If you are looking for some spine chilling adventure vacations then get ready for enthralling mountain climbing in the picturesque destination, Leh Ladakh! The stunning holiday spot is known for some of the most scenic locales and brilliant tourist spots. The ideal climbing season starts from mid-May to mid-October, as during this season Ladakh is unaffected by the monsoon. The most popular mountain climbing spot in Leh is Nun-Kun Masif in the Great Himlayan Range. The major reason behind the huge popularity is the easy access from Kargil Pudum Road.

Zanskar Range is another famous mountain climbing area located in the South of Leh. Enjoy the adventurous mountain climbing at Stok-Khangri Massif in the Zanskar Range. After two days trekking from the village of stok, you will be at the base camp for several peaks of this massif.

Stok Khangri is the highest amongst all its peaks offering spectacular panoramic view of the central area of the Indus valley. Some other popular peaks in this area are Gulap Khangri (5,900 m), Matho West (5,950m), Kantak (5,275 m) and higher Konglacha peak (6,700m) positioned in south-west of Leh. For climbing in this region, there are various unnamed peaks with height of 5,500 metres and 6,400 metres.

You can also enjoy mountain climbing at the world famous Karokoram range which is located across the Ladakh range and Nubra Valley. The famous range is known for a huge chain of world famous peaks in the restricted areas. Thus they are not easily accessible to the foreign climbers and need to take special permission from the Government. Some of the most popular and preferred summits are Saser-I (7,415 m), Saser -II (7,513m ) and Saser III (7,495 m). They are accessible from the Nubra Valley.

In order to climb the listed peaks, foreign climbing expedition needs to attain permission from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation. Based on the height and popularity of the selected peak, you need to pay the booking fee. This will be charged by the Liason officer who has been assigned to every climbing team. For the processing of climbing application, the minimum period is six months.
