These Exhilarating Photos from Stok Kangri Trek Will Get You All Stok'd To Take Up The Challenge

If there is any trek that comes as close as being an expedition, then it is undoubtedly Stok Kangri Trek. With Zanskar Ranges to your south and Karakoram to the north, the 360 views from the top of the summit are overwhelming. 

Highest Peak in the Stok Ranges of the Himalayas, climbing to an altitude of 6,152 meters lets the trekkers use all the technical equipment used in an expedition. Beyond this, all the expeditions like Everest Base Camp require you to be a mountaineering expert.

WORD OF ADVICE: Stok Kangri Trek comes under the category of challenging treks. With greater heights come the challenges of HAPE, HACE, and terribly steep climbing. Hence, only experienced trekkers and mountaineers should attempt to scale Stok Kangri.

Let these stupendous images from the Stok Kangri Trek get you all Stok'd up. ;)
