Overview

Nun (7,135m) is one of the highest peak of Suru valley which is located in Zanskar Himalayas. The massif is located near the Suru Valley, about 250 km (160 miles) east of Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir. Due to quick access from Leh to base camp and the ease with which a climbing permit can now be obtained, these are good options for those looking for an affordable 7,000er in quick time. The most frequented climbing area, the Nun-Kun massif comprises of several peaks, chief among them being Nun (7,135m) and Kun (7,077m). Nun is approachable both from Tangol (70 km. from Kargil) and Gulmatongo (110km. from kargil). Some attempts are also made from Parkachik (90km south of kargil) along the parkachik glacier. The base camp can be reached after a day's trek from both Gulmatongo and Tangol, tour sector: Delhi/Leh/Heniskut/Kanji/Tashitongde/Base camp/Leh/Delhi ... See More+

Package Itinerary
  • Day 1
    Arrival Delhi
    Arrival Delhi
    Other Benefits
    • Hotel
    • Transfers

    Arrives at Delhi International Airport at 0900 the following morning. Local time in Delhi is 4.5 hours ahead, but hopefully we will have been able to sleep on the flight. We are met at the airport and taken to our hotel, which is very conveniently placed for sightseeing in the city. In the afternoon, we must visit the Indian Mountaineering Federation (IMF) to obtain our climbing permit.

  • Day 2
    Fly to Leh, the capital of Ladakh
    Arrive Leh
    Other Benefits
    • Transfers

    We make an early start to take the flight to Leh, the capital city of Ladakh. The flight takes us over the Greater Himalaya and makes an exciting landing at one of the highest airports in the world. We can hope to get excellent views of the Zanskar Range as we fly-in and, on a clear day, the great peaks of the Karakoram are visible to the north. We are met at the airport and taken to the Kang Lha Chen. The rest of the day is at leisure. Leh is at an altitude of nearly 3,510m, and you can expect to feel the effects of the rarefied atmosphere.

  • Day 3
    Exploring the city of Leh
    Leh Local Sightseeing Acclimatized
    Other Benefits
    • Sightseeing

    Today is your own to relax and stroll around Leh, to allow the effects of the altitude to wear off. This is an important period, which allows the body to acclimatise. There are plenty of distractions in Leh, varying from scenic and cultural to gastronomic. Alternatively your leader can arrange a short drive out to visit some of the fantastic monasteries that have existed here since the 11th Century.

  • Day 4
    Drive to Heniskut and trek to Kanji Village (3,870m)
    Heniskut Kanji village

    • Horses
    • Transfers

    Instead of driving directly to Kun, we will complete a three day trek to the Kanji La (5,280m), partly for the acclimatisation, but also for the opportunity to explore a little of this fascinating region. The drive to Kanji Village is an adventure in itself, firstly along the main highway from Leh to Kashmir, before turning off for the last 10Km through a spectacular gorge. It takes roughly 4 hours to get to Heniskut - which is like driving back into the middle ages. From the road head, the trek to Kanji Village takes 3 hours. This is on rough road, but it's better to walk than to drive.

  • Day 5
    Trek to base of Kanji La (4,355m)
    Trek base Kanji la

    • Climbing Equipment
    • helper

    Soon after leaving camp in the morning we break off heading steeply up the valley side to a pass at 4,600m, then on up a side valley to the final steep slopes which take us to the pass itself with wonderful views of the mountains of the Zanskar (4 hours from camp). A long descent down barren scree slopes to Mapollan is quite tough for the ponies (9 hours).

  • Day 7
    End trek at Tashitongde and drive to Golmatangol (3,650m)
    Trek Tashitiongde Drive to Golmatangol

  • Day 9
    Ascent of Nun via the West Ridge
    Other Benefits
    • helper
    • Horses

    We need to establish three camps on the mountain and fix ropes on various sections of the route. The Sherpas will do the bulk of load carrying and fixing, but each member of the team needs to be prepared to carry their own share of the kit.
    The route to Camp 1 is first up a moraine and scree slope and ridge for one hour, then onto the glacier and up an icefall with 200m of fixed line, which gives access to a huge glacial plateau.

    Camp 1, at 5,500m, is on this plateau. The route from here goes across to the base of the mountain and the start of 600 vertical metres of almost continuous fixed ropes to the site of Camp 2.

    Camp 2, at 6,100m, is squeezed onto a narrow sloping shelf between a glacial ridge and a vertical drop of a very long way.
    Above Camp 2, a short scramble takes us onto the rocky summit of a subsidiary peak, with a steep snow slope down the other side to a crevassed col. The col gives access to snow and ice slopes, which have one short section of fixed rope and lead to the plateau at around 6,400 meter.

    Camp 3 is put on this open area, giving access to the final summit slopes which terminate in a steep and narrow snow arête.
