Mentok Kangri Expedition

36 km


6,250 meters

Best Time

July to September


10 days




Mentok Kangri expedition lies in the Rupshu valley in Ladakh on the Changthang plateau. The three summits of Mentok Kangri massif are Mentok Kangri 1 – 6,250 m, Mentok Kangri 2 – 6,150 m, and Mentok Kangri 3 – 6,210 m, all connected by a ridge. ‘Mentok‘ is a Tibetan name derived from a wildflower native to this region.

The 10-day trek begins from Karzok village which is located at the western shore of a famous turquoise lake named Tso Moriri. This plateau is inhabited by the famous Changpa nomads. The climb to Mentok Kangri 2 is a mix of icy slopes, boulder fields, traversing snow-slopes and the conditions at this time of the year. Views of Chamsher & Lungser Kangri across the expanse of Tso Moriri are magical, especially on the summit day!

It looks easier as compared to other mountaineering expeditions; Mentok kangri expedition requires good experience and training. It is meant only for experienced trekkers. A good acclimatization is a must before one can try to climb this peak. This acclimatization can be done near Leh or at base camp.
If you are a seasoned trekker or a mountaineer looking to test your limits, you probably have Mentok Kangri on your bucket list!


The best time to plan Mentok Kangri Expedition is June end to September end. It’s best to stay away from the colder months, as the winters in Ladakh are harsh beyond words.

For Mentok Kangri Expedition, you have to be very good in terms of physical and medical fitness. It requires high-altitude trekking experience of up to 5,000 meters. You can improve your physical fitness with workouts & breathing sessions. This expedition goes up to 6,250 meters there’s sudden altitude gain for that you need to have strong lungs.

  • Walking with a 20 kg rucksack strapped on your back is a terrific way to shape your legs and body. It aids in the burning of calories, the reduction of excess weight, and the strengthening of your body.
  • For high ascents, stair climbing is the finest workout. Include it in your training routine.
  • Jogging can help you live longer by strengthening your lungs and improving your lifetime. It’s a high-intensity aerobic activity that necessitates a lot of oxygen. This is an excellent activity for protecting weight and maintaining good health.
  • Squats are the most effective functional exercise for improving balance. Legs, thighs, hips, and hamstrings are also strengthened.
  • Pull-ups, push-ups, sprints, mountain climber, burpee, jumping jacks, and 60-second plank (3-5 sets each).
  • Pushing your body upstairs after stair climbing is another fantastic cardiovascular exercise. This is often considered to be the most effective workout for improving strength and power. Carrying an 18kg pack also helps a lot.
