15 dagen vanaf € 2.105,- (excl. vlucht)

Food

  • All breakfasts, 8 lunches and 8 dinners included. All meals except for main meals in Delhi and Leh are included; please allow about GBP70 (approx. USD115) for these. Whilst camping, the staff will bring a hot drink (usually tea) to your tent each morning and on arrival at camp in the afternoons, you will be served with a choice of hot drinks and biscuits. Breakfasts typically include cereal, toast and jam, eggs and porridge. Lunch on trek is usually served as a picnic en route (except on shorter days when it is in camp). Lunch and dinner typically include soup to start, followed by a variety of hot dishes (both local and western) such as potatoes/chips, vegetables, curry, pasta, rice, dhal and paneer (cottage cheese). Dinner will also include a dessert and a choice of hot drinks. Please note that although some meals will include meat, it is not as readily available whilst camping. *Drinking Water* Staying hydrated is important when undertaking any physical activity but particularly so at altitude where it is generally recommended to drink at least 3-4 litres per person per day. We strongly encourage you not to buy bottled water as this contributes to the growing problem of plastic pollution in Ladakh.  In Leh, there is a shop called Dzomsa which sells safe drinking water. Your leader will show you where this is on your first day in Leh. During the trek and whilst in camp the cooks will collect and boil drinking water from the mountain streams and fill up your water bottles for you, but you may need to collect water during the day and may wish to use your own water purification treatment as well. We also suggest that you may like to bring a reusable bottle with a wide opening (Nalgene or similar) with you and use a SteriPEN to treat any non-boiled water. A SteriPEN is a handheld UV water purifier – small, lightweight and battery powered so easy to pack for a trek. It’s quick to use, far more effective than purification tablets, and the water is ready immediately. It’s fine to use a SteriPEN on non-boiled water so long as it isn’t cloudy or full of sediment (which is uncommon in these regions). SteriPENs are widely stocked on Amazon, outdoor shops and other online retailers; look for the latest models but avoid USB charging ones. Using a SteriPEN means you won’t leave behind a single plastic bottle – and you can keep it for future trips.

Route 15 daagse rondreis Ladakh: Stok Kangri Climb

High above the Indus Valley, this rarely trodden route traverses the magnificent Ladakh Mountains and culminates with the chance to ascend Stok Kangri (6153m). We leave the Zanskar River behind and ascend from lush valleys to the tops of high passes from which towering rock cathedrals rise. The dramatic, stark scenery of this high altitude desert is softened only by the immense charm of the Ladakhi villages and their hardy inhabitants. We acclimatise on Palam Peak and cross the rarely used Kang La pass to Base Camp. The summit climb itself is tough but entirely optional and there is an alternative glacier trek for anyone not wishing to attempt it. From the summit, panoramic views extend across Ladakh to the Karakorams, the Himalaya and into Tibet.

  2. Dag 2 - Fly to Leh (3500m); afternoon orientation walk.
  3. Dag 3 - Acclimatisation day in and around Leh; trips to Shey and Tikse Monasteries.
