Morning drive to Stok village is about 15 kms from Leh. Start walking from the trekking point along the stream. It is long and cumbersome walk through the valley. There are many shepherd camps in the different entrances of the sub valleys. The Mankarmo Camp is at the point from where the valley turns southward. It is possible to trek up to the first base camp in a day, but to get acclimatized it is recommended to make it in two days. The Camp at Mankarmo is on the river bed. There are no toilet facilities.
Keep walking in the same direction for around 30 minutes and then head towards southward. It involves crossing the stream at several points during the forward march. You reach at the camp after vertical ascent. Take care of your food and cloths from animal around. Overnight in Camp.
Full rest for acclimatization or Spare in case of Bad weather. Today you can also walk up to the advance base camp for acclimatization. The trail leads you towards west and then southward from the top of the hill. You will be passing through a few glaciers before you reach the advance base camp from where you start crossing the glacier. Overnight in Camp.
Keep your torch and other climbing gears ready before you set off early morning around at least by 4 am so that you get in time at the advance base camp and then wait till the day breaks for enough light to do the climbing. Start crossing the glacier towards south-east and then climb the peak to the western side. There are two ways to go up, one from the right side of the glacier, which is more technical and on the left side trail is easier having steps of rocks to do the summit. You can follow the same route back to the camp.

Dear Overland Escape, My family just returned back from Leh and we all agreed that we left part of our heart there - and one of the biggest reasons why was our experience with the team at Overland Escape. From the moment we arrived everything was smooth and the orientation and meetings at the hotel were very helpful. We were expertly driven to see the sights with Doulje and we quickly became comfortable with him and his very easy going spirit (which was perfect with two kids). He adapted very well to our personality and we shared good laughs. We had quite the adventure with Lobzang, Tulag and Tanzing. The rains interrupted our itinerary, but we always felt comfortable and safe with the decision making ability of the team. When we decided to make the best of it by camping in Zeng Chen they made sure they could make it as special as possible. Dinner that evening was amazing! A very special thank you to Lobzang who really looked after our 8-year old son Alex. Alex especially felt a connection with him and Lobzang was very patient and friendly. I know that creating a special experience for others is not about luck - it's about working hard to build a team of good people and having pride in what you do and where you live. The magic is about making it seem easy even though I know it's not and the team worked really hard. My family will remember this very special experience and we can't wait to come back again.
Our trip was even more memorable and enjoyable because of the facilities that Overland Escape provided us.Mr. Tunduk Namgyal, who drove us in and around Ladakh , was very well versed with the roads, had an excellent idea about the climate and all the information & history about the places we visited. Overland provided us excellent hotel arrangements and made sure our trip was one of the best ever....
It's been a week since we've returned to the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and we haven't stopped raving and reminiscing about the fabulous time we had trekking from Raru to Shang Sumdo. We just wanted you to know that we have really enjoyed having Namgyal as our guide. His enthusiasm to share his knowledge of the wildlife and the local culture has enriched the experience of our trek tenfold. Just when the walking sometimes gets too tedious, he would point out a herd of blue sheep, a pug mark left by a snow leopard or a few wild asses on a ridge; wild life we would have missed have we been trudging on our own. He knows when to slow down and quicken the pace when there is need. We have felt really safe and well looked after by your staff the whole time. There was one particular river crossing that we were quite worried as we have read that the river can be uncrossable in July. Fortunately with all the prayers and offerings that Namgyal has made to Buddha along the trek, it must have paid off as the river did not swell to an unmanageable level. Namgyal, together with Tulag and Nawang helped us across the river safely.
We've also enjoyed the variety of food Tulag prepared for us every meal and the effort your staff had made to make the dining tent a cosy place to eat (candles and napkins! wow!) His kitchen tent is so organized and as we are used to preparing our own simple food when camping, it is a really pleasant change not to worry about that aspect this time round. He has definitely impressed us with his apple pie, pizza and cake-baking skill. Since our return, I have tried to replicate one of his egg curry recipe but somehow haven't got it quite right yet.
Overall, we have really been very impressed by your attentive and hardworking staff and your recommendation of the trek route couldn't have been better. The remoteness of the trek route is a big plus for us. Thank you for a fabulous trekking experience.
Overland Escape helped us discover the amazing Nubra Valley, then guided us through the spectacular Markha Valley trek and also arranged for a successful summit bid on Kang Yatze 2 (6200m). An amazing trek! Overland were professional and friendly. Our guide (Namgyal) and support team were fantastic and we would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to experience the wonders of Ladakh. We would love to return and will certainly be in touch with Overland Escape to plan our next adventure....
Thank you very much for your all Support & Service.Hotel, Bike & tents all the services are up to the Mark. We must say the correct and prompt support from Your Side was appreciable. Guest is Satisfied and Happy with All Services.
Thanks Again for Making Tour Memorabe!
That’s about all Ladhkhi I could learn in one week from Tundup.
Recently my wife and me had the pleasure of visiting Leh and some of the popular surrounding areas like Ule / Lamayuru, Nubra Valley and Pangong lake.
Our visit was from July 3 to 10, 2016 and was indeed a very nice trip. This was made possible because of the 2 persons who attended and took care of us.
One was Mr Tsetan, who took care of our welfare and gave us the necessary guidance, advise which is much needed in a new place. The second person was our driver, Tundup, who drives the Innova
with regn no. JK ------2962. Tundup was always very prompt, well behaved , courteous and acted as the perfect guide. Through you, I would like to thank both of them for making our visit to Leh memorable indeed.
Unfortunately, circumstances did not allow me to meet you while we were in Leh. However, on a personal note, I would like to thank you and your team for taking good care of us. May , by the grace of Lord Buddha, your company grows to greater heights.
Please take care of Tsetan and Tundup. They are both very good boys.
Please do call me if and whenever you are in New Delhi. It will be a pleasure to meet you.
Thanking you very much.
