    Our long day will start just after midnight (01 am) from the base camp with our head lamps showing us the route for a couple of hours till the down. From the base camp there is a steep climb to the ridge just above the camp and we will get our rhythm for the climb to come. As we pass through the ridge we cross glacier which we negotiate carefully and we will find the permanent snow line with steep icy slope of Stok kangri peak. The final ridge with rocky section will lead us to the summit. July and August there is lesser snow making the climb easier relatively to its earlier May-June. As we reach on the top of Stok Kangri peak (6153m) we see all around us many snowy glaciers and high mountains. The summit rewards us with wide open views of the Karakoram and Ladakh range on the north, and the Zanskar range towards south- west side. We also see the bird's eye view of the Indus valley and the Leh city. Enjoy the feeling of having achieved a difficult task of climbing a 6000m+ peak and take a few pictures before climbing down to the base camp.

Have done treks with Adventure Trips India & Kundan, to Tapovan, Kuari Pass and Tungnath we would strongly recommend him to anyone wanting to organize a trek in the Himalayas. He has a great team and is a very good organizer. His knowledge of the areas trekked, his quiet confidence that keeps you reassured and his ability to adjust to the capacity of the group are qualities that make him the person we keep coming back to all our treks..
