The trek to Stok Kangri, one of the highest trekkable peaks in the world, will take you high in the Himalayas and is a must for mountaineers and hikers visiting the region. Trekked during the summer months, the Stok Kangri will offer amazing conditions and scenery while pushing your physical boundaries.
Despite not being extremely technical during the first few days, the Stok Kangri trek presents difficulties during summit day. For this reason, it is preferred that trekkers have previous experience in mountaineering and hiking at high altitude. Altitude is indeed a major consideration as the risks of AMS (Acute Mountain Syndrome) increase with every step you take towards the summit, so make sure to stay hydrated and to share any altitude sickness symptoms with your guide. Finally, check that your travel insurance covers hiking in altitudes above 3000m. !!! THE STOK KANGRI TREK IS CLOSED FROM 2020 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Local authorities have taken this measure in order to protect the glacier and the surrounding environment. !!!
