Stok Kangri Trek - Climb Stok Kangri

Important Notice: Stoke Kangri was closed from 2020. The reason for the closure was to protect the glacier, the main source of water for the village of Stoke. As of now, there is no confirmation whether the peak will reopen in 2024.


The peak of Stoke Kangri, visible from Leh city, attracts thousands of trekkers every year to reach its peak. The Stok Khangri scenery is typical of the high altitude desert; Tough and beautiful. It is an arid landscape of deep valleys rising to perennially snow-capped peaks. Views from the peak overlook the Zanskar and Karakoram ranges, and on a clear day, K2 can be seen in the distance.

So, you will It should be well acclimatized to the altitude before starting the trek. On the day of the summit, you will leave the base camp at 1 am and return to the base camp only in the afternoon. The climb is tiring and requires a good amount of endurance both physically and mentally. Stoke Khangri includes the use of climbing equipment (harness, ice axe, crampons, mountaineering boots, ascenders). But we also offer a climbing course at the base camp before the actual climb where your guide will teach you the proper way to use the equipment.

Therefore; several approaches to the summit of Stoke Kangri, all of which start and end in Leh. Pass through different valleys to reach the summit. These approaches eventually rejoin Mana karma and from this point, there is an upward and downward path. So June, July and August are the favorite months. Please choose a date that suits you.
