First, I would like to say thank you to shyam@thrillophilia.com for their coordination and cooperation.The trip was well planned and executed extremely well by the tour operators, I am very happy with the services provided by thrillophilia during this trek. 1) Our trek leaders Salman and Stenzin are really a wonderful Guys, they were very helpful and supportive all the time during trekking.Other staff members were also supportive and helpful. 2) Food quality and quantity was good. 3) Accommodation was good, camps were in good shape, neat and clean and quite spacious. Let's review the Trek. No doubt Stok trek was awesome as well as difficult. It would not be correct if I will say Stok trek is the most beautiful trek ???? but there is something which makes this trek different from all other treks and which is the main reason to attract tourist from every corner of the word, that is its height. At 20,500 feet Stok Kangri is the highest trekkable summit in India (6,153 m), what google says but when I googled it bit more and try to find if there is any other trek exist in this word which is above Stok, I did not get any information so I assume this is the highest trekkable summit in world ???? Highlights of this Trek 1) Trekking till base camp is not very tiring, which itself a big achievement as you would be able to achieve the height of 16300 feet ???? and the best part what I found in this trek is “you don’t need to walk too many hours to reach base camp” 2-4 hours walk a day is max you will walk. 2) Leh treks are totally different from Himachal and Uttrakhand treks in terms of scenic beauty, it’s a different experience, you would be able to see some splendid views of the Stok mountain ranges. 3) The last day “Summit day” will give you a totally different experience. You start your trek at night time which generally don’t happen in other treks. Moreover, you will get a chance to do snow trekking in summers as well “Only in summit Day”. Here is a great saying "the best view comes after the hardest climb" Very True!!! Preparation: I should say this is not a trek for first time trekkers but still if someone wants to give a try, Start your preparation at least 2 months before this trek as last day “Summit Day” is really a challenging one, compare to other days where you have to just walk 2-4 hours max here on final day you have to walk for a 12 – 14 hours and trekking at night on Snow is bit tricky task and it becomes more challenging when you have to walk by putting Crampons on your shoes. a) Aim for 5 km running in 30 minutes b) Do breathing exercise which helps you a lot during this trek especially. c) Drink as much as water you can.

It was an amazing trekking expedition...Though short but quite steep and rocky terrain....Caming is not easy since at night the temperature gets too low. But for sight exploring stok kangri seems to be an ideal location. You can spot the beautiful Indus river, Leh city and the zanskar ranges too.

The journey of heaven starts from stok village , i experienced an unique feeling after exploring the beautiful region of old hemis and gompa regions on our fourth day of trekking. Explored all nearby villages and monasteries, we also interacted with local villagers and shepherds.

Stok Kangri trek was fixed last minute. No idea I had how this trek will be going to. But my family was also happy to come with me to do the challenging trek. We sought help from Thrillophilia to plan a trip to Stok Kangri along with some other regions in Ladakh for 10 days. It went out nicely than I expected. Firstly, the trip started late due to rain but after it started, the movement was at a steady pace. We went to the starting point of the trek and other places in a jeep and only some distance we covered by trekking. But those stretches were really amazing. The surroundings are full of mountains and rough lands. But Stok Kangri is differently beautiful. Natural beauty at its best. We went to Leh by flight from Mumbai. Met the tour guides there and started our trip. We had fun throughout the trip watching the towering peaks and the huts along the roads. It is a great place for family trips. But the cold climate may let you feel tired and sick but if you prepare well before heading out to the sites, you can escape from being sick.

If you are fit enough, you will love this trek more than any other treks. Me and Boy friend took this trek last year and we all were astounded with its mesmeric beauty. Really, no other trekking trails can be more fascinating and appealing as the ones in this trek. The other Himalayan peaks around makes the perfect backdrops. It was a memorable 9 days trip. Especially the difficulties and on overcoming them, we got the most of our kicks.

Woohoo! What a way to see Ladakh and its beauty. Being at the highest motorable pass i.e. Khardung-La. also climbing at the peak after a struggle, really makes you realise how small and insignificant you really are!! Thanks to the trek leaders and the organisers for making sure that everything went through smoothly.

There is nothing like experiencing a ride on the highest motorable pass in the world and this Stok Kangri Trek helped me achieve that. I was stunned at the beauty of this trek and was so excited to do it alone with a couple of new friends I made along the way. Even though there are professionals and instructors to help you, for this trek you need to have prior experience in trekking moderate altitudes. This was an amazing journey for me and i cherish the memories everyday till date.

While planning for our next trek, this trek sounded appealing to all of us and we were finally on it. Everything about the trek was wonderful. From the very first day in Leh to the trek to Stok Kangri to the last day of the trek, the entire group had the best trekking experience.

For me I always though Ladakh is all about monasteries and bike trips but well Stok Kangri trek changed my this thinking. Its such a beautiful trek and the place is simply beautiful, the best thing is that such places are still hidden from the control of man and I guess that's what help in sustaining the charm of this place.

zanskar ranges, indus valley , karakoram ranges and the beautiful Leh city is visible from the summit point. Stok Kangri is a fine kind of trekking that gets finished in short time. Some intermediate points are really good place for your camping.

I really liked the temperature and weather conditions of stok kangri, it was neither too cold nor hot...just perfect for trekking and camping conditions.Before embarking on the trek you must listen to your guide and arrange all neccessary things.Better to be in a group since it makes exploring easier. Over all it is a fantastic location.

Watching the snow clad peaks in the Himalayan ranges was one of my long time wishes and finally I achieved it by choosing Stok Kangri trek. It is a marvelous place in Ladakh region with a lot of challenging routes to be covered. The snow clad peaks were standing tall throughout the way to Stok Kangri. When I searched about this trek, I got to know that I should be physically fit. I started preparing one month before the trek. I was really excited to be in the group. We five friends booked through an agent. They arranged the trip very well with quality food and accommodation. Camping was absolutely fine. It was cold in the surrounding but the stay was fine. The ridges and the steep climbs gave us many challenges than expected. But still I was happy to accept those stringent conditions as the sights were beyond imagination. I was feeling sick when the high altitudes were conquered but somehow I managed to come out of the sickness in one day and continued with complete energy. The guides were well informed and experienced so that the journey was smooth and devoid of many difficulties. My friends also loved the trip. We have moved through many villages and met so many lovable people around. We had food from one of the houses in the village on one day and it was so tasty. Then we have walked through the town of Leh as well to know more about its local life. There is no other way than walking through these places which help us to enjoy the beauty of each location.

An avid trekker, Stok Kangri has been on my radar for some time now.. Let me tell you, making way through steep snow is not easy and requires a great amount of fitness levels but by the end of it, it is all worth it when you are on the top and among the few people who can witness such great beauty.

If you want to witness the true beauty of the Stok-Kangri region, take this trek only between July-September. You can not only enjoy the beauty of the white Himalayan peaks, but also the region, gets more beautiful during this time. Being a regular trekker, I really enjoyed it last August and i am planning for another one. Just a small piece of advice, be prepared for the sudden change in the temperature; rest is all extremely adventurous.
