A classic trek to a spectacular 6000m peak in Ladakh. The Stok range lies on the southern skyline of Leh, the capital of Ladakh, and Stok Kangri is the highest mountain in the range. During the first two days set aside for acclimatisation we visit the colourful monasteries of Shey & Thiksey and checkout the charming market in Leh. We set off on our 4 day acclimatization trek to the Base Camp starting from Matho Village and then over the Matho La. The climb up to the summit is technically straightforward and safe of any objective dangers. On the summit stretch, we cross a glacier and then a steep climb on to the south ridge from where it is an exposed walk right up to the summit. It’s a challenging climb even for the fittest of the climbers and is a great adventure in Himalayan mountaineering.

Show Detailed Itinerary
The flight takes us over the Greater Himalayas and makes an exciting landing at one of the highest airports in the world. Transfer to hotel. Overnight at hotel.
Visit the famous monasteries of Shey & Thiksey. Back to hotel for lunch. Overnight at hotel.
Today we make an early start from Leh and drive to Matho Village with a beautiful monastery, which is the start point of our trek. We walk about 2 to 3 hrs to our campsite just next to Mathu Chu River. For acclimatization purpose we camp at a lower altitude and keep the day easy. Overnight Camp.
We continue going up the Matho Chu till we reach a fork. We take the trail on the right and climb steadily till we reach a high point. Gangpoche is straight ahead next to the shepherd huts. We camp in the camping ground below the hill. Overnight Camp.
An easy day with a gradual ascent of about 2.5 to 3 hours to Matho La with many prayer flags fluttering. From here we descent steeply on a switchback trail to Mankarmo which has a big parachute cafe. A great chance to view wild mountain goats on this trail. Today is also the day when you get your first views of Stok Kangri peak. Overnight Camp.
We are now on the trail connecting the Stok village to the base camp. The base camp is a short walk from here but we do gain a substantial altitude. Overnight Camp.
Relax at the base camp which also houses one of the biggest & best stocked parachute cafés in Ladakh. A small excursion to a high point and back. Overnight Camp.
We have reserved two days for the climb which would allow for contingencies due to bad weather. Fluttering with prayer flags the summit rewards with wide open views, the Karakoram Range & Ladakh range on the north, the Zanskar range on the west and a bird’s eye view of the Indus valley and the Leh city. Later descend to base camp. Overnight Camp.
Walk all the way back down to the base camp through the same route. We reach Base Camp by afternoon. Get the much needed rest before the celebration starts of by evening. Overnight Camp.
We exit out of the Stok valley at Stok village and then drive for another 1hour to Leh. Overnight at hotel.
