Kangyatse is one of the famous spot for mountaineers and the adventure seekers. The peak is higher than the surrounding mountain ranges.Kang Yatse Lies south east of Leh and its situated in Markha Valley on the top of Nimaling Plateau. This beautiful peak is a desire for all the trekkers doing the Markha Valley, as they are always having a glimpse of this outstanding peak while trekking there. Actually there are two peaks one is easy and non-technical 6200mts high, and the other one is quit technical 6400mts. high. Though there are many options for this summit, but the best way is to combine with the Markha Valley. The way up the peak is easier than the other mountains and once you are on the top you would be stuck with wonder as you see the mountain ranges and the beautiful green valley’s lying beneath. If you like trekking and revel in physical hardships, you will love the trek to the top of Kang Yatse.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THIS TRIP :
Ladakh has several fascinating peaks to its credit, Kang Yatse being one of them. With a height of about 6400 meters, the trek to the top of it is adventurous and arduous. It takes you through some amazing valleys, some beautiful rivers and some really quaint villages that give a glimpse into the local life of people here.
You even come across some monasteries along the trek, which adds a bit of spirituality to this Ladakh trekking experience. We start our excellent trek from Spituk near Leh and cross pass of Ganda la before entering into Markha valley. A entire Markha valley is an evidense of old civilisation which has been passes through it and can still find ruins of castle and forts along the trek.Trekking along the Markha river enroute we pass through barley fields, beautiful villages, and experiencing daily life of Ladakh people. We climb to an open pasture of Nimaling, and climb gradually to the base camp. With a panoramic view finally ascending to left shoulder peak of kangyatse.We also cross pass of kongmaru la.
