Stok Kangri(6150m) is the highest walking peak in India and draws a lot of climbers due to its height and non technicality. Kang Yatse II (6250m), Mentok Kangri (6210m), Golep Kangri (5900m) and Nun (7135mts) ,Kun (7085mts) are other famous mountaineering peaks.

If we have to organize a trek near Leh, the transportation cost and carriage cost is less expensive. Markha Valley trek is more accessible from Leh than the Rumtse to Tsomoriri trek, therefore it will be cheaper than it. Horses to carry your luggage also play an important component to trek cost. Ultimately though, it is the services that the client or the groups require and want i.e accommodation,food, experiences, etc that will determine your trek or adventure cost.

There are various price points in Ladakh for accommodations. From home stay/guesthouses to boutique hotels to luxury hotels and camps, travelers can pick and choose according to the budget.

Mentok Kangro II climb is a tough high altitude trek in Ladakh. The trek starts from Tso kar, a salt lake in Eastern part of Ladakh and ends at Tso Moriri Lake, a beautiful High altitude lake in Changthang, which is also the breeding ground to birds like the Black-necked Crane, Tibetan Sandgrouse, Bar-headed geese, etc. The barren region is home to numerous species of wildlife including the wild ass (Kiang), Himalayan Marmot, and if lucky, spot the Tibetan Argali and Himalayan Wolf. The route traverses across a number of high passes and multiple 5000m passes making it a physically demanding trek. This 13 day trekking holiday in Ladakh will require good fitness to finish and prior camping experience is always a bonus. Acclimatizing well before this trek is a must.
