We arrange all kinds of a mountaineering expedition, from trekking and peak climbing to expeditions to peaks over 7000m. Over the years, we have organised several mountain expeditions in the
Himalayas and we have well supported and professional teams.

We make arrangements for your camping, transportation, climbing and supporting crew, and as well as a permit for climbing from the Indian Mountaineering Foundation and all medical precautions.

Stok Kangri
The peak of Stok Kangri at 6153m looms over the town of Leh. The popular climb is not very technical or strenuous but can be difficult due to the high altitude. From the peak, you can see the breathtaking
view over all of Ladakh. The Stok-Kangri expedition is covered in four days.

Mentok-Kangri
Mentok, meaning flower in Ladakhi, is a two peaked mountain near the beautiful lake of Tso-moriri. Mentok-Kangri (6170m) and Mentok (6125m) can be climbed during
the summer season from mid-July to October.

Lungser
Lungser (6666m) got its name from the river which drains into Tso-moriri in the region of Rupshu.
The climbing is moderate and this is a popular trip with beautiful scenery.
The summit can be climbed from July to October.

Go-Leb Kangri
Go-Leb (6120m), meaning flat-headed, describes the flat peaked mountain near Leh. This is a technical climb and therefore requires climbing expertise and experience. The expedition takes at least
four or five days and can be done between July and September.

Nun-Kun Massif
A popular climbing area for experienced climbers, the Nun-Kun massif comprises of several peaks, chief among them being Nun (7135m) and Kun (7087m). Kun was first summited in 1913 by
the Italian mountaineer Piacenza, while Nun Nun, the highest summit of the massif,
was first scaled by the Swiss climber, Madame Claude Kogan in 1953.

The mountains are on the Kargil-Zanskar road. It is approached from both Tangol (70km from Kargil) and Gulmatongo (110km from Kargil), depending upon the route of ascent allotted by the
Indian Mountaineering Foundation. There is an approach from Parkachik (90km
south of Kargil) along the Parkachik glacier. The approach from Gulmatongo
involves crossing the Suru River over a footbridge. The base camp can
be reached after a day’s trek, both from Gulmatongo and Tangol.


Other known peaks in the massif are Pinnacle (6930m), White-Needle (5600m), Z-1 (6400m),
and D-41 (5600m). In addition, there are many unnamed peaks in the altitude
range of 5500m to 6500m in the same area.

Adjacent to the Nun-Kun massif is the Bobank Peak (5971m), which is also frequent by foreign climbing expeditions. It is approached via the Chelong Valley, westward of Panikhar.
