Mentok Kangri II Expedition


Brief Description

The Mentok Kangri massif lies on the western shores of Tso Moriri in eastern Ladakh in the Rupsu valley. The three summits are at 6250 m, 6150 m, and 6210 m, connected by an easy ridge. Mentok Kangri II lies at 6,250 m, towering over the western edge of Tso Moriri. You will drive to Karzok on the banks of Tso Moriri, before setting base near the Rupshu plateau inhabited by the Changpa nomads. The summit is an easy snow/ice climb offering amazing birds-eye views of Tso Moriri and the surrounding peaks including the 6600 m Chamser and Lungser Kangri.
