Mt. Mentok Kangri (6250mts)

Cradled by the exquisite beauty of Ladakh’s Rupshu Valley, Mentok Kangri makes for a challenging trek, and graces the bucket list of every trekker! Nestled atop a stunning 6,250 meters, the trek is a window to the unfolding Changthang peaks overlooking the dazzling waters of Tso Moriri. A patchwork of quaint Ladakhi villages, rocky terrains, alpine meadows, and narrow, misty valleys crawling with exotic wildlife make up the Mentok Kangri trek. Snaking through Rumtse, Nuruchan, Tislang, Khardung La and Kyamar, the exhilarating feeling of scaling a six thousander never leaves you. Despite the challenging journey, the vast views dominated by Kang Yatse and Chamsher and Lungsher peaks more than makes up for the fatigue!
