Ladakh is an ethereal cold desert that goes by names such as ‘The Last Shangrila’, Moonscape and Little Tibet – all of which ring true, it is a land that seldom fails to baffle or surprise. The South Ridge or Stok Kangri provides an exhilarating climb in these fantastic surroundings. Although straightforward, the route is challenging and interesting, providing stunning views of the Karakoram Range and on a clear day, even K2 in the far distance.
One of the highlights of the trip is visiting Leh, the ancient capital of Ladakh. The regal air of the city, with its ‘potala-like’ palace and the charm of the friendly and traditionally dressed Ladakhi people, all contribute to the experience of this fantastic challenging expedition.
