The Plan

Day 1

Reach Leh (11400ft)

Travel Not Included

Hotel

Meals Not Included

Our journey to Stok begins the moment we reach Leh. Leh is easily accessible in the month of July. We can choose to fly down to Leh directly from Delhi or take the picturesque and challenging Manali - Leh Highway to reach Leh. Though flying down to Leh is an easier option and saves a lot of time, reaching Leh by road gives our body ample time and opportunity to acclimatize. The Great Escape team would advice the participants to reach Leh by road. As we pass 3 high altitude passes and stay overnight at Keylong, our body gets used to the high altitude and makes the acclimatization process for the Stok Kangri summit easier.
The Route:
Manali – Rohtang (13051ft) – Gramphu – Kokhsar – Keylong – Jispa – Darcha – Zingzingbar – Baralacha La (16043ft) – Bharatpur – Sarchu – Gata Loops – Nakee La – Lachulung La – Pang – Tanglang La (17582ft) – Gya – Upshi – Karu – Leh
IF YOU PLAN TO COME TO LEH BY ROAD, START FROM MANALI ON THE 9th OF JULY. Reach out to us for further details

Spend this day exploring the vibrant capital of Ladakh, Leh. Leh is a powehouse of beauty and culture. The market and the streets hustle and bustle with both tourists and locals alike. The local cuisine is lip smacking and there are dozens of monasteries and ancient temples that can be visited. Take the day slow, especially if you have arrived to Leh by flight. Breathe in the fresh air and let your body get used to the altitude, for an experience that will change your life forever will begin tomorrow


Day 3

Leh (11400) to Stok Village (11800ft) to Changma (13087ft) to Manokarma (14200 ft)

Our journey begins.
Take the scenic road to Stok Village. The drive is an adventurous one and is full of natural beauty. The Stok village lies immediately to the south of Leh and it is well known for a royal palace. The recently crowned king of Ladakh lives here. There is also a small museum inside the palace which has beautiful and religious artifacts.

It takes 3 hours to reach Chang Ma, our midway point of our Day 1 trek. The trail passing through the barren lands of Ladakh looks magical and divine. Trek along the beautiful Stok River towards Chang Ma where we halt for a much needed break and lunch. At 13000 ft, we will start noticing the effects of the altitude. It's another 3 hours treks through rock strewn path to our campsite Manokarma. Manokarma camp, at a height of 14,200 feet, is similar to Chang Ma, poised in a valley, but wider. Stok river flows close to our tents and dominates all the other nature sounds. Spend the evening at the campsite, relaxing and getting used to the high altitude.


Day 4

Manokarma (14200ft) to Base Camp (16300ft)

Trek

All_Meals

A few hours trek takes you back to the base camp. This day will show us the real beauty of ladhak and gives us the answer why ladhak is known as cold desert. Though the trek is relatively easy, the altitude and even slightly steep slopes will leave us gasping for air.
At a height of 16,300 feet, it is important to acclimatize well. Walking around leisurely with ears open would help a great deal in acclimatization. We will plan an acclimatization walk for the team. " Walk high, sleep low" From the base camp we can even view some beautiful peaks like like Gulap Kangri and Parcha Kangri.


Day 5

Acclimatization Day

Wake up early morning. After breakfast, the team would head off for a planned acclimatization walk. An appx altitude gain of 500 m will be attempted. Come back to the campsite during lunch time.
Post lunch, spend the evening resting. Our Summit attempt to Stok Kangri may start anytime between 10:00 pm - 1:00 am depending on the snow and weather conditions. Ensure your body is well rested for it will be a push to the summit.


Day 6

Base Camp (16200 ft) to Summit (20100ft) to Base Camp (16200ft)

The day has finally arrived. We will wake you up early in the morning to start the climb. Gear up well. Right attire is extremely important for a successful summit
From the base camp climb up to the pass. From there cross the glacier. We may come across crevasses. Once we cross the glacier, the challenge begings. What stands in front of is is the steep slope leading to the summit ridge. Climbing up a 60 degree inclination at 18000 ft is a no easy task. But do not stop, for a reward is waiting for us. We push ourselves up the steep slope to the summit ridge. The ridge is a tricky part. We may be roped up for safety reasons. The summit is clearly visible from the ridge and at a reachable distance. Traverse across the ridge to the final climb of the summit. Push through the last few meters to reach the top. YOU HAVE MADE IT:)
The view from the top is breath taking.There are no words to describe the feeling of pure joy that you feel when you stand on the top. Feel proud for you have pushed yourself against all odds to reach the top of the highest trekkable peak in Leh. The summit offers you great views of the area. The wide and open surroundings give you a royal feeling. Towards the north, you would get a view of the Karakoram range. The Saser Kangri dominates the sky in the north along with the Karakoram, and the Zansker ranges in the south. Take some moment on the top and then head back to the base camp.


Day 7

Base Camp (16200 ft) to Stok Village (11800ft)

"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !

They value the time & money spent by their customers. This unique experience – it is much and seriously appreciated. Continue delivering the same 👏 Hope to join more trekking/trips in future with The Great Escape 😊 Best wishes to grow big & bigger 👍

I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
