Overview

Mount Nun is the highest peak of Zanskar range in Ladakh. Mount Nun Expedition is for experienced mountaineers only aspiring for Mount Everest & other 8000M+ peaks. Demanding glacial formations, heavy icefalls, thoroughly crevassed surfaces, vertical ice walls, and unpredictable weather conditions makes it more challenging.
The Nun Kun massif is separated by short plateau of about 4 km in length. Mt. Nun 7,135 m (23,409ft) and its neighbor peak Mt. Kun 7,077m (23,218ft) have separate traditional routes. After unsuccessful attempts to climb the mountain in 1934, 1937, and 1946 the first ascent of Nun was in 1953 by French mountaineers Mrs. Claude Kogan and Mr. Pierre Vittoz, a Swiss missionary residing in Leh Ladakh.
Mt. Nun expedition is perfect for those mountaineers who have already done 6000 M+ peaks.
Due to the extreme & unpredictable weather and rough terrain demands aspirants to be physically fit with high mental endurance. It is mandatory that you have enough experience in mountain climbing before planning for Mt Nun Expedition. Prior knowledge of mountaineering techniques like roping up procedures, using ice axe in front point climb, climbing with ascender-descender, carabineers, snow stakes or anchors, crampons, fixed roping, and jumar climbing is mandatory.

How to Reach for Mount Nun Expedition

The stunning valleys, the magnificent mountains and the breathtaking views of the landscape call every traveler to explore Ladakh. Ladakh is one of the most scenic places to visit in India and presumably on top. It has an airport and is connected by road to major places like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chandigarh and Srinagar. Leh is situated at an altitude of 3524 mtrs. In fact. highways leading to Leh are open only between May and October and covered in snow for the remaining months. Leh’s easy accessibility by air led to growth of tourism over the years. There are two ways to reach Leh: by road via Manali (Himachal Pradesh) or Srinagar (Kashmir) and by air with a flight to Kushok Bakula Rimpochee airport located just 4 km from Leh city centre.

Nearest Airport: Leh has its own airport, which is well connected with other important places in India. Regular flights link Leh with Delhi, Jammu and Srinagar. The checking is a bit strict on Leh airport being a military airport. From airport, local cabs can be hired to reach anywhere in Leh.
