OVERVIEW

Nun Peak Expedition

  • Region - Leh, Ladakh
  • Duration - 22 days 
  • Grade - Challenging
  • Max Altitude - 7135m / 23,400 ft
  • Best Season - July /September

 

Nun Peak is located in Leh Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. Ladakh shares a border with Tibet in the east and is heavily influenced by Tibetan culture. The Nun Kun mountain massif in Leh Ladakh consists of two peaks (twin Himalayan peaks): Nun peak, 7135 m / 23,409 ft), and Kun peak 7077 m / 23,218 feet. Nun Peak, located in the remote landscape of the Zanskar ranges in northern India, is the highest mountain in the region. Climbing Nun peak is an excellent opportunity to get high altitude climbing experience on a classic Himalayan expedition. Easy accessibility and short approach to its base camp make Nun Peak one of the most appealing climbing expeditions in the Western Himalayas. The climbing period and season for Nun Peak is June through August. While the rest of the Himalayan regions face monsoon during this time, the Nun peak comes as an excellent choice for climbers to take on their adventures to the next level. 

 

After arriving in Delhi, you will meet your team and proceed to IMF – Indian Mountaineering Foundation for clearance and briefing with Liason Officer. The next day will be your flight to Leh, the former capital of the Himalayan kingdom of Ladakh and one of the very few remaining Buddhist strongholds in South Asia. At Leh, you get to visit 'off the beaten track' ancient sites, villages, colorful markets, and the abandoned royal palace. Explore the Buddhist monasteries steeped in history & experience the dominant landscape of the Indus River Valley and the encompassing Himalayan Giants.
