metres is the highest mountain in the Stok Range of the Himalayas. It is situated in the Ladakh region of north part of India in the Hemish National Park. The trail heads to 3,610 metres in the village of Stokand which is around 15 km southwest of the city of Leh; capital of Ladakh. Stok Kangri is a renowned trekking peak which is often climbed as an initial non-technical foray into high altitude mountaineering. Ascent to Stok Kangri makes an enduring challenge. In late July and August, all but the top of the peak may be snow-free. Over the last few years, Stok Kangri has become tremendously popular amongst trekkers and novice mountaineers due to its non-technical nature.
The peak is considered non-technical from July–August, but becomes quite technical during the height of winter. Despite its relative ease, the 6,153 m peak presents the usual challenges of a mountaineering expedition. Acclimatization in Leh, particularly for those who fly in from Delhi, before attempting the trek as altitude acclimatization during the the ascent, is essential.
