“Trek to the summit of Stok Kangri, a 6000m peak in the Himalayas”
Dave and Claire Thompson are embarking on an amazing trekking adventure through Ladakh in northeast India where they will experience a challenge that has fantastic rewards for those who are brave enough to take it on.
The trek is organised and run by Discover Adventure Ltd. This is what they have to say about it:
“The Himalayas provides some of the most beautiful and rewarding mountain trekking in the world, Ladakh is home to rare wildlife including the elusive snow leopard, with sweeping high altitude plains dotted with small villages and ancient monasteries, or gompas there is much to take in. Stok Kangri is one of the ‘easiest’ 6000m peaks in the world, in that it does not require technical climbing experience, it does, however, require good physical fitness, and unwavering determination and self-belief! We spend time acclimatising in Leh, a friendly and picturesque Buddhist town, before trekking through remote villages and over high passes to Base Camp and our night-time ascent of Stok Kangri (6153m), where we should be rewarded with sunrise views over the Himalayas and Karakoram Mountains.”
As part of their fundraising, Dave and Claire will be raising sponsorship that will be donated towards the work of St David’s Hospice Care. Keep a look out on social media for announcements of their fundraising events:
