Mt. Kang Yatse II (6250m) Expedition

Kang Yatse is a mesmerising peak that overlooks the sprawling beauty of Markha Valley in Ladakh. Made up of two distinct peaks, Kang Yatse bears a striking resemblance to a king’s throne. The western peak called Kang Yatse II reigns mighty at a dizzying height of 6,250 m, and opens up to ravishing panoramic views of the neighbouring Zanskar and Nun Kun ranges, along with the mighty K2. A great, lesser known alternative to the popular Stok Kangri trek, the Kang Yatse II introduces you to the basics of mountaineering without overpowering you. It is well on its way to becoming one of the most sought after treks in Ladakh!

How to Prepare Physically for your Trek?

Every trek demands excellent physical fitness. Focus on three major aspects- cardiovascular endurance, strength training, and trek specific training. For cardiovascular fitness, begin by jogging 5 km everyday. You should ideally be able to cover 5 km within 25 to 30 minutes depending on your trek difficulty level. Target exercises that will strengthen your core, hip, knee, and back muscles. Include squats and planks, and regulate the number of reps and sets as per the difficulty level of your trek. For trek specific training, include stair climbing with a heavy but well supported backpack. You can also take short hikes with steep inclines to adjust to uneven trails. Read More.
