Stok Kangri, one of the popular trekking destinations in the cold deserts of India. This magnificent peak is situated in the Stok Range of Himalayas, 24 kms from the district of Leh. Even though the trek is the most beautiful one, it is not at all a cake walk. The altitude of 20000 feet itself is the major hurdle in reaching there. The cold and dry weather adds to the difficulty. But with a proper preparation and some extra bit of efforts on fitness, an average trekker can attempt this climb.
