Stok Kangri (6,153 m)

Stok Kangri is the highest mountain in the Stok Range of the Himalayas in the Ladakh region of northwest India. The peak is located in Hemis National Park, 12 km southwest of the trailhead at 3,610 m (11,845 feet) in the village of Stok and around 15 km southwest of the Ladakhi capital of Leh. Despite its altitude, Stok Kangri is a popular peak and is often climbed as an initial non-technical foray into high altitude mountaineering. However, Stok Kangri is very often underestimated for its difficulty level.The shortest and most popular approach to the peak ascends the Stok valley, along the Stok Chu. This valley's grazing landscape, especially near the village Stok, was devastated by flooding in the first week of August 2010, the most severe in decades.
