The Western Summit of the Kang Yatse Peak, or Kang Yatse II, offers the perfect challenge for folks looking to move a step up from trekking peaks. A semi –technical peak (Rated Alpine PD), just above the magical 20,000 feet barrier, it lets you dip your feet in the exciting world of mountaineering without overwhelming you. On a clear summit day, view K2, Broad Peak and Gasherbrum Massif in the North and Nun Kun and the Zanskar peaks in the West.
Trekking through the Markha Valley, to reach the Base Camp for Kang Yatse, offers a great acclimatization opportunity. Kick off two bucket list items in one go with this 12-day Adventure.
