FAQ - KANG YATSE II CLIMB


There are three ways to reach Ladakh- a) you can take flight from Delhi to Leh from major airlines such as Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Indigo and Go Airlines. b) You can take road journeys either from Manali or Srinagar. It takes 2 day journey (474 kilometers) from Manali to Leh via Keylong with a night stopover in Sarchu. On the other hand, Srinagar to Leh will take 2 days (434 kilometers) with a night halt at Kargil. All the roads remain open from May to October.

Some common symptoms of high altitude sickness include giddiness, loss of appetite, lack of sleep and difficulty in breathing. The best way to acclimatize in Ladakh is a natural rest for at least 48 hours, keep yourself well hydrated and  eat well. Even then it depends from person to person as to how long it takes to acclimatize before trekking in the Himalayas.

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.  

Kang Yatze II is a moderate climbing expedition to a peak above 6000m. The climb also has a physically demanding trek before to help you acclimatize well for the trek. You will be camping above 4000m almost throughout the trek while your summit basecamp will be about 4900m.These climbs generally have a short approach march and a challenging summit day which is attempted from a base camp or an advance base camp. The climb will require basic climbing skills and would involve being roped up on glacial terrain and climbing with mountaineering boots and crampons in excess of 10 hours on the summit night. Some climb may even require you to climb on fixed rope on steep terrain. The level of difficulty both physically and technically is a notch above a trekking peak.
