Stok Kangri – Kang Yatse I 2018 Expedition

Presentation

ky I 2

Region : Ladakh / Duration : 34 days – 22 days trekking & climbing / Fixed departure : end of June / Level : very difficult / 4 to 8 participants 

Kiang Adventures proposes to a small group (from 4 to 8 people) of experienced walkers and/or warned climbers to live an outstanding adventure in Indian Himalaya in June-July, 2018.

To the program, besides the discovery of Ladakh, an extremely beautiful, approachable Himalayan region only three in four months a year in summer, the ascent of two summits peaking at more than 6000 meters in height, the STOK KANGRI and the KANG YATSE I.

Stok Kangri could be considered as the ultimate trek : this summit situated in 6145 meters does not ask for real climbing skill but does not remain not less extremely difficult there to achieve : height extreme, night ascent of a wall of snow / ice to be climbed during 6 at 8 hours, steep ridges, encordage and final ascent. He really constitutes the stage of ideal acclimatization before confronting to the Kang Yatse I.

This one, situated in 6420 meters in height and including a final ascent of 500 meters in bundle is as for him a real Himalayan summit !
His ascent requires a minimum of technique in climbing on ice and snow and a preliminary training but does not present – except the extreme height – no major technical difficulty, except a preliminary acclimatization, an experience (highly preferable) confirmed by the high mountain, the will of every moment and – as already mentioned higher – an irreproachable physical condition.

These two ascents will be preceded by a trekking of acclimatization (in the Sham Valley) in the beginning of expedition, allowing a progressive adaptation to the height, then, following the ascent of Stok Kangri, a trek of a week for a progressive and gradual approach towards the Kang Yatse I.

Kiang Adventures has carefully – as for each of the journeys that we propose – consisted this exclusive program for the mountain lovers and the infinite spaces in a concern of progressiveness and balance, to allow every participant to optimize his chances of success in a really exceptional adventure !
