Arrival in Leh & Acclimatisation
We shall receive you at the airport in Leh (3500m) and transfer to the hotel. Our guide will meet you at the hotel and brief you about the upcoming climb. The first day will be spent resting at the hotel. In the subsequent days, we shall hike to progressively higher grounds for acclimatisation and return each day to the hotel. The remaining time will be spent going in and around the places of interest in Leh.
Drive to Kargil

Drive to Tangol
Post an early breakfast, we take a 5 hr drive to the village of Tangol (3700m), our last road head. Tonight we begin our camp-life with an over night stay in the tents. Once we reach Tangol, we spend the rest of the evening organizing our gear for the next day and walking around the scenic village.
Tangol to Base Camp

Base Camp-Summit Climbing Period
This period is reserved for climbing to Camp-1(5468m), Camp-2 (5990m) & Camp-3 (6436m) in phased manner. This will allow us sufficient time for our bodies to acclimatize. The period also includes rest day for recovery and spare days (to account for inclement weather, if any).
