You can take an early morning flight from Delhi to Leh. The first day will be predominantly checking-
in the hotel and getting acclimatizing to the local weather. You will stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 01: Arrive Leh (3,500m)

You will get used to Leh’s climate on the second day. As Leh is a high altitude region, it is significant
that you spend time around the city to adapt to the local climate. This becomes helpful in the
coming days when you trek in the mountains.

Day 02: Acclimatization Day around Leh

The third day is an additional day for acclimatization. Ideally, you can spend the day to do last-
minute shopping for any hiking equipment. You can also rent trekking gears. You can explore the
local places of Leh and rest for the day.

Day 03: Extra acclimatization day in Leh

Today, you will drive from Leh to Karzok. It is a beautiful drive of about 5 hours amongst the scenic
landscape. Enjoy the drive as you would be trekking to the Korzok Phu tomorrow. Get to know your
trek mates as you drive through the gorgeous mountains trails. You will reach Korzok village. You will
stay here overnight.

Day 04: Drive from Leh to Korzok (4100m)

You will trek alongside Tsomoriri, with Lunger and Chamser Kangri. The other side is a beautiful lake
that you can’t miss. It is a long and challenging two-hour trek, as you descend about 800 metres to
Karzok Phu. You can not spot Mentok Kangri that stands tall in glory. You will stay overnight in
camps at Karzok Phu

Day 05: Trek to Korzok Phu

You will trek to the base camp for Mentok Kangri. It is another six-hour day and it will be a strenuous
day going uphill. There will be some moraine walking as you will try to camp close to the mountain
to reduce the time taken on summit day. You will stay overnight at Base Camp.

Day 06: Trek to Base Camp (5,250m)

This will be a rest day. After all the hard work in the past five days, you will take a breather. This also
helps you to get further acclimatized to the mountain region. After lunch, you will have a briefing
session on how to use the equipment during the summit. Overnight stay will be at Base Camp. Get
used to climate and briefing day

Day 07: Acclimatize and Orientation Day

You will hike to another camp and rest for the day. The camp is on a higher region and close to the
summit. You will stay overnight in the high camp. You will go to sleep early as the summit will begin
early in the morning tomorrow. Have a good sleep and be prepared for the Mentok Kangri summit.

Day 08: Trek to High Camp

Today will be the day of the summit. You will ascend to the summit point. The day starts early at
around midnight. You will start at around 1 am and trek through big boulders for the first 1 to 2
hours. There might be loose and trekking on it takes about 15-20 minutes. It is a steep climb to the
ridge. Then the summit is around an hour and a half away. The ascend will be physically enduring
but the view from the summit is mystical. You can see Tso-Moriri lake, end-to-end. Your overnight
stay will be at Base Camp.

Day 09: Summit Mentok Kangri - 6230m

This will be a buffer day just in case of contingency on bad weather or any emergencies. Ideally, this
will be a day of rest.

Day 10: Contingency Day

This will be a short day as you descend for about two-three hours from the base camp to Karzok
village. Your overnight camping will be at Karzok village.

Day 11: Trek to Karzok

You will drive back from Karzok to Leh with ever-lasting trekking experience.

Day 12: Karzok to Leh
