We offer 4 night & 5 days tour package of Climbing, Hiking & Mountaineering in Mentok Kangri. Enjoy trekking in Mentok Kangri, Ladakh & explore the beauty of Himalayan region
After an early break fast, a jeep will drop you at Korzok, which is 225 km from Leh and is the head quarter of the area. Korzok village is on the bank of the lake and the Korzok monastery stands mightily overlooking the village and the lake. You will reach there in the afternoon and stay over night at Tsomoriri (4450m)
The days trek starts early in the morning along the trail that first enter into the Korzok Phu Valley, then starts ascending up the slope among some of the herbal flowers whose color and the fragrance filled the valley. Then as we go around toward the back of the peak, some rocky path makes difficult for the horses. The base camp of the peak is quite windy and the camping area is rocky too.
The trek starts at around 02:00 am after having breakfast and then start ascending towards Mentok Kangri. To climb up along that scary slope of adjacent peak, probably above 6250 meters is technical and quite tough. But be sure that you should summit the peaks before sunrise. When you are at the top of the much-anticipated peak, it offers spectacular view of Mt Kharlung and at the other side, Mt Chamser and Mt Lungser with all those beautiful meadowy valleys and the blue lake all lying beneath. After enjoying the view, slowly and steadily get down towards base camp before it’s getting too late.
The day is rest to explore around the Lake and the village. Tsomoriri Lake is famous for its clear blue lake with the nomadic families settled around the lake. The local people consider the lake sacred. This lake is the breeding ground for numerous species of bird like Bar Headed Goose, great Crested Grebe, the Brahmin duck etc. Then visit the Korzok monastery before you leave this memorable trek.
Early in the morning, the jeep will pick you up and drive on to Polokkonka pass (13500 ft) and visit Tsokar (a small Lake). The place is famous for wild Asses and the nomadic settlements. From there, short drive brings you on national highway route (Leh-Manali). Continue driving towards Leh via Taklang Pass (5350mts, the second highest motor able pass in the world. Arrive Leh in the evening.
