This is one of the best known trekking peaks in the Himalayas. It’s a relatively straight forward 20,000 foot peak from which you can see snow and ice peaks in all directions including K2. In the lead up to the climb, the trek passes through cultivated valleys during which you acclimatise to the altitude and visit villages, ruined castles and monasteries and finish in Leh from where you start your ascent. This is a 25 day trek.
