The Stok Kangri expedition is 13 days in total and is suitable for experienced trekkers who have a good level of fitness. Towering at an impressive 6153 metres, Stok Kangri is a serious challenge. Although at such an impressive height, it is not a technical climb and requires no advanced mountaineering skills. We work our way up to base camp over a number of days to maximise acclimatisation and improve chances of a successful summit attempt. The view from the top is one of the best in the Himalaya, offering great views of the Zanskar and Karakoram ranges including K2 (8611m), the second highest peak in the world. This is one of the best trekking peaks in the Indian Himalaya and its proximity to Leh makes it very accessible. Ladakh, often referred to as ‘Little Tibet’, is characterised by Buddhist culture and tradition. Visits to monasteries, palaces, markets and remote villages are all included in this expedition. As well as enjoying 10 fantastic days in Ladakh you will see Delhi’s best sights and enjoy plenty of retail therapy.Click here for more details.
This historic Everest Base Camp trek (5364m) is one of the most famous expeditions in the world. Mt Everest (8848m), the worlds highest mountain is known as Sagarmatha “sky head” in Nepalese and Chomulungma “the mother goddess of the earth” in Tibetan. The scenery is truly breathtaking with mixed forest, flower filled meadows, glaciers, rivers and spectacular mountainous panoramas throughout. Located in the Khumbu region of eastern Nepal our route takes us through Sherpa villages, bazaars and Buddhist monasteries. Trekkers come away with a great appreciation of the Sherpa way of life, their mountain culture and traditions. This Everest Base Camp itinerary includes 12 days of trekking and has been designed with acclimatisation in mind. This makes the trip more enjoyable and gives everyone the best chance to reach base camp. We also spend two nights in Kathmandu and enjoy time to explore the capital. This unforgettable adventure is perfect for those looking for a challenging trek to the foot of the world’s highest mountain.
