Why we like it ...

Kang Yatse is the second most popular summit to conquer in India. In this 11-day trip, trek to Kang Yatse without requiring any mountaineering skills – this is a great chance to conquer a 6200-meter summit!

Overlooking the Markha Valley, the summit of Kang Yatse’s magnificent stature stands distinctly apart from the surrounding mountains, few of which are also over 6000 meters tall. Come along and for this trekking challenge with experienced guides from Rocky Feet, and find yourself standing at the top of Kang Yatse - feel the Himalayan high!

This Markha Valley trek is one of the most popular treks in the entire Ladakh region. One can see the Saser Massif, Stok Kangri, as well as the Karakoram Range peak along this trek. Also, explore the traditional culture and Buddhism native to the region by visiting isolated monasteries. The area is also rich in wildlife featuring the elegant snow leopard, cute Marmot, fluffy Blue sheep, strong Ibex, and so much more.
