  • Drive from Leh to Stok village. We load up bags on the horses and head off for Mancarmo. Walk past a beautiful valley where you can see unusual rock formations pointing skywards in orange, purple and green colors. Mancarmo (4250 m) is the summer pasture of Stok villagers. Set up camp for the evening.
  • Day 4:  Mancarmo Base Camp (5020M)- 3-4 hrs hike

It is a strenuous hike and in the last part we may even use ropes, ice axes and crampons (depending on snow conditions). As you reach the top in the morning, you are likely to witness the most beautiful sight of the Himalayas, lit up by the slowly rising morning sun. In good weather conditions we can see the Saser group in the Great Karakoram Range, where K2 lies. Leave a Khata, religious scarf, on the mountaintop with prayer flags and start climbing down to the base camp. We reach camp around mid-morning/ afternoon for a much deserved cup of tea and rest.
