MENTOK KANGRI EXPERIENCE:

Mentok is the Tibetan name of a wild flower growing in the Ladakh region during the summer season. Mentok Kangri, located in the Rupshu plateau in Eastern Ladakh, lies south of the village of Korzok and the highest peak of the range is at 6250 metres. It consists of 3 peaks – Menthok 1, Menthok 2 and Menthok 3, which offer some breath-taking and stunning views of the landscapes of Tso Kar and Tso Moriri.

We will start the trek from Korzok village and setup our base camp at a height of 5240 metres. Following a day’s rest at the base camp, we will summit Mentok I (6250m). After a long trek to reach the summit, you will be treated with amazing scenes of the Tso Moriri lake and beautiful horizon of snow, clouds and spectacular landscape all around you.

This trek is not very demanding technically but is quite challenging for adventurous trekkers.
