For those of you who were not aware what the Stok Kangri is, this is mountain peak, located in the village of Stok , which can be seen from the valley of Leh and is 6120m high in altitude. Tourists are always advised to reside in this particular place for almost 4-5 days to get used to the climate and weather before proceeding to the high altitude ofLeh. This time is sufficient and very much required to get acclimatized. For visiting this peak you must carry sufficient clothing for staying warm during the cold and snowy weather conditions.
Once you start your trek from Stok you will notice that the trek passes through forests and even deserts and finally one reaches the base at Stok Kangri which is located at a altitude of 4800m. Here one stops overnight at Mankarmo. From here one can visit the pinnacle and even come back on the same day or you could even stop for a day at the snowline peak which is right above the Stok Kangri High Camp at an altitude of 5300m. One can see the billowing prayer flags.
