Kang Yatse 2 height is 6250 meters or 20,600 ft. & is one of the highest trekkable mountains in the Ladakh region of India.
Kang Yatse 2 peak is located in Hemis National Park, near Stok village which is around 15 km southwest of the city of Leh, the capital of Ladakh.
Kang Yatse stands apart distinctively from its other surrounding peaks in the Markha Valley. The altitude, terrain, and gradient of the climb pose a challenge even to the fittest and experienced trekkers. Along with the snow conditions and cold, it offers a raw experience of the Ladakh Himalayas.
It is higher than the highest mountain in Europe, Mt. Elbrus at 18,510 ft and slightly higher than the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro which is at 19,340 ft.
The toughest challenge during Kang Yatse 2 Trek is the summit day, where you have to climb up to 1200 meters in a day to reach the peak. Trekkers have to start for the summit around midnight, brave cold temperatures to reach the summit. The route to Kang Yatse 2 summit is challenging and climbs over the base camp steeply on soft snows and loose rocks.
But once at the top, the views are breathtaking! Peaks of East Karakoram, Zanskar range and Ladakh are visible from the top like an eagle’s view.
Kang Yatse 2 trek is a thrilling adventure and every trekker dreams to summit this peak once in his lifetime.
The best season is from June to September with July & August as the peak summer months to plan for Kang Yatse 2 Trek. During these months, the trail towards Kang Yatse 2 peak is relatively clear and easy to walk with snow visible on the peaks.
