Day 5: : Rest, Safety Check and Acclimatization

As there is significant altitude left to gain in the following days, it is of importance that we spend a day for acclimatization. Furthermore, we use this day to rest and plan for climbing the next day. We check all climbing equipment which we need to carry for the expedition. This is mandatory for safety purposes.

Day 6: Summit Stok Kanari - Base Camp

The trek to the summit – Stok Kankri is divided into four phases. The first part comprises of reaching a pass from where you can spot the whole of the Leh district below. This would take around 45 mins. The second part comprises of crossing a large glacier. The time taken up to this place is another hour. For the third part, you will have to trek on steep slopes of the glacier. The snow covered terrain will be followed next. The snow will be deeper with every step; and following your guide is must. The final part consists of a hard trek to the ridge leading to Stok Kangri and getting to another large glacier. Crossing the Glacier will take us to the Summit.

The summit is surrounded by magnificent Himalayan peaks on all sides. The sight makes up for all the training, exhaustion & fatigue. The descend starts after an hour. It wouldn’t be as difficult as the climb was. We will reach the base camp within a couple of hours. A good night’s sleep at the camp would help wind us up for the day.
