High Places began in India. 1987 saw our very first trip set off to trek in the Garhwal Himalayas in north India. We have gradually widened our destinations and now also go to Ladakh, Sikkim and to Kerala. If you are looking for an authentic, energetic yet sensitive holiday in India we are the specialists.
Ladakh Stok Kangri Trek is a classic trek; the perfect challenge for trekkers who want to summit a Himalayan peak. With its panoramic summit view, Stok Kangri (6150m) is the highest mountain in the Stok region of the Indian Himalayas; it lies to the south of Leh, situated within Hemis National Park. Having acclimatised well, the Ladakh Stok Kangri Trek allows you to climb a 6000m peak in less than a week. Even though the climb is classed as non-technical, it requires the use of crampons and ice axe, and usually we rope up along the ridge.
The summit is marked with colourful prayer flags. It also displays some of the most prized views of the Saser Kangri (7670mts) peak in the Karakoram Range. This range includes the world’s second highest peak, K2 (8611m), along with the stunning Kang Yatse (6400m) and Nun Kun, the highest peak on the Indian side of the Himalayas (7135m).
