Teknisk arrangör: HiOnLife Kang Yatze is the most prominent peak in the MarkhaValley, towering into a throne shaped peak. There are two summits on this mountain. The main summit is higher at 6,400 m which is a technical climb involving a traverse across a knife-edge ridge. We will climb the lower western summit at 6,250 m.
The Markha valley offers the perfect acclimatization trek needed for this climb. The trek through this valley takes you through quaint villages, arrays of stupas and mani walls (stones inscribed with Buddhist prayers), old monasteries, ruined forts and beautiful homestays.
On a clear day you see views as far Nun Kun & Zanskar ranges in the West & the K2, Broad Peak & Gasherbrum Massif in the far North.
This trip is a perfect first “Himalayan Summit” experience. It is especially for those keen walkers who want a little more adventure than an ordinary trekking holiday, or if looking for a 6000 m climbing adventure.
After arrival to New Delhi, we fly in to the Ladakhi capital of Leh, where we spend the next 4 days acclimatizing. During this time we visit monasteries around Leh and also do a day trek from Likir to Yangthang for acclimatization.
The trek to Khang Yatse Base Camp ventures into the breathtakingly beautiful Markha Valley.
This journey in its own is magical and beautiful as we cross high passes and gentle meadows.
We gradually gain altitude as we trek through the valley of Markha and to the NimalingPlains.
The ascent of Khang Yaztse is safe from objective dangers, and is technically straightforward climb, involving around 35 degrees scree and snow slopes with a short section of ridge climbing. The summit is a beautiful dome with wide ranging views.
On a clear day you can see as far as the Karakoram Range and K2, about 200 Km to the North West.
Although this is not a technically demanding climb, the altitude of over 6000 m makes it physically demanding. Previous crampon experience is preferable but not essential.
