Tips for Mt Stok Kangri Trek Ladakh:

This means preparing for extreme weather conditions. You have the option of bathing in the hotel, after which you can keep clean by using toddler wipes and a bowl of hot water every day. When lavatory circumstances are difficult, dig and pit-type lavatory tents may be available.
  • What to Carry: Warm clothes, shades, right hiking shoes, gloves, hiking stick, woolen caps amongst different hiking devices like bag packs, taking walks stick, head-torch, etc.
  • Prepare for intense climate: Stok Kangri is an entire day trip with numerous snowy blizzards, lush meadows, and slender trails. The temperature on the summit stays underneath zero degrees Celsius and on occasion falls sharply to minus 30 degrees Celsius. This is an arid vicinity, and from June to September, skies are clear, which permits you to soak in enchanting perspectives of the Zanskar Range and Karakoram range. During this period, you could revel in plentiful sunshine within the vicinity. When the sun sets the temperatures drop quickly. Wear a heat hat while dozing and keep a Nalgene bottle filled with warm water next to your sleeping bag to keep warm.
  • Stay Hydrated: Make sure to drink plenty of water while on the trip. In any case, you should bring more water bottles with you.
  • Altitude Headaches: One of the earliest signs and symptoms of altitude sickness is a headache. To provide the necessary medications for the same. Small hiccups are commonplace and should no longer deter you from trekking or make you fearful. If it lingers or worsens, though, ascending or trekking down is generally the best option.
  • Avoid the Sun: Taking care of your pores and skin and eyes is important. Sunburns take place a great deal faster at excessive elevation so make certain to use sunscreen in some instances in the afternoon and put on a hat. Sunglasses are essential, and if you wear eyeglasses, you should bring a couple of medical shades or at the very least a clip-on with you to Ladakh.
  • Dress in Layers: Layering allows you to easily adjust your body temperature while hiking while remaining comfortable. It's even higher if your layers include zippers, allowing you to better control the temperature of your frame.
  • Bring a camera: The Mt. Stok Kangri Trek in Ladakh is one of the most beautiful treks in the region. So much so that one might need to pause at each step and take photographs to preserve memories for the rest of one's life.
  • Bring Extra Batteries/Charging Packs: In the cold, your batteries will die a great deal faster than they do at home. This holds real for essentially each type of electronics you will use from telephones to cameras to kindles. While you could get it charged at a price at hotels, however, keep spare batteries and a transportable charger.
