OVERVIEW

Kang Yatse II Expedition

  • Region - Leh, Ladakh, J & K
  • Duration - 12 Days 
  • Grade - Challenging
  • Max Altitude - 20,500 ft
  • Best Season - Monsoon

 

Kang Yatse II is the most striking and easily accessible peak in the Markha Valley. There are two separate routes to approach this peak. Kang Yatse ll is a perfect climb for trekkers who would like to attempt their first 6000-er. The lower western Peak of Kang Yatse II is more easily accessible and therefore frequently climbed. The main summit of Kang Yatse I requires technical climbing skills. Many trekkers approach the climb attempting both Kang Yatse l & ll with additional climbing days. Trekking in Markha Valley helps in better acclimatization and makes it easier to approach this 6000m peak. Kang Yatse peak gives you great views of the Zanskar ranges in the West & the K2, Broad Peak & Gasherbrum Massif in the far North.
