Chamser Kangri at 6637m is technically quite straight forward, giving a strong and fit trekker an excellent chance of climbing a significant Himalayan peak, and writing themselves into climbing history books without prior technical climbing experience. The primary barrier is the thin air surrounding this lofty peak. 

HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS TRIP :

From a base camp above the lake, the peak is climbed by way of a high camp and a long summit day. Technically undemanding, this peak presents an unavoidable challenge to fit and adventurous trekkers. A super trek and climb combination in a special part of the world.

The climb (to a summit of 6637 metres and including a high camp of over 6000 meters) mean that this trip will present a challenge to even very fit group members. The lower slopes of the mountain are likely to be free of snow at the time of our trips but we will likely encounter snow above our high camp and crampons and ice axes are required for this trip. It is recommended that all group members have previous experience of winter hill walking as well as previous experience of trekking at altitude.

About Korzok village: Korzok is a small village situated 3 km from the northwest end of the Tso Moriri Lake. Most of the inhabitants of the Korzok are changpa nomads. At an altitude of 4572 m, Korzok is one of the India’s highest permanent villages. During the summers Changpas camp at various places in their robos (small tents) and look after their flock. Their sheep produce the famous pashmina, one of the costliest varieties of wool. Traditional weavers from Kashmir and Himachal buy this wool. The recent boom in its value has led to their prosperity, though that is not evident in their life-style. Korzok meaning is ‘Middle of the mountain’ and it’s an excellent location to enjoy the lake side. There is a monastery at Korzok which is believed to be about 500 years old. Korzok monastery lies on the traditional trading route between Spiti and Ladakh, it was visited by many of early explorers.

I would like to climb Chamser and Lungser this summer in July. What dates do you have for such trips?
Thanks you!

February 28, 2017

The permissions for climbing Chamser & Lungser Kangri is stalled for the moment. Authorities are not giving permissions to climb for security reasons. Instead we are climbing Kang Yatse 2 this 2017 season in July. We have a good team set up.
