Trip Overview

STOK KHANGRI is one of the highest trekking peaks in the world. It is the highest peak of the Stok range. The massive peak stand in front of Markha Valley with an elevation of 20100 Ft / 6130 M, and is higher than the highest mountain in Europe, Mt. Elbrus at 18510 Ft / 5644 M and it is even higher than the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro at 19340 Ft / 5897 M. It stands high from the two of the highest mountains across two different continents and is, without a doubt, a crowned jewel of India. The biggest and the only challenge on this trek is the summit day, where you have to brave sub-zero temperatures, trek on a glacier for about 6-7 hours at night, and walk on the ridge line for about two hours to reach the summit. Although it does not require any technical experience, by no means is it meant for beginners.
