the pride of Ladakh and one of the least explored 6000mt summits in India. Be the one to join the elite club of trekkers to have conquered the 20000ft / 6000mt peak. Being at 20K Ft it is still considered as an easy peak as this peak does not require technical skills. This route has been uniquely designed to approach the summit from one side and descend from the other.
